Trading Policy and Guidelines

TRADING POLICY

APPLICATIONS / ACCEPTANCE:  Submmission of application does not ensure allocation of a trade space. Show management reserves the right in its absolute discretion to reject an application for exhibition space, to reduce trade stand allocation, withdraw permission or close down an exhibition stand. We do not invite small toy or sweet stands or hot food vans.

PUBLICATIONS: Please note that it is Show Policy that traders may distribute publications ON THEIR OWN STAND ONLY. Traders who disregard this policy and leave their allocated space to hand out/sell publications will be asked to cease and be removed from our traders’ database if they do not adhere to this policy. If a Steward in charge has to speak to traders a second time the trader involved will be asked to leave the premises ASAP.

COLLECTIONS: Charities and other businesses attending the show may only collect for charity ON THEIR OWN STAND ONLY. The same rules as above apply to monetary collections.

SOCIAL MEDIA: The management of Fermanagh Farming Society Ltd would appreciate if those involved or attending the show did not send out images on social media unless authorised by the management the exhibitors or the businesses involved. We need to protect the exhibitors traders and volunteers who support our event.

LITTER: We pay litter pickers to clean the site after the show and they do a wonderful job, so we would appreciate your cooperation in not leaving litter behind as you go or putting fliers on vehicle windscreens etc. Please use the skips and bins provided onsite. Please help us hand back the site Clean & Tidy to Ulster Farmer Mart Ltd who so kindly loan us their facilities every year.

REFUSAL: The Society reserves the right to refuse any trade application or entry of exhibit/s without any further explanation. 

Catalogue Adverts

Please note we will send ONE email requesting a final proofed copy of catalogue advert to be received by the 30th June. It is the responsibility of the trader to provide it in time for inclusion in catalogue. We do not design adverts and will only use those ready for printer. A5 portrait style.

Please book early to save disappointment. Only fully completed forms with enclosed payment will be booked in, if an invoice is required then please forward the details including business purchase order number (if applicable) ASAP. Sorry credit is not available due to problems in past.

Data Protection: Under new regulations by submitting data you are permitting Fermanagh County Show to use your data for show office purposes only, your data will not be shared with any third parties. See policy.

ADMISSION PASSES AND PARKING: 4 Admission Tickets and 1 Vehicle Pass will be issued per £100 stand. Larger stands on pro rata basis. All admission tickets will be colllected at the gate. Extra tickets may be purchased from the show office for £8.  VEHICLE PASSES MUST BE DISPLAYED CLEARLY ON YOUR VEHICLE at all times in park. No additional Vehicle Passes can be issued due to limited parking. Please avail of the parking in Lackaboy Industrial Estate (BT74 4RL) served by three free shuttle buses direct to the Show. Please avoid entering or exiting the showgrounds in vehicles during opening hours as you are NOT guaranteed re-entry due to limited parking and health and safety regulations.

Outdoor Trade Stands - Please let us know if this includes a Mobile Unit or a Marquee and the full size, these can be put in place or be erected 6pm - 9pm Monday 3rd August, and 9am - 1pm on Tuesday 4th August. All vehicles must be removed to the allocated parking area by 1pm.

Indoor Trade Stands may be erected 1pm - 9pm Monday 3rd August, and 9am - 1pm on Tuesday 4th August. All vehicles must be removed to the allocated parking area by 1pm.

Any stands not occupied by 12pm on Tuesday will be reallocated. All stands must be disassembled and removed before 5pm on 5th August as the site is being used the following day. We would appreciate if drawing pins and any other sharp objects would be disposed of safely as these cause injury to the cattle’s feet. Trade exhibitors are responsible for disposing of all rubbish on and around their stand to the skips provided, flattening all cardboard boxes etc. If you do not remove all rubbish you will be omitted from next year’s mailing list.

 

A space will be reserved for each trade stand holder to park one vehicle off site in the yard if your vehicle is not a part of your trade stand. 

We run a successful trade show with 200 stands annually choosing quality stands and avoiding duplication where necessary, we are not a funfair so not interested in small toy or sweet stands.
