All staff working on your stand must wear an Exhibitor name badge.

To enter the names you need to login to your Exhibitor profile, select "fair details", and complete all details - including name badges.

If you have any problems please email operations@xpo.co.nz

Please note; Exhibitor badges are not sent out prior to the Fair. On arrival at the Fair for build-up, please proceed to show information by the cafe to collect your badges. Please check them immediately and see us for any changes at the Show Info.

On arrival at the exhibition for build up, exhibitors should head to Show information by the cafe to collect your exhibitor security badges. Please check them immediately and we will amend / add badges as required.

It is imperative that exhibitors wear these passes at all times during build-up, breakdown and exhibition opening times to obtain access to the halls. For security reasons, those without passes will be refused entry.

Please ensure that your designers/contractors/builders all have badges to gain access to the Halls.

Vehicles are not permitted in the pavilions when carpet has been laid. If you have heavy equipment that needs to be brought in by forklift and need access before the carpet has been laid, please contact operations@xpo.co.nz prior to build-up.

Please remember to wear your Exhibitor Badge on Fair Days.

Please do not screw or nail any items to the panels. This would be considered damage and you would be charged for any damage to the panels.

Art hooks and Velcro can be used for attaching signage etc to your stand. These can be purchased from Exhibition Hire Services during build up. Please go to their desk located in the Main Foyer.

You can use a carrier of your choice or go with our recommended freight company Mondiale. Mondiale has access to the halls before exhibitors are permitted to shift in, so when you arrive on Friday morning, your product will be already on your stand. Contact details for Mondiale: Penny Haimona, 09 255 3317 or penny.haimona@mondiale.co.nz

We have been advised that exhibitors at our shows are again being targeted by FAIR Guide and EXPO Guide for "Free" Directory Listings on their websites.
Unfortunately, this issue comes up time and again when our exhibitors are targeted through questionable tactics by online Exhibition Directories, such as the two highlighted here.

Before you sign up for ANY online listing directory, please ensure you read the fine print very carefully.
Please be aware that the fine print of their contracts includes a charge of approx US$1500 - US$1700 per year for a period of 3 years.
Please note that we are not associated with and do not endorse those proprietors or others, or that website. We suggest that you make your own decisions and, if appropriate, obtain independent legal advice, before you respond to or deal with those proprietors or others, or that website.
You may also find further information about Fairguide & ExpoGuide at;


Access with security passes is permitted 1 hour prior to the Fair opening. You will not be able to gain access to the Halls without your exhibitor badge.

Exhibitors will be required to vacate the pavilions 5 minutes after the close of each show day.

If you need extra time to prepare your stand you will need to let 'Show Info' know so security can be advised.

If you have deleted / lost the email that was sent to you with your login details use the Exhibitor "forgot password" form at http://www.giftfairs.co.nz/exhibitor-dashboard/forgot_password. If you still can not access your login, please email operations@xpo.co.nz
