Many exhibitors give out samples of products for potential buyers to try. These are intended for genuine retail or hospitality buyers or users. Anyone found to be taking excessive samples from stands without engaging with the exhibitor or without the exhibitors express permission, may be asked to leave the event.

Samples may only be taken with the express permission of the stand holder or supplier concerned and are for the use of professional buyers when making professional buying decisions.

The organisers reserve the right to confiscate any sample they deem to have been acquired inappropriately or not for professional buying purposes.

Northern Restaurant & Bar takes place in a multi-purpose public venue, which hosts a variety of events during every week of every year. Therefore, the venue is as susceptible to any allergen as any other public place, and should be treated with precisely the same degree of caution.
