Technical Guide

These Regulations contain the relevant information for all aspects of participation in AFRICA AEROSPACE & DEFENCE, applicable to Exhibitors, their Contractors and Sub-contractors. They become part of the contractual agreement between an Exhibitor and the Organisers as soon as an Application to Exhibit has been accepted by the Organisers and the Exhibitor has been so advised. Please read all sections carefully.

Exhibitors are requested to advise their Contractors to study these Regulations, before providing quotations. If there is anything you do not understand, or further information is required, please contact the Organisers.

The Exhibition Regulations were correct at the time of posting on the website. Exhibitors will be advised of any subsequent amendments or alterations.

The Organisers will continue to make every effort to facilitate the access and work of all concerned. In return, a zero-tolerance policy with regards to vehicle access and parking regulations, the wearing of badges and individual protection, and compliance with hygiene, safety and security measures, will be scrupulously applied at the site during the build-up and exhibition and breakdown periods.

A scale of penalties will be applied in extreme cases of non-compliance with these obligations, ranging from badge withdrawal to the closure of the exhibitor’s stand after a warning has been issued.

AAD’s commitments as a responsible event organiser in terms of quality, respect of environmental conditions and the safety of persons and the site require us all to comply with these rules in every way.

It is the intention of the Organisers to apply the Regulations in a manner which will provide the greatest benefit to all Exhibitors, and we look forward to having your co-operation in making AFRICA AEROSPACE & DEFENCE 2024 an effective showcase for the aerospace and defence industry.
