Exhibitor Manual

The mmc2019 Exhibitor Manual is now available here. In this you will find useful booking forms for stand extras, electrics, AV, accommodation, parking and much more.


There have been reports of companies contacting exhibitors masquerading as approved contractors.  In particular beware of bogus hotel booking sites with all the same information except the event logo. Please ensure when booking accommodation and any additional requirements for your stand that you use a provider that you know and trust.  Please visit the exhibitor manual where you will find a list of approved contractors.
