The Show does NOT supply electrical services. If you require electrical power, please make your arrangements directly with Freeman by using the order form in the exhibitor area of our website. Once ordered, they will provide power in the form of a single receptacle. You should bring a power bar for power distribution within your booth.
The amount of electricity you use can be calculated by adding together the wattage of all light bulbs used and all other appliances you may install. Please note that the electrician will also go through this procedure for each booth. Booths are on circuit breakers that will trip if they are overloaded.
It is less expensive to order your electrical orders in advance than at the show.
Please read and understand these regulations. Your display will be inspected at the show.

The EY Centre, in accordance with City of Ottawa bylaws, requires that all decorations and material for display are flame-proofed. This law does not apply to your products. The primary concern is with vertical-hanging fabrics. An inspector will be visiting every booth on set-up day to conduct fire tests on all display materials. All tested material that holds a flame for more than two seconds is deemed to have failed.
You should test all your materials before you arrive for set-up. Hold a flame to a sample of the material for 12 seconds; if it burns for more than 2 seconds after you remove the flame, it is not acceptable. To have your material flame-proofed in advance, please check the Fireproofing or Textile Finishers section of your Yellow Pages. Please take the time to read over the following Fire Regulations. The law prohibits the show from opening until all violations are corrected and the regulations strictly followed.
