Due to Covid and the enthusiasm of our members the show in October will run across the whole weekend. Visitors will be allowed access to the show from Saturday 2nd at noon.
We will be encouraging our members to arrive on Friday afternoon to set up their systems earlier this year as it is a two day show. Our new weekend 'VISITOR VIP' pass allows visitors the opportunity for the first time to enjoy mingling with exhibitors all weekend, and getting involved through helping and enjoying our evenings of food and entertainment with our experienced audiophiles.
The Show opens to the public at NOON on Saturday 2nd October.
We are anticipating a large turnout of visitors who can purchase either a 1 DAY, 2 DAY or a 'WEEKEND VIP PASS' (access to Friday and Saturday set up, Saturday and Sunday entrance and joining the yearly 'end of show' evening meal)

EXHIBITOR LIST AND SYSTEMS LINK
The member exhibitor list will be available nearer the show. Last years exhibitor list is live on the forum for members to check amend systems for this coming show.
YOUR EXHIBITOR ROOM
The rooms are all similar in size, acoustics and layout which makes it a level playing field when it comes to making your system sound the best.
WAM SHOW OCTOBER 2021 couldn’t be easier to find, its two minutes off the M1 Junction 24.
ARRIVING | UNLOADING AND PARKING
All exhibitors to set up on Friday afternoon 1st Oct or early Saturday morning 2nd Oct, all systems ready to go by Sat 2nd 12 Noon - NO EXCEPTIONS. Please arrive and park in the car park. Before unloading come into the reception area so that the organisers can make sure you get help if needed and that you have ample time to unload without damage to your equipment. Once you have unloaded, you will be shown where to park and leave your vehicle overnight.
SETTING UP ON FRI PM/SAT AM
Please bring your own trolly or flatbed as the hotel does not provide. The access is pretty flat and smooth with lifts to all floors.
The rooms will be available from 12 noon on Friday. 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 12 NOON SATURDAY
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, 'Room 101 invited me to help with his room today' etc. etc. will need to pay £15.
SATURDAY/SUNDAY - SHOW DAYS
Breakfast will be served from 7am until 9am. Tea, coffee and refreshments will be available all weekend including a Sunday roast.
All exhibitors must be ready for visitors at 9.45am.
SHOW CLOSING TIME
Breakdown starts at 5pm sharp on Sunday, no one may start packing up or moving kit until then as visitors are usually still listening to systems. Many people are usually available to help move equipment, please just ask. Traditionally the exhibitors stay for the annual 'curry night' so please let us know if you wish to join in the fun via the forum.
Any further questions about the show and popular topics can be found and discussed on the forum via the various threads.
Monday - Friday 9:00 - 17:30
Saturday 10:00 - 17:00
