What happens after I have signed up to exhibit at the show?

After signing up you will be contacted by our marketing team, who will explain a range of opportunities to help you maximise your exposure pre-show and on-site, provide you with a link to the exhibitor manual and the exhibitor zone.

Am I able to share stand space with a partner?

Yes, if this is your intention please notify the sales team to ensure the floorplan is accurate.

Where can I find a floorplan for the upcoming show?

For the most up to date floorplan please contact the sales team. 

How do I register my stand personnel?

Register your team for badges via the CircData microsite. You should receive your login details in an email from CircData shortly after your stand is confirmed.

What is the difference between an exhibitor badge and a delegate badge?

Exhibitor badges allow access to the show floor during build-up/break-down and early hours. Guest passes allow access to the exposition floor on show days and during published show times only. Both passes allow access to seminars and expo for all 2 days.

They can either collect from registration upon arrival or you can collect them all and keep on your stand.

How do I invite my customers?

How can I become a media partner for the event?

The marketing team would love to hear from you.

What is the exhibitor zone (ezone)?

The ezone is an online portal which lets you update your online listing on our website, including logo, contact details and press releases. You will be sent your login details by the marketing team.

How do I update my contact information on your website?

To update any part of your online listing, login to the ezone with your username and password.

What pre-show and on-site marketing opportunities are available?

Ensure that you have generated leads before the show even starts: research shows that most visitors decide which stands to visit well in advance of arriving at the show. We’ve done the hard work for you and put together a range of marketing materials to ensure that your stand is on everyone’s ‘must-see’ list (and they won’t cost you a thing). To find out more please contact the marketing team.

How many of my company logos do you require?

You must send in 2 logos: one jpeg and one eps which will be used across our promotions.

How do I download a show logo?

Show logos can be sent to you by our marketing team. Request them through the marketing materials form online.

How do I access the media list for the show?

The media list will be compiled and sent out by Laura Bazile. For more information please contact her on l.bazile@closerstillmedia.com

What makes a perfect press pack?

Press packs should include a relevant press release, background on your company and good, appropriate, captioned photography. It is important to bear in mind that journalists will be interested in news stories, so brochures and other sales materials alone are not suitable. Ideally all the information should be contained in a clearly labelled folder, CD or USB.

When and where should I leave press packs?

Bring 50 press packs to the Press Office on the afternoon of build-up or before the show opens on the first day.


Have I done everything you need?          

We do not hold all of your orders here at CloserStill Media, please contact the necessary contractor to clarify what you have/have not done. We can however advise whether you have completed your Health & Safety Declaration form.

Where do I order furniture and electrics for my stand?

You can do this via the Exhibitor Technical Manual which can be found through the Ezone.

What do I need to wear during the build-up of the show and the breakdown?

Data Centre World has a large quantity of Space Only stands, therefore similar to a building construction site, please ensure you wear closed toe shoes (preferably reinforced toe boots if possible) at the very least. Under no circumstances can flip-flops or pumps be worn. Long trousers are also advisable.

Can I change the colour of my carpet? (Shell Scheme stands)     

Yes, at an additional cost. Please contact the official contractor GES. Contact details can be found in the Checklist.

Do I get to keep the furniture from the contractor?         

No, this is a hire service. The furniture will be collected by the contractor once the show has closed on Day 2..

Where do I get a contractor pass?

From a member of Security at the access gates/doors upon arrival.

My colleagues are arriving on the open day, how do they get their exhibitor badge?        

They can either collect from registration upon arrival or you can collect them all and keep on your stand.

I have a pop-up stand to go within my shell scheme, what do you need?              

Please send a visual to Techops@closerstilmedia.com and devise a Risk Assessment. The team will be in touch with any comments.

I need to have something delivered to the venue, how do I go about this?           

Please refer to the venue/deliveries section of the exhibitor manual.

    UK tech trade body techUK has released a second Covid-19 survey investigating the effects of the pandemic on the nation's technology sector, building on an initial survey published last month that indicated the sector might be insulated from much of the impact.

    Over 100 technology organisations responded to the updated urvey - half of them small businesses with less than 50 employees. techUK counts 850 companies as members that collectively employ almost half of UK tech sector employees.

    Overall, the sector still seems cautiously optimistic that the most extreme economic effects of the outbreak can be avoided, with only 6 percent fearing a halt to trading in the short-term. Longer term, businesses are more uncertain, with 30 percent concerned about their ability to trade if restrictions are extended.
