Gas-filled balloons must be adequately secured to the stand. Charges will be levied for any costs incurred for repairing damage to the air handling units within the halls due to gas-filled balloons being drawn into the units and for removing balloons from the roof structures.
Balloons must be positioned at a height no greater than 4m from the hall floor to the top of the balloon.
Balloons must hang only over your own stand.
A plan must be submitted to the organisers detailing location, height and method of attachment.
