All Heavy Goods Vehicles are required to report to the Gate Office prior to attempting to access the site. Drivers will be walked to their stand and are requested to follow the instructions of the traffic marshals. This is to minimize the impact on the site turf and walkways. We request that drivers who are driving vehicles that are to remain on an exhibition stand, inspect and plan their route to the stand, ensuring minimal maneuvering on the stand.

Flagpoles and Temporary Graphic Structures

Please note that under no circumstances are any exhibitors permitted to dig, trench or drain their stands. If you are intending to use flagpoles on your stand they must be free standing with the necessary ballast and ropes to secure them. Any guide ropes must fall within the stand area and not into the visitor walkways. Guide ropes are to be suitably marked at ground level up to waist height. The Event Operations Manager will inspect these structures during the last day of build up – if they are found to be unsafe they may need to be removed or modified.

All shortages will be invoiced in full, replacement prices are available on request.

Generators

The power at 2022 ADMA Agri Show was plagued with problems die to unusual rain and drastic changes in site plan due to last minute venue changes and restrictions. 2023 will see regular provision of power to stands as in 2021. This said Exhibitors are not permitted to supply their own generators to the site unless prior consent is given in the case of special machinery or 3 phase requirement.
