You're welcome to share an exhibition space with another organisation and to share costs.

Please decide between yourselves who'll be the lead organisation. The lead organisation should book the space and be the contact for invoicing. After we've confirmed the booking with the lead organisation, you can let us know the name of the other organisation. You'll both have your own listing and profile on the Gathering exhibitors list.


Our exhibition display spaces are a great way to showcase your organisation. Organisations will be limited to a maximum of one exhibition space only, so please keep this in mind when making your booking.
