SPATEX organisers are making preparations for its upcoming event and doing its best to help all exhibitors have a successful show. As such, we are mandating increased measures to protect exhibitors from ‘canvassing’, etc. at SPATEX 2024.
SPATEX has a zero-tolerance policy regarding ‘canvassing’. Please note that while all attendees are invited to the exhibition floor, any attendee who is observed to be ‘canvassing’ for business in the aisles or other public spaces, or on another company’s stand, will be asked to cease this behaviour, and will be asked to leave immediately, if it persists.
SPATEX recognises that ‘out-boarding’ can take the form of commercial activity conducted from a hotel guest room or hospitality suite, a restaurant, or any other public place in proximity to our event. For the purposes of this policy, ‘out-boarding’ violations may occur at venues other than the exhibition floor and at other events. It is for this reason SPATEX must be informed of any hospitality suites where business is being transacted by exhibitors, and consent must be obtained from SPATEX prior to the event. Your co-operation would be greatly appreciated. Please note that companies not exhibiting will not be granted permission by SPATEX and the Coventry Building Society Arena to hire rooms in the complex during the SPATEX tenancy.
This is SPATEX’s ‘Canvassing/Out-boarding’ Policy, which will be posted on the website and signage around the exhibition hall.
