Special conditions:

Visitors are not permitted to distribute promotional material on the floor. If you see someone doing this, please warn them or let us know as soon as possible.

You may not pack up your display until 5:00. No exceptions please.


WIFI is free in the building.


Prize drawings:

  • We recommend offering a prize drawing. It helps visitors to stop at your stand and encourage conversation and it also helps attract more visitors to the event.

  • If you would like to offer a prize drawing just send us an e-mail with the description text exactly as you would like it to read on the web page. Please keep it as short as possible, 1 or 2 lines. We will post it on the web page and on the floor plan/events sheet we hand out during the expo.

  • Prize drawings must be conducted at your table and you are responsible for delivering the prize to the customer. The best way is to print some small registration slips with name, address phone etc.. Have the visitors fill them out and drop them into a box. At the end of the day draw the winners and contact them directly after the event.

  • Notification: There are so many prize drawings occurring at the expos now that we can no longer handle making announcements over the intercom, so we ask you to please contact your winners directly.


Help us spread the word:

Expat-Expo is a grass-roots event and we have taken a very different approach to marketing by offering a very affordable exhibitor fees and in return our exhibitors must work hard to inform their customers of the event. We are all relying on you to contact your clients and let them know about Expat-Expo, without this community spirit we simply couldn't exist. Now is the perfect time to send out a quick email and mention Expat-Expo and your participation to all of your business associates, friends and family.


Name tags:

We do not supply name tags. Please bring your own.



About a month before the expo we will send you 50 postcard size flyers and 2 A4 posters. If you need more just let us know and we will send them to you.

Have a suggestion?

We try to think of everything, but if you have an idea that you would like to share with us, we are very interested in your thoughts! Please feel free to contact us.
