Exhibitor General Information
The Doncaster Racecourse Exhibition Centre is an awesome venue and is brilliant for all exhibitors. The main halls for trading are expansive, light and airy. We have small luxuries which we don’t find at all events for example:
There is free parking for everyone attending the show.
98% of the venue is carpeted on all levels of the venue.
It is very clean with loads of bathroom facilities on all floors.
Lighting is bright and hall has heating / air conditioning (please don’t laugh, but there have been occasions where we have all done a cold, wet and dusty show)!
Level loading / unloading for traders and multiple lift and stair access for all other exhibitors not on the ground floor of the venue.
The venue is very media friendly, it is our goal to entertain with constant music playing and we will have visuals on the 70 flat screens across the exhibition centre (this helps create a fun, exciting, buying and selling atmosphere).
The tiny downside is that access into the building is not huge but ample, we will have traffic Marshalls organising the loading / unloading bay so everyone can get their stock in / out fast and efficiently.
