Official Breakdown Letter


Wristbands will be issued by security at the loading bay and must be displayed by each staff member and sub-contractor for access. Exhibitors and sub-contractors will not gain access to the venue on Monday for breakdown if the company name and stand number is not known by breakdown staff.

For security and safety purposes no items will be allowed out of the venue until 18H00 on Sunday evening. Should an exhibitor remove any items or break down their stand prior to 18H00, the Organiser reserves the right to fine the exhibitor 10% of their contract to exhibit for every hour that the exhibitor’s stand is not manned and open to the public. The exhibitor shall pay this fine on demand (see Standard Terms signed on contract).

Porter services will be provided on Sunday evening from 18H00 to 22H00 as well as Monday, 27 May from 08H00 to 16H00. Read more.


Exhibitors are urged not to leave stands unattended during the breakdown period, as this is when goods are most vulnerable to theft. The Organisers will not be held responsible for theft or damages. Ensure that adequate security and insurance measures are in place.

After Sunday evening breakdown the venue will be locked at 22H00 and re-opened at 08H00 on Monday, 27 May 2019. Ensure that at least one representative from your company is on your stand after close of show on Sunday, 26 May at 18H00 as well as on Monday, 27 May at 08H00 before commencement of final breakdown to secure your possessions and begin packing.

Remove valuable items first - do not leave overnight - do not leave plasma screens on stands.

All stands must be cleared by 16H00 on Monday, 27 May 2019,, including all building rubble and material used in construction of stands. A penalty is levied should any rubble/material be left behind by an exhibitor.

Additional stand security can be ordered, such as an overnight security guard, by completing Form No. 4.

Any remaining items will be disposed of by the Organisers and exhibitors charged accordingly. The Organisers will not be held responsible for the safekeeping of any item left behind after the show.
