3pm – 9pm - BCFA Members Mini Pop Up Exhibition
This year the BCFA are offering a new opportunity to exhibit at a mini pop up exhibition in the Monte Carlo Suite prior to the networking event. Members will be provided with a table and chairs and an opportunity to bring along samples, brochures and a pop-up banner. This is a chance for members to invite clients and talk about 2020 opportunities and showcase latest products. The BCFA will promote the pop-up exhibition but the emphasis will be for members to invite their clients to meet with them. We will supply refreshments for members and clients.
If your invited guests are staying for the networking event, we MUST receive guest information. If they are only staying for the mini exhibition, we do not require any guest information, but they will have to leave before 6pm.
The set up will be from 1.30pm and if you if you wish to ‘break down’ before the networking event, this must be done between 5.30pm and 6pm.
Cost: £140 + VAT for a space (we have 12 spaces available). Please note that you MUST purchase a minimum of 4 tickets for the networking event to access a space at the mini pop-up exhibition.
