Are children allowed in the exhibition hall?

Yes. Parents will be asked to complete a disclaimer form at the registration desk and each child will be issued with their own badge. This will hold the contact details of a parent in case of emergency or if a child finds themselves separated from their group at any point. If a child becomes lost in the hall, a member of the NEC team (or exhibitor) can bring them along to the Organiser’s Office where a call will be made to the number stated on their badge. We would urge parents to be vigilant and always ensure the safety of their children, especially around any working machinery at the show.
