Selected exhibitors at The 50+ Shows

WHY EXHIBIT? The 50+ Show is now a successfully proven concept: These are the largest over-50s shows in the UK - No other event gives such targeted access to this prosperous sector. This is largely a ‘recession-proof’ market, with guaranteed income and strong ongoing growth. The show is backed by a dedicated marketing campaign, including magazine, newspaper, internet advertising, direct email and direct mail advertising. Exhibitors are a major part of the event, offering visitors a huge range of products, services and information. In addition, each show includes a popular B-2-B networking reception for all exhibitors. The 50+ Show is a ‘blue-chip’ national show, with a local flavour.

All of The 50+ Shows are staged indoors. So, whatever the weather (rain, hail, snow, gales) The 50+ Show will go on...


EXHIBITOR COMMENTS “Once again, The 50+ Show was packed with interesting stands and activities. The increase in visitors

this year meant that our stand was always busy - so much so that we had people still there at closing time, and this is great for exhibitors. Next year should be fun! ” Manuela White, Abbeyfield

“Having experienced a variety of exhibition shows in the past, I was delighted with the tremendous visitor numbers and just as important, with the genuine interest in our product. A resounding success from start to finish...Highly recommended.” Robert Thomson, North America Travel Service

“We see The 50+ Show as an essential event on the exhibiting calendar.” Ian Mountford, Hanover Scotland Housing Association

“This was our first time at The 50+ Show and a great way to get yourself known in a market that is very demanding. The clients we have gained from this show surpass any other we have attended and we will certainly be back next year.” Steve Plummer, Holidays & Cruises For You

“Well promoted and organised show which lived up to our expectations.” Nina Torbett, NHS Health Scotland “The 50+ Show is the essential event for any charity or business wishing to target an old in age, young at heart audience.” David Tickner, The Civil Service Retirement Fellowship

“Wyldecrest Parks are happy to endorse The 50+ Show, which was very well organised, planned and executed. A good time was had by all.” James Kenneth, Wyldecrest Parks

The 50+ Show offers a unique opportunity to interact with the UK’s fastest-growing and most asset-rich population group. The over-50s control 80% of the UK’s wealth, have little or no debt and have huge spending power. The pot of assets and cash held by people over 50 is valued at over UK£175 billion. By 2031, the number of people aged 80 and over will rise from 2.2 million to 4.9 million. Net worth of visitors to our shows in 2012 was estimated at over £3bn. With fixed or index-linked incomes, the over-50s sector is largely recession-proof.





The 50+ Show is co-located with two other shows to make sure that a visitor’s day out is as full, enjoyable and useful as possible: The 50+ Travel Show and The Health Tourism Show. The Health Tourism Show brings together healthcare, medical services and health resorts from around the world and was first organised in 2008.

The 50+ Travel Show ( offers travel companies the opportunity to interact with a large audience of affluent 50+ travellers.

Health Tourism is a growing area and gives visitors the option to travel abroad to have their medical or health treatment, often saving over 50% on the fees that they would pay in the UK (and usually while having a nice holiday at the same time!)

A small selection of our travel-related exhibitors includes the following: Saga, Travelsphere, Voyages Jules Verne, Titan, Israel Tourism, Brightwater, Ramblers Holidays, Richardsons, Cruise and Maritime, Simply Groups, Mersey Ferries, Boundary Mill Stores, Cadbury World, Visit Hull, Isle of Wight and Warners Leisure Hotels.

The Exhibitor is responsible for and shall indemnify PRo (the Organiser) in respect of all claims (whether arising from personal injury or damage to property or otherwise) arising in connection with the erection and dismantling of the Exhibitor’s Stand and anything permitted, omitted or done thereon or therefrom during the period of the Exhibition or during the construction and dismantling periods arising directly or indirectly by the act, omission or neglect of activity or other article or thing of the Exhibitor or in the possession or use of the Exhibitor. The Organiser will take such precautions as it may consider appropriate for the proper running of the Exhibition, but will not at any time be responsible for the loss of, or damage to, or safety of any stand, exhibit, materials or other property of an Exhibitor or any other person under any circumstances. ALL Exhibitors must hold a Public Liability policy of insurance for negligence providing cover of at least £2,000,000 injury or damage, and this must be produced prior to the exhibition upon request. All Exhibitors are advised to effect their own insurance against all relevant risks. For massage/piercings/tattoos/make-up/any ‘hands-on’ interaction with any show visitor, each company must either have a special treatment licence (which must be applied for to the local authority at least 4 weeks before the show) or be exempt. All personnel administering medical treatments must be GMC registered. Any stand playing music must have its own PPL certificate, and must not annoy or inconvenience any other stand-holder or visitor. EXCLUSIONS OF LIABILITY The Exhibitor accepts all risks associated with the use of the exhibit space and environs. The Exhibitor shall not make any claim or demand or take any legal action, whatsoever, against PRo, the show sponsors or the facility in which the show is held, for any loss, damage or injury howsoever caused, to the Exhibitor, its officers, employees, agents or their property. INDEMNITY The Exhibitor agrees to indemnify and hold harmless PRo, show sponsors and the facility, their respective officers, agents and employees, against all claims, costs and charges of every kind resulting from their occupancy of the exhibit space or its environs, for personal injuries, death, property damages or any other damage sustained by the exhibitor or its officers, agents, employees or those for whom in law they are responsible, or PRo or a visitor to the show. EXHIBITOR’S PROPERTY All of the Exhibitor’s property at the show shall be at the sole risk of the Exhibitor and PRo assumes no responsibility for loss or damage thereto. EXHIBITION CONDUCT Exhibitors may only undertake exhibition activity within the boundaries of their own stand. Exhibitors found leafletting or canvassing outside their stand, or otherwise causing harassment to either visitors or other Exhibitors, will be removed from the exhibition hall, without recompense. BUILDING The Exhibitor is liable for any damage it may cause to the facility or to any property of PRo, its agents or any other exhibitor. The Exhibitor may not apply paint, lacquer, adhesive or other coatings to the facility or to the property of PRo, its agents or any other Exhibitor. Exhibitors are expressly forbidden to alter any aspect of the as-built stand without written permission from PRo. CONDITIONS OF PAYMENT Terms of payment are those stated below. Non-payment of any part of the Contract Price or of any other sums properly due from the Exhibitor to PRo will give PRo all or any of the following rights, which are in addition to

