Free Trade & Exhibition Opportunities
Women’s Network Australia’s (WNA) Networking Lounge concept is one of our most popular signature services. It is in the Networking Lounge that valuable contacts are made, friendships are forged and trade between our Members ignites.
The ambience of WNA’s Networking Lounge is further enhanced through the availability to our Members of FREE Trade and Exhibition Tables (a fee of $130.00 is payable by visitors wanting to access this service). With the audience organised by WNA and Free Trade and Expo Tables available (WNA Members Only), it’s a PR dream come true!
Please note: WNA Members secure any available Trade and Expo Tables as part of the online booking process when purchasing tickets for our events.
Frequently asked questions:
Can I just arrive and set up a display?
Unfortunately the answer to this is no. Due to the popularity of this concept all tables are required to be pre-booked. You will need to do some forward planning in regards to our future events and those you wish to attend. Our site provides you with the facility to view all of our national forthcoming events.
I am a WNA Member but can’t attend. Can one of my staff run my Exhibition?
Our Trade and Exhibition Tables are Free to WNA Members only. To be fair to all it is a requirement that the Member is in attendance at any event for which they have secured a display. If you want to access our free Member services and can’t attend events yourself, you need to consider the merits of upgrading your membership to a Corporate level so other staff from your office can attend and wave the flag for your business when you are not able to attend the events yourself.
Can I book Exhibition space for the entire year?
To be fair to all our Members we only accept 3 consecutive bookings.
How do I book my Exhibition space?
You simply select the 'Trade Table' option when booking online to attend an event. If the option is not showing this indicates that all tables are fully booked for that particular event.
What does WNA provide me with?
All exhibitors are supplied with a trestle table (approx 1.5 metres in length X .8 metres in width) covered in white linen. From this base you can build your display.
Can I conduct a business card draw from my table?
Yes you can invite event attendees to enter competitions, draws etc. However, we take the privacy laws very seriously and promote ethical networking practices. So if you intend to use the email addresses or details from the business cards collected at the event, you will need to indicate this to all those entering your competition. You can also ask for the winner to be drawn at the end of the event when WNA prizes are also being drawn.
Can I hang my posters etc on walls?
Our events are held in hotels throughout Australia. WNA must adhere to the policy of nothing being placed on walls. However, you are welcome to bring free-standing signs and banners.
Can I sell products from my Trade and Exhibition Table?
Yes you certainly can and are encouraged to do so. Please also note that most guests will not have cash on them so for this to work well for you credit card facilities would enhance your sales.
What if I would prefer to demonstrate my services opposed to setting up a Table?
At WNA we take great pride in the fact that we work with our Members to maximise the results of their promotional activities. It's all been done at WNA events - hands-on massage, hair styling, makeup application, pianists, through to clowns juggling and operatic singers. So never shy away from discussing with us what you have in mind. We are open to the opportunities and wonderment of business.
Can I have access to power?
In function rooms at hotels there is always some access to power. However, you will need to arrive early to ensure you select a table which has close proximity to the available power. You will also need to supply your own extension cord, duct tape and double adapters.
Do I receive confirmation?
7 days prior to any WNA event at which you have secured a Trade and Exhibition Table you will receive an email confirming and reminding you about your booking.
What if I have changed my mind and wish to cancel?
You will need to call WNA Head Office on T: 1800 052 476 at least seven (7) working days prior to the event if you do not wish to proceed. Due to the popularity of the exhibition spaces there is often a waiting list and therefore, we need to give adequate time to the next person on the waiting list to prepare their display. If you do not give seven (7) working days notice you will be invoiced for the cancellation fee of $80.00.
Have more questions?
If you have any further questions regarding promotional activities or additional queries regarding Trade Display Tables at our events, please don't hesitate to call the WNA Marketing Team at head office on T: 1800 052 476.
