Q: Where do I pick up my Entry Passes?
A: There will be an information desk at the venue on Friday 13. Collect them there. We have independent staff managing the ticket office to enter the Festival. If you or your staff are not wearing your badges – you WILL HAVE TO PAY TO GET IN on festival days.
Q: What is my Stand Number?
- A1: Your stand number will be reflected on your entry passes and you will also be given a map of the venue.
- A2: No, We can’t change your stand – AT ALL – we have had the site plan approved by municipal authorities. This is set in stone.
Q: Where can I get the Lokinwi Magazine?
A: It will be on sale at the venue.
Q: Do I get a Complimentary Magazine copy?
A: If you have written an article or paid for an advert – you will get a complimentary copy at the festival
Q: Will the magazine be on sale elsewhere after the festival ?
A: Yes it will – at independent stores around SA
Q: Where will in find my tables and chairs?
A: They will be stacked outside the exhibition hall
Q: Will your staff look after my stall if I can’t be there?
A: No – Our staff will manage the event itself. Please make sure your stall is manned at all times – Even if you are a speaker – you will have to leave someone in charge of your stall.
Q: Can I invite my mom/family/friend to attend for free?
A: This is a professional expo rather than a market and has cost the organiser a bomb. Help us to make our money back instead. We have been asked for countless freebies by many people. Although we HAVE obliged – often, a R100 entry fee is not much. Please help us make this festival a great success and we will continue to run them – Our dates are already set for next year in both Jhb and CT.
Q: Will we have to decorate our own stands?
A: Definitely – You will have a shell scheme with your name on a facia board and a stand number. I know it sounds petty to ask you NOT TO COLOUR OUTSIDE THE LINES, but the health and safety approval was really tough and expensive to get. They will be monitoring each stand – Please do not place any display goodies outside your designated area.
Q: What will happen if it rains?
A: Lokinwi is taking place inside a commercial exhibition centre – it does not matter if it rains.
Q: Will there be parking?
A: There are six hundred parking bays – We are asking the exhibitors to park their cars across the road at the marked parking so there can be more space for festival visitors – After off loading your stuff – of course.
Q: Where are the loading bays to bring my stuff into the exhibition centre?
- A1: Before the festival you will receive a map to show you where to bring your vehicles in to off-load your stuff. We are still busy drawing it and will mail it to you soon.
- A2: There will also be directional signage as you approach the venue.
Q: Can I bring my stuff and begin setting up on Thursday or before ten am on Friday?
A: Again this is a health and safety issue that is not controlled by us but by officialdom… Scan Display are building the professional shell schemes on Thursday and will be signed off by Health and Safety officer at 10 am on Friday. Please can we adhere to this.
Q: Where can I get directions to the venue?
A: Click here for directions.
