Trade Exhibition

Exhibition Details

The Trade Exhibition is a significant and important part of the ACAud National Congress.

The 2022 Trade Exhibition will be located in the Exhibition Bays 23 & 24 in the Goldfields section of the Melbourne Convention & Exhibition Centre, directly next door to the main plenary, which is being held in Goldfields Theatre (immeidately next door to the trade exhibition).

Having the Trade Exhibition directly along side the main plenary means that the delegates will be able to have access to you (and you have access to the delegates) at all times of the day.

The Trade Exhibition floor plan has been designed to ensure good visibility and access to all stands.  Maximum traffic flow will be encouraged by the placement of the catering stations being located on the verandah immediately outside the Trade Exhibition.  All morning tea’s, lunches, afternoon teas and the Welcome Reception will be held in and around the Trade Exhibition.

The Organisers reserve the right to change the venue and duration if exceptional circumstances demand.

The Exhibitor is responsible for all personal injury or damage to property arising in connection with their display area, howsoever caused. The Exhibitor will indemnify the Organisers in respect of any claim and demands in respect thereof. The Exhibitor must take out adequate insurance in respect of all such claims.  The Exhibitor agrees to keep their exhibition booth fully manned and operational and will not commence to remove or change any of the area until after the exhibition closes.  In the event of cancellation, notification in writing should be sent to the Congress Secretariat.
