from the show website:
The rooms will be available from 12 noon on Saturday. If by chance they are not cleaned in time then please place equipment in the corridor outside the rooms. Plenty of help will be available as usual and there are easy access points front and rear of the hotel, fire door access with one level staircase to rear and lift through main doors to first floor.
ALL SYSTEMS SHOULD BE TESTED AND READY FOR VISITORS AT 9.30AM SUNDAY – SHOW OPENS AT 10AM
RULES ABOUT TICKET DODGERS | ROOM HELPERS
Each year the excuses and stories get more far fetched with people trying to get in for free so now we have very clear rules.
If you bring a helper to set up your gear and will exhibit with you all weekend and stays in the same room, that's fine. However, people saying at the door on Sunday, 'Room 101 invited me to help with his room today' etc. etc. will need to pay £15.
