Hyde Park: Details for Exhibitors

Your display

  • Please set up on the table number/s allocated to you (layout further down and table numbers)
  • If you can help to setup the tables, please arrive before 07:00 in order to help.
  • Expectation is that we are all finished with setup and preparations by 08:30 on Saturday
  • You are expected to stay at least until 18:00 on Saturday as this is a 1 day event.
  • There will be electricity for those who requested but please still bring an extra extension cord and multi-plug.
  • Should you be displaying sets, try to find a theme and fill your table with that. A table filled with predominantly Batman or Star Wars or Modular Buildings or Creator vehicles etc. Try to avoid a a random selection like 1 Star Wars spaceship, 1 City Building, a Scooby Doo set and a Friends car all on one table.
  • If you are bringing MOC’s, a central theme is great but not as necessary as with sets. They tend to have a life and story of their own and we encourage you to pull the public in and tell them more about your build. Take pride that you are the creator and show them the small hidden gems in your display.
  • This events run over just 1 day and is a supported event. We expect you to attend the full day unless previously discussed with the SC or in case of emergencies. Any absenteeism from events will impact on your support. This will have to assessed on a case by case basis.
