THE UK’S LEADING INDEPENDENT SHOW FOR PROJECT,
PROGRAMME, PROCESS AND RESOURCE MANAGEMENT
QEII Centre in Westminster, London | 27th April 2023

Exhibitor Code of Conduct

As we want to ensure everyone has a great experience, we have put together some guiding principles for appropriate behaviour during our event. We ask that you help with this by familiarising yourselves with the policy below and ensuring you and your team respect these rules.

Stand staff

Your stand staff represent your company and values, so it is very important to ensure that they are friendly, properly briefed and knowledgeable of your products and services. We expect stand staff to be dressed in appropriate business attire and will not accept sexualised outfits or anything deemed by the organiser to be offensive, inappropriate or provocative.

Please also note that promotional activities, including handing out literature and lead generation, should take place only within the confines of your stand, not in the exhibition aisles. Anyone found to be handing out materials outside of the confines of their stand without permission from the exhibition organiser will be forced to permanently suspend this activity.

Stand design

Your stand should represent who you are as a business, your company values and what your objectives are. We advise you to choose an interactive stand design which is inspiring, educational and thought-provoking. Make sure you remember to clearly state the products/services you offer in your stand design – this way, if your staff are too busy to speak to a visitor, at least they will know if you offer the solution they are looking for and can come back later. If we find the design of your stand or anything you are displaying offensive or inappropriate, we, as the organisers, have the right to insist that you permanently remove it.

Respect your neighbour and they will respect you

If you are intending to do on-stand presentations and promotions, we ask that you kindly respect your neighbour, keep sound levels within your stand and ensure speakers face into your stand. If a neighbouring company finds your presentation or promotion too loud or disruptive, please turn the volume down. If you plan on running formal presentations on your stand, please consider providing headphones for your audience.

Harassment-free experience

We will not tolerate the harassment of exhibition participants. Anyone violating the rules below may be expelled from the exhibition and the venue at the discretion of the organiser.

Harassment includes, but is not limited to:

  • Offensive verbal comments related to gender, age, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, religion, or race
  • Sexual images displayed in public spaces
  • Intentional intimidation, stalking, or following
  • Harassing photos or videos
  • Inappropriate physical contact
  • Unwelcome sexual attention and comments
  • Advocating or encouraging any of the above behaviour.

If you notice any of the above behaviour taking place at the event, or if someone has made you feel unsafe or unwelcome, please report it to the Organiser’s Office. Our management team will come and talk to you discreetly and will investigate the matter. We will then take any further action we deem appropriate that is within our control. We would also welcome exhibitors’ support in taking further steps against any of their team members that have been found to be behaving inappropriately.

Thank you for your cooperation.
