Information for exhibitors

The Wiveliscombe and 10 Parishes Showcase aims to make both the public and businesses locally aware of the many excellent products and services that abound within the 10 Parishes. It is a hybrid Business-to-Business and Business-to-Customer event, so incorporates networking, finding new business opportunities and selling to the public.

All local businesses are welcome to attend – entry is free – but to make an impact and promote your business, why not book a stand?

If you are a small business, why not join up with a complimentary local business and share?

The Showcase is being promoted by articles in the Somerset County Gazette and the Wivey Messenger, with the latter also containing a full colour leaflet. These leaflets will be made available to businesses throughout the 10 parishes and enlarged laminated poster versions and large banners will be hung at strategic locations. We are involving our own 10Radio, plus BBC Radio Somerset and Heart FM.

A brochure will be available at the Showcase listing exhibitors, with contact details and a short description.

We expect to accommodate 35 – 40 businesses in the sports hall and if we are oversubscribed, we will extend into the main hall.

Exhibition display areas will be marked out. Standard green stands measure approx 2.5m x 2m and will be supplied with a covered trestle table and access to electrics if needed. Premium stands are available. We encourage exhibitors to supply attractive backdrops to their stands, with all debris and back up brochures being stored out of sight.

Exhibition space is available to businesses from within the 10 Parishes area (plus existing sponsorship partners of the Business Group). 

Stands are priced from £35 – £200, according to stand size and position. Stands are available on a first come, first served basis.

Each exhibitor must carry public and employee liability insurance (and provide documentation to the Organiser showing that their policy covers the event).

The hall will be available from 8am – 6pm to allow for stand set up and take down.

We look forward to seeing you on the 26th April for a great day of making new contacts and networking!
