Admission

Reed Gift Fairs is a trade only event and admission is free upon validation of the necessary trade credentials (listed below) and completion of the registration process.

If you are a current GIC holder it will expire 31st December 2017 and you will need to re-register over the coming months to ensure you have access to all events in 2017. To find out more about changes to our registration process click here. If you wish to re-register now just use your current GIC number and click here.

For any new registrations or re-registrations we recommend you pre-register online prior to the fair to avoid the on-site queues. The organiser Reed Exhibitions reserves the right to refuse admission at their discretion.

BADGES

ACCOMPANYING GUESTS
Each registered visitor may bring ONE guest to assist on the day, except for the final day, when guests are not permitted. The guest does not need to complete a registration form, simply ask for a guest pass when you arrive at the fair. A new sticker is required for each day of the fair your guest attends.

Accompanying Guests must stay with you at all times and cannot place orders or purchase goods under any circumstance.

Please Note: As of 2018 we will be introducing a Buyers Guest Ticket. Guests will no longer attend for free and a charge of $50 per day will apply with tickets only available to purchase in person on the day by the registered buyer. In preparation for these new charges we recommend that all legitimate trade attendees register as a buyer with the required documentation to avoid any unnecessary costs.

CHILDREN & BABIES
As a business event Reed Gift Fairs discourages children under 14 attending the fair. Babies and toddlers (aged 0-2) are permitted if they are in a pram or carrying device at all times. Please complete an approval form at the Customer Service desk for all children and prams, and a sticker will be provided to be displayed at all times for security.

PHOTOGRAPHY
To protect the privacy and confidentiality of exhibitors and their products, no video or still photography from digital cameras or mobile phones is permitted.

NO CASH SALES
The sale and removal of product from within the fair is restricted to the final hour of the final day (2-3pm only). Removal of product prior to this time is not allowed without approval from the organisers.

CLOAKROOM
Items larger than a standard size briefcase are not allowed into the fair, however we do provide a complimentary cloakroom for secure storage of such items. All cloakrooms will close promptly at 6pm (3pm on the final day). Whilst all care is taken for your property, we do not accept responsibility for items left after this time.
