Chelmsford City Showcase for Business

With the date now firm for the 2016 Chelmsford City Showcase for Business on Wednesday 16 November at Hylands Estate, Chelmsford, we are pleased to invite applications for stands in the Grand Pavilion.


If you wish to apply for a stand at the Showcase, please register your interest early as demand usually exceeds availability and certainly no later than the closing date of Friday 22 July 2016 by emailing


A plan of the layout (as 2015) can be viewed on the right and whilst you may request a particular stand we reserve the right to amend / re-allocate until final confirmation is issued.


Chelmsford City Council reserves the right to ensure a satisfactory mix of businesses and organisations exhibiting.


Stands will be allocated and confirmation sent to applicants as soon after 22 July as possible.


This confirmation form will need to be completed and returned to in order to secure your space. Due to anticipated high demand, return of the form should be as early as possible to guarantee the space. Stands not confirmed by 5 September will be released.


Stand space will be 2 metres wide by 1.5 metres deep. Electricity supply, 1.2 metre table, two chairs and a (blue) table cloth will be provided for each space booked if required. As last year, stands 12 through to 55 will have a blue, Velcro friendly screen behind the space. Perimeter stands 1 to 11 have no screen to the rear.


The cost of stands remains at last year’s price of £150.00 + VAT and non-profit organisations at a reduced rate of £75.00 +VAT.
