If you have purchased a standard shell built booth, your space will include carpet flooring. Spacy only purchased booths are raw space, with no carpet included, should you wish to purchase flooring or change the inclusive flooring in your booth, this will need to be arranged with Exponet, via their OEK portal.
For safety reasons, all rigging overhead banners and signage will be completed by BCEC and must be pre-arranged with the Centre prior to the exhibition.
A quote can be arranged with the Exhibitor Services via the online exhibitor portal.
