Organisation of Exhibition

The VLDB Exhibition will be held in the Lomond Suite at the rear of the main entrance hall of the EICC. This area will be the location for delegate lunches and tea and coffee breaks to encourage delegate circulation around the exhibits. (The talks will take place in the Pentland Suite on the upper levels.)

The Exhibition is intended to provide a forum for software vendors and developers, industrial solution providers, and publishers. The audience of conference delegates, which will be a worldwide audience in excess of 500 delegates, will be augmented by local industrial and commercial visitors attending on both a daily and full conference basis.

A CAD plan of the current layout of the Exhibition space, indicating provisional location of stands, is provided here. [Please note that there is no guarantee that the final position of the stands will be as per this plan, though every effort will be made to ensure that is the case, subject to fire and safety regulations.]

Details on costs of stands, facilities and equipment provided, and the terms and conditions of hire at the EICC can be found here.

Potential exhibitors who are also interested in providing sponsorship for the conference in general, or for specific events or facilities can find further details on the Sponsorship page
