Your stand will require lighting and may require power. Additional lighting helps to highlight special features within your stand area. All lighting must be 2.2 metres above the floor level and any variations must have prior approval of the Venue. High powered lights such as floods or spots must not be placed within 500mm of flammable material. All portable light fittings must have a Certificate of Suitability or a Certificate of Approval from Australian or New Zealand Electrical Safety Regulators. If unsure, please contact Harry the Hirer on tel 03 9429 8688
All electrical equipment entering the Venue must comply with the Work Health and Safety Act 2011 and Australian Standards. This Act affects all electrical equipment used in the workplace, including equipment brought into the Venue by contractors or third parties. The outward sign of compliance with the Act will be the electrical test tag compliant with AS/NZS 3760:2003. The Venue reserves the right to remove or replace any electrical equipment not complying with the Act. Power cords which are detachable such as IEC leads, extension leads, and power boards are separate items and need to be tested independently from the equipment they are supplied with.
The Melbourne Convention & Exhibition Convention Centre (MCEC) is not carpeted therefore you are responsible for providing your own flooring. All stands with raised floors require a bevelled edge. All raised floors, steps and ramps within exhibits must comply with the relevant sections of the Building Code of Australia. Any raised floor sections must be clearly distinguishable from areas of the surrounding floor space.
All raised floors with a height of less than 115mm are not regarded as a step, and these floors will require a suitable and clearly distinguishable ramp from the main exhibition floor level or surrounding platform to the raised section. The ramp must be of a gradient no less than 1 to 3 and be contained within the contracted space. Ramps may not protrude into the nominated aisle way, so must be included in the stand space. The only exception to this requirement is for ramping on 32mm raised flooring constructed from one (1) metre modular floor sections, where an allowance of up to 100mm intrusion into the aisle will be acceptable and the 1 to 3 gradient will be maintained.
All raised floors with a height greater than 115mm but less than 190mm from the main exhibition floor level or surrounding platform will be regarded as a step and generally will not require a ramp. However, an approved stair nosing must be installed as per requirements for steps in public places. The raised floor sections or ramps must not contain sharp or dangerous edges and must not cause a trip hazard. Disabled access to the stand must be provided.
- All floor space only stands are required to provide a back wall, with the exception of island stands.
- All walls must be built to a height of 2.4 metres.
- If your walls and/or displays are to exceed 2.4 metres (the standard Pre-Built Stand wall height), consent must first be obtained in writing from the Organiser. Note: The maximum permitted height of any wall is 3 metres.
- If the wall height exceeds 2.4 metres, the back of your wall adjacent to the adjoining PBS Exhibitor, must be appropriately dressed.
- If your stand does not adjoin another PBS Exhibitor, all walls must be appropriately dressed.
Signs, banners and similar materials may not be nailed, stapled, hung or attached to the ceilings, walls, windows, sprinkler systems or any other surface of the Venue, except by permission of the Venue. Damage resulting from installation will be a direct charge to the Exhibitor.
