Venue Services
Shell scheme is hired from the Barbican on a per show basis.
The panels that make up shell scheme walls are covered in mid-grey nylon loop fabric. Exhibits and display materials up to 1kg can be fixed using Velcro; any heavier displays can be supported with an alternative system.

Name Boards
are 1500mm in length and 160mm wide. The lettering will be black on a white background and the wording required should be ordered by each exhibitor on an appropriate form. Alternative colours and/or logos are available by special arrangement.

All stand and gangway areas within the halls are covered with grey carpet tiles. If any exhibitor wishes to carpet their stand a platform must be laid prior to doing so. Exhibitor’s carpet can then be affixed to a platform and must be finished
with a safety trim or edging strip. Carpet must not be laid directly onto the Hall carpet.

Space Only Sites
Exhibitors using ‘space only’ sites should be made aware that this does not entitle them to shell walling, a name panel, stand number or an electrical package.

Any exhibitor with a ‘space only’ stand in excess of 35m2 or more than 4m in height must submit detailed plans of their stand to Hall Management at least one month prior to the event for approval by the Corporation of London’s District Surveyors Office. All stand materials must conform to the Corporation of London Exhibitions and Similar Displays Standard Conditions.

Stand Electrics
Hall Management would recommend that the Barbican’s electrical contractor RG Exhibitions Ltd. carry out all electrical work on shell scheme stands. Exhibitors are permitted to employ their own technicians to install exhibits however, connection to the hall supply must be carried out by KR Exhibitions Ltd..

The Halls electrical supply is:
a) Standard single phase 240V 50 Cycles
b) Three phase 415V 50 Cycles
c) By arrangement 24 hours supply

Any special displays, such as lasers, strobes etc, must have prior approval from the Licensing Authority and any such requests must be made through Hall Management at least one month prior to the event.
