About Exhibiting

The ethos behind the big show is about it being affordable and accessible to enable every woman in business to exhibit.

We've kept the stand costs to a minimum, (they start at only £15) but it's also about not having to spend loads of money on display banners, cards, leaflets and all of the paraphernalia often seen at business expos.

Just turning up and joining in is all that's needed.

There are no hidden charges for internet or electricity, although electric points are restricted.

Get Started

  • Scroll down and see which exhibition space you're interested in.  You're not actually confirming an exhibition space in at this stage, so that can all be changed later.
  • Click through on the 'Get Started' and there is a short form for you to fill in.
  • We can then have a chat, get the right booking details sent to you.  Your booking and payment will be confirmed by email and we will then start the onboarding process for your profile and promotion (depending on which package you've chosen).
  • The payment for the table doesn't include any refreshments, although we may add this as an optional extra closer to the event date.
