We do have a limit on the number of exhibitors ensuring that suppliers are afforded maximum return on investment. Exhibition stands are only open to NWUPC Ltd approved framework suppliers of goods and services. However, should the exhibitor bookings attract a high level of interest from a particular framework or category group area we may need to restrict the number of suppliers from that area to ensure balance across the full range of our category groups.
