Guide to GAMBICA Support for Trade Fairs

GAMBICA makes it easy for you to access the growth opportunities of exporting.  We organise pavilions at major international exhibitions, providing a clear focal point at these events for UK laboratory technology.  Our use of the 'GREAT' branding not only provides highly visible, instant recognition of the group, but also underlines the quality of your products.

Cost-effective space & construction package
A higher quality stand than organisers’ shell scheme with much higher group visibility and an inclusive furniture/electricity package

Best possible group location & liaison with Organisers
We have excellent relations with our show organisers and liaise closely with them on all aspects of the group participation particularly the group location. We also assist group participants in accessing organiser marketing & publicity opportunities, services & regulations.

High quality stand construction with strong group identification and quality inclusive furniture, cleaning & lighting/electricity package
Via our appointed stand builders we provide assistance with stand layout, ordering furnishings & additional stand services such as AV.  Our stand builders are also able to provide graphic production and installation at very competitive rates

Recommended group freight services, and travel/hotel agents for the larger events
We provide recommended agents with whom we have worked extensively.  Other agents are available and use of ours is not compulsory but they can always provide a competitive quote.

GAMBICA Information & Hospitality Stand & On Site Services
Provision of business (incl wifi access), hospitality & meeting facilities during the event which depends on group size and event but, as a minimum, always includes:

  • Practical assistance by dedicated GAMBICA personnel throughout the build-up, duration and breakdown of event
  • A sign-post to the group participants, other exhibiting GAMBICA members & promotion of our members & the UK laboratory industry as a whole
  • A Guide to the Group participants: web based, and printed version circulated at the event
  • Inclusion on GAMBICA promotional video & stand graphics
  • Provision of hot/cold refreshments & informal meeting area
  • Market information, briefing meetings and introductions to key Consul & Embassy Commercial staff.

Access to Trade Access Programme (TAP) grant
For events where TAP funding has been agreed, we guide our group participants through the process: advising on eligibility criteria, assisting with completion of documents and processing and liaising with DIT on approval of the application. After the event we submit the claim, assist in the reporting back of Export Wins and make payment of the grants.

All of which mean an extremely cost-effective & resource friendly, participation at the key events for our industry.

 

GAMBICA MEMBER VISITOR PACKAGE

With constrained budgets, it may not be possible to exhibit at all the events at which you might wish to have a presence.  In addition to the above 'full' exhibiting options, for some of our key events we now offer a Visiting Member Package.  The Package offer will vary according to event, and availability and full details will be announced in the run-up to the applicable fair.
