Space Only/ Raw Space Stand Regulations & Information



Space Only / Raw Space means no walls, no carpet, and no electricity, just a marked-out area on the floor.   


All Space Only exhibitors are responsible for their own stand design and construction, and for ensuring that they, or their contractor, has received a written ‘Permission to Build’ before arriving onsite.  


Make sure your contractor checks the location and orientation of your stand in relation to an up-to-date floorplan, and that they build within the given parameters. The thickness of walls must be calculated inside the outer dimensions of the stand. The Organisers will not be liable for any costs incurred to rectify mistakes or make adjustments onsite. Below are some considerations when planning your stand.

  • How many walls will be required?  An exhibitor’s Contract to Exhibit will indicate ‘one’, ‘two’, ‘three’ or ‘four’ open sides.  Three open sides indicate the need for one back wall, two open sides indicate the need for two walls etc.  
  • Space only exhibitors may not make use of walls provided by neighbouring stands that are built from the Organisers shell scheme.
  • What are the other requirements or issues that need to be taken into consideration, e.g., store area, reception desk, and kitchen or sink requirements, disposal of waste from sampling etc.
  • If services such as water and waste are being used, exhibitors should consider the use of a platform to avoid unsightly pipes and connections (which could also cause a trip hazard) from the service ducts.
  • What floor covering should you have?  If you have a kitchen area, carpet is not a suitable floor covering – the floor here should be washable.
  • How much lighting do you need?  Use spotlights to highlight particular products or graphics.
  • You may supply your own electrical fittings, provided that all pre-wiring is carried out before you arrive onsite. Whoever has done the wiring then needs to sign a certificate to the effect that the work has been done by qualified personnel and in accordance with all rules and regulations governing electrical installations. This certificate needs to be handed to the electrical contractor before power to the stand is made live.
  • When appointing a contractor, exhibitors should obtain guarantees that the stand will be finished and all litter and stand construction materials removed from the exhibition halls by 18:00 on Tuesday 21 June 2022.  After this time should be interior dressing only.


Proposed stand designs must be forwarded to Ms Kayleigh Williams at kayleigh.williams@montgomerygroup.com by Friday 29 April 2022. If you have appointed a stand contractor to build your stand, please complete the Contractor Nomination Form (found under Compulsory Forms) and we will liaise directly with them.

Basic guidelines For Socket Sizes and Usage
Listed below are examples of "typical" loadings for items plugged in to socket outlets:

500 watt sockets:             computers, TV’s, video’s, spotlights to 500W, refrigerators
1000 watt sockets:          domestic filter coffee machines, lighting up to 1000W
2000 watt sockets:          kettles**, machinery up to 2000W
3000 watt sockets:          hired coffee machines, machinery 2000W to 3000W

Note ** - these appliances are of varying power requirements dependent upon type or manufacturer. It is therefore essential that the reference tag or plate that is fitted to each appliance under law be read, the loading in watts or kW (kilo Watts = Watts x 1000) will be stated, and the appropriate size socket ordered. 

Deadline Date
It is essential that orders for electrics are received by the electrical contractor (Sunyau Expo Pte Ltd) no later than Tuesday 10 May 2022 so that the necessary mains may be ordered in sufficient time for them to be laid in the hall before general construction commences.  Orders received after the deadline will incur a 30% surcharge. Onsite orders may not be possible but if they are there will be a 50% surcharge. 

NB: Exhibitors who contract into the show after Tuesday 10 May will receive the early bird prices if orders are made prior to arriving onsite.

Enquiry Desk
During the build-up period, an enquiry desk will be located outside the Organisers Office to assist exhibitors with any electrical queries or problems. The desk will be manned from 0800-1800 hours daily.

Supply Timetable
Electricity will be energised to stands as quickly as possible during the build-up period, subject to satisfactory inspection and testing of installations.  Occasionally delays may occur because adjoining stands are not complete and ready for inspection.

Any exhibitor needing electricity for the running down of machinery or refrigeration equipment etc. when the exhibition closes at 1700hrs on Friday 24 June, must inform the Organiser’s Office of their requirements no later than 1700hrs the day before (Thursday 23 June), for this to be arranged in time.

Temporary Power
If you require a temporary power supply during the build-up period, you should order this direct with Sunyau Expo Pte Ltd.


Display/ Modular Stands

If you do not plan to construct a stand but utilise a “pop up” structure as a backdrop, all stand regulations still apply to your stand.  You are required to submit a Stand Plan, Risk Assessment and Method Statement.   


No carpet is provided for Space Only sites.  Appropriate floor covering e.g., carpet, non-slip, easily cleanable floor covering in food preparation areas.  Floorcovering can be ordered from Sunyau Expo Pte Lted using the Floorcovering Order Form. The deadline is Tuesday 10 May 2022 orders received after this date may incur a 30% surcharge.

Materials for Stand Fitting & Decoration 

There are strict regulations governing the materials used in the construction and decoration of stands and in the demonstration of products.   


All stands will be inspected during the build-up and the Organisers may remove any offending fittings or materials or close down a stand if it does not comply with fire regulations.  You should draw these requirements to the attention of your contractors. 

  • Decorative materials used for stand dressing must be flame proofed or purchased already treated by use of the appropriate chemical.
  • Artificial flowers and plants are highly flammable and give off toxic fumes and must not be used for stand dressing.
  • Gangways must be kept clear and free from exhibits, stand dressing, furniture etc. at all times during the open period of the exhibition. 
  • Offending items are liable without warning to be removed. No empty packing cases may be stored on, around or behind your stand, as this constitutes a fire hazard. 


Permission to Build

All Space Only exhibitors are required to submit copies of their stand drawings for approval to the Organisers ASAP but latest before Friday 29 April 2022.  These should be emailed to Ms Kayleigh Williams at kayleigh.williams@montgomerygroup.com.
