Following feedback from retailers during 2016 and as part of our continual improvement, the retail space layout has been changed this year with the introduction of:
An additional shopping area located on the main entrance floor at the Echo Arena, The Piazza. This is a main route in and out of the Arena for visitors and promises to provide excellent foot flow throughout the show.
Additional space has been created in the downstairs Shopping Hall to accommodate more retailers this year.
Separate Retail Units with lockable doors as well as lockable storage space can be found on the upper floor (floor 2) as in previous years.
An additional restaurant will replace trade stand space previously provided on Floor 2.
We have also introduced a 'shopping only' ticket for Thursday 28th December which features the National Show Jumping Classes.
Arrangements for breakdown on 31st December will have some flexibility for those wanting to join in the New Years Eve celebration in the Arena.
With tickets already on sale for this year's show, as well as excellent Press and Online coverage, we anticipate to have a record year with visitor attendance across the duration of the show.
Please find below floor layouts for the available exhibition space for this year's show as well as an application form containing some pre-show information.
