Water Restrictions Effective from the 1st of January 2007, Melbourne is currently in Stage 3A Water Restrictions.
The only approved way to fill spa/spas is with recycled water pumped in from a water carrier. This water must be removed at the end of the show, pumped back into a water carrier. All documentation to verify that the water is recycled needs to be presented to the Melbourne Convention & Exhibition Centre prior to move in. Also we strongly recommend you advertise that the water you are using on your stand is recycled.
Should the restriction be amended to Stage 2 closer to the show, exhibitors will then be able to apply for a permit from South East Water for approval to fill the Spas.
Application permit forms are on the following website www.southeastwater.com.au only if the Stage 2 water restrictions are in force.
Please remember under no circumstances do we allow for pools to be filled with water at any of our Home Shows.
This also applies to Landscapers and Garden exhibits. Water restrictions do apply and no water may be used unless it is recycled water.
Water & Waste Connection Cold Water and waste systems are provided with outlets in primary floor pits. It is the responsibility of the exhibitor to arrange connection from the service pit to equipment. If you require the services of a licensed plumber, please contact F Wood & Son on 03 9459 6628 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Or, to place an order please complete the EVENT PLUMBING ORDER FORM located within Supplier Forms on the website. Any person shall not carry out plumbing connections and disconnections for water and waste other than a Melbourne Convention & Exhibition Centre approved, licensed plumber.
If a hose connection is required, exhibitors must provide a 15mm (½”) pressure hose (domestic garden hoses are not permitted) and fittings. A female BSP fitting is required for connection to pit drains. To place an order, complete the UTILITY SERVICES FORM or contact Exhibitor Services at the Melbourne Convention & Exhibition Centre on 03 9235 8110 for further details.