any other rights PRo may have: (a) To impose a surcharge of 8% above the Bank of England official dealing rate; (b) To recover additional costs including any legal costs incurred in the collection of monies due to PRo; (c) To prohibit the Exhibitor from erecting and/or occupying the space or stand allocated; (d) To use the allocated space in such a way as PRo thinks fit and to recover from the Exhibitor any expense in doing so; (e) To exercise a general lien on all the Exhibitor’s property in or about the Exhibition premises; (f) To treat the Contract as determined. PAYMENT TERMS The full stand cost will be invoiced on acceptance of application by PRo, with payment due within 30 days (or immediately on receipt if less than 60 days before the show opening date). Invoices for advertising in The 50+ Show Magazine or for emails to visitors are issued on acceptance of booking and are payable on receipt. PRo reserves the right to alter the rates charged for any aspect of participation at The 50+ Show. TERMINATION OF THE CONTRACT PRo may terminate this Contract if: The Exhibitor fails to observe or perform any of the Contract terms and conditions; The Exhibitor becomes bankrupt or makes an arrangement or compromise with his creditors or, being a Company, enters into liquidation whether compulsory or voluntary (save for the purposes of amalgamation and/or reconstruction) or suffers the appointment of a receiver, administrative receiver or administrator, or enters into or suffers any similar insolvency procedure under any jurisdiction. CANCELLATION BY EXHIBITOR The Exhibitor may give written notice of his intention to withdraw prior to 60 days before the show - which PRo in its discretion may permit by written confirmation - subject to the payment of 50% of the total contract price by the Exhibitor to PRo as consideration for release from the Contract. If the Exhibitor cancels the booking or bookings within 60 days of the show opening date, this will incur a fee of 100% of the total cost of the booking, payable immediately. Since withdrawal will cause PRo loss and further costs in reselling the stand, PRo is entitled to charge cancellation fees as set out above. These are intended purely to compensate PRo, and once paid, PRo will acknowledge that the exhibitor has no further liabilities to PRo in relation to this exhibition. REMOVAL OF EXHIBITS The Exhibitor agrees that no display will be dismantled or goods removed during the entire run of the show, but will remain intact until the end of the final closing hour of the last show day. The Exhibitor also agrees to remove its display and the equipment from the show site by the final move-out time limit, or in the event of failure to do so, the Exhibitor agrees to pay for such additional cost as may be incurred. CANCELLATION OR CURTAILMENT OF SHOW BY PRo In the event that the facility in which the show is to be held or is held is destroyed or becomes unavailable for occupancy, for reasons beyond the reasonable control of PRo and sponsors, or if for any reason PRo is unable to permit the exhibitor to occupy the facility or the space, or if the show is cancelled, postponed or curtailed for any reason, PRo and sponsors will not be responsible for any loss of business, loss of profits, damage or expense of whatever nature that the exhibitor may suffer. The reasons listed include, but are not limited to, such reasons as: casualty, explosion, fire, lightning, flood, weather, epidemic, earthquake or other event, acts of public enemies, riots or civil disturbances, strike, lockout or boycott or other force majeure event. Exhibitors are advised to take out appropriate insurance to cover all eventualities. Any refunds due will be paid minus an administrative deduction. GOVERNING LAW AND JURISDICTION, RIGHT OF REFUSAL This contract shall be governed and construed in accordance with the laws of England and the parties agree to submit to the non-exclusive jurisdiction of the English courts. This contract is assignable by PRo to another company. PRo reserves the right to refuse any application.
