Outdoor Exhibits (OE) such as outside broadcasting vehicles, demonstration trucks, generator equipment and satellite link equipment can be exhibited in the dedicated area of IBC. All displays in the OE area must have adequate provision for disabled access via the use of a hydraulic tail ramp, access platform etc. Should an OE vehicle not have an in-built solution, an alternative suitable level of access to the information shown inside the OE exhibit, needs to be provided.
All OE exhibitors, excluding outdoor vehicle displays with no build, must submit a Risk Assessment and a Method Statement together with a visual of the equipment and layout of intended display to Abraxys by 22 June, IBC’s appointed stand plan inspection agency. Any exhibitor who does not have a detailed stand plan and Risk Assessment that is approved by Abraxys prior to the event, will not be allowed to set up their stand onsite. Stand plan must be sent for approval via the Stand Plan Submission Form in the IBC Exhibitor Manual to obtain 'Permission to Build’ certificate. Alternatively, stand contractors are welcome to use own templates and submit the stand plans to Abraxys via email on email@example.com.
The stand plan approval is subject to the Stand Plan Inspection (SPI) fee which is part of your overall stand plan submission. The SPI fee of GBP 175 (+ 20% VAT) will be charged by Abraxys upon receipt of your stand plan submission (all OE stand designs, including straight repeat designs from previous years, will incur an inspection fee). For late stand plan submissions after 22 June, the SPI fee will increase to GBP 300 (+20% VAT). A ‘Permission to Build’ certificate will be emailed to you (or your contractor) once the plan submission process is complete. Payment of the SPI fee can be made via the secure Abraxys retail site.
