A major element of the HYDRO 2017 event will be the Technical Exhibition, running for three days alongside the conference sessions. The spacious, and purpose-built exhibition pavilion will be the main hub for business networking, between delegates and the industry representatives who will be exhibiting their supplies and services. Exhibitors typically comprise consultants, contractors, manufacturers, developers and professional associations. All lunch and refreshments will be served in the exhibition pavilion, with catering points arranged to ensure that delegates will move around the whole area frequently over the three days. Feedback from previous events indicates that delegates maximise the opportunities to circulate in the exhibition, and that valuable contacts are made, which are maintained after the event. The pavilion will remain open for a networking party after the conference sessions on Tuesday 10 October, to provide extra opportunities for business meetings in an informal atmosphere. Stands are sold in units of 6 m2, and multiple units can be combined to create larger displays. Standard or custom-built stands can be arranged. Sponsorship packages are available for various items associated with the event, and this can be a memorable way of bringing your company to the attention of the international delegates.
