This Operations Manual is here to help you organise your stand.

Whatever your plans for your stand, please take time to have a look over the Compulsory and Optional Forms as this will summarise what information you need to send to whom, by which date. This list is very important, as some external suppliers will add on surcharges for late orders.

If you have any queries, please do not hesitate to contact the Ops team on  


We look forward to working with you towards a successful Materials & Finishes Show 2024!




Katie and Jess work closely as a team to give you any advice or support you need to make organising your stand as simple and effective as possible.  This will cover questions on Health & Safety, your Shell Scheme, the Venue, Build Up etc. They are also responsible for Health and Safety, managing the official contractors, liaising with the venue and organising the infrastructure that goes into creating the whole environment on-site at the event.  Hopefully you can find the information you need in other sections of this manual but if not please contact them. If they don’t know the answer, they will know someone who does!


Ranju & Maya are always on hand to talk about your stand or sponsorship requirements, or if you want an update on how sales are progressing – which brands are about to join us or if you need any information outside operational elements. Do email or call them with any questions or if you would like to talk about your participation.

Zoe, Millie and Rosie form our ACE marketing team for MAFS. Do contact them to talk through your plans for MAFS and how you are working to drive attendance to your stand. They are all full of ideas on how best to maximise your ROI from joining the line-up at MAFS. Share with them your product launches and PR stories, your marketing plans linked to the show, special events you are creating for September. If you have any problems accessing your exhibitor hub, updating your exhibitor profile, finding your unique registration link these are the contact details you need.
