Hi there


This looks good. 


Couple of things: 



Conditions - setup:  "from 14:00"  should it not read that setup should be
complete by 14:00  OR  setup "from 07:00 - 14:00"



I think there should be an extra colour for workers / LOC at the conference
to allow access to the committee room or the alternative to have them wear
something like a t-shirt to id them. This was very useful at AfricaGIS.
Then people also know who they can contact or ask if they have questions.

Exhibitor's registration

For logistical reasons all Registrations relating to Exhibitors will be
handled separately from all the other delegates.

Exhibitors are not to register their "Free Registration "on the website.
Once exhibitors have sent their completed Exhibition Form to Magda ,I will
forward the invoice. Upon receipt of payment I will obtain the necessary
registration details by means of the registration form. I will register the
"Free Registration" on behalf of the Exhibitor and inform him/her
accordingly via email. 


>From past experience we anticipate some enquiries/queries  and herewith
list the procedure to be followed:


1)       Customised Exhibition Stand: 

Exhibitors can correspond directly with Beulah Henning from Oasys on
. She will have the necessary designing done and the Exhibitor will pay the
difference of the cost of the customised 3x3 Shell Scheme Structure (R2
372.32 plus VAT ) and the new amount directly to Oasys.

2)       Fascia Name :

                Should the Exhibitor wish to have different font ,logo etc
the cost will range between R200 and R800 depending on logo etc. This will
be done in the same manner as the customised stand.

3)       Exhibitor would like to attend workshops/technical tours but  "Free
Registration" includes no workshops :

Subject to availability we will invoice the Exhibitor for the difference
between "Full Registration with workshops" and "Full Registration only " and
amend the Registration accordingly on receipt of payment. No option for
single workshops only.

4)       Exhibitor wants to bring additional  staff to man the stand:

Additional "Exhibitors Registration" can be bought for R1 950 -this covers
our real of lunches and teas Monday -Thursday and cocktail evening (R 958).

5)       Exhibitor would like to invite guests to exhibition :

        Day Visitor Exhibition Only passes can be bought for R500 per day;

6)       Exhibitor would like to invite special guest to Cocktail

Day Visitor pass for R500 will include Exhibition 18h00-23h00 and Cocktail
-no other day activities




Strict security measures at CTICC and logistical handling of registration
makes colour coded lanyards the viable option :


Colour 1 - Full Registration with Workshops;

Colour 2-  Full registration - No workshops

Colour 3 - Exhibitors only

Colour 4- Day Visitors - Exhibition area only



The above EXCLUDES all groups.
