Application Procedure

  • Please refer to the stand plan to select your preferred position within the fair. Then fill out the application form, having read all the terms and conditions below. If you are selected you will be informed shortly after the submission deadline, you will then be directed to make full payment via cheque or BACS. Please don’t send any payment before you have been allocated a stand. 

  • Please itemise all types of products on the application form. For example, if your main discipline is ceramics then I need to know if you are going to be selling cards and/or jewellery as well. You will only be able to exhibit & sell items listed on your application form so please be thorough.

  • The Landmark will start to allocate stands to successful applicants by the end of May 2022; however the online application form will remain open until September 2022. So, the sooner you apply, the better chance you will have of getting the stand you want.

  • A digital 'exhibitor pack' will be sent to all successful applicants at least 6 weeks prior to the events. This will accompany more information and advice. We are always happy to supply exhibitors with physical flyers too and printed posters on request until they run out for which you will need to arrange collection or ask for them to be posted to you.

  • You will also receive an 'on the door' pack when you arrive to set up your stand which will include exhibitor badges, a free wine ticket, an exhibitors questionnaire and information about catering, sales, tickets and further instructions. Your stand will be labelled with its number and the name you nominate in advance.

  • Please ensure you have read all of the terms and conditions before filling out the application form. 

We look forward to receiving your submission. Please don’t hesitate to contact Abigail should you require further information or have any questions.
