Frequently Asked Questions

Please be in touch with any questions you have that are not covered on this page.

For Exhibitors

  • I’m travelling from interstate to exhibit at the conference – can I have my materials sent to the conference venue before I arrive in Drysdale?

  • The FoG is not able to accept deliveries of exhibitor materials prior to the Expo.

  • Are any of my meals included?

  • The Exhibitor registration does not include meals. There are several cafes locally where take-away food can be ordered.

  • When can I set up my exhibit?

  • Display tables can be set up from ; Saturday 9.00 pm to 11.00 pm. FoG opens to the public on Saturday and Sunday at 11am until 4 pm. Exhibitors will be sent more detailed information about the specific processes for set up as the Festival nears.

  • When can I pack up my exhibit?

  • We request that all exhibits are packed up on the Sunday after the public depart at 4.00 pm.

  • Do I need to bring my own table for my exhibit?

Yes. Exhibitors must provide their own standard portable tables each no longer than 2 metres to facilitate Covid-Safe distancing between sites. Site fees will be charged at $175 per site. NB: We are unable to supply tables in 2022.

  • Do I need to bring my own chair for my exhibit?

  • It is preferable to bring your own seating as an exhibitor.

  • Do I need to bring my own lighting for my exhibit?

  • If your exhibit requires lighting, please bring it along but it should be battery powered.

  • Is parking included in my exhibitor registration? Where can I park?

  • Car parking is available in nearby car parks. The venue's car park will be used for Disabled Parking on the day, and is therefore not available for exhibitors.

  • Refunds. What happens if I have registered as an exhibitor but can no longer attend the FoG?

  • Please let us know in writing as soon as possible either by email or fax. The FoG is run by a not-for-profit organisation and it must cover all costs associated with the FoG. Cancellation fees will be handled by negotiation with the FoG Committee and in line with our Terms and Conditions.

Financial Support

  • Will the FoG provide financial support for exhibitors? Can the FoG sponsor exhibitors?

  • The Festival of Glass is a not-for-profit organization and therefore is unable to provide financial assistance to individuals who cannot afford the charges (registration fee, airfare and accommodation costs) that may be incurred in attending our Festival. We can only provide financial support for delegates if we receive sponsorship or specific grant-aid for specific delegates.

Presenters for workshops

  • Can the FoG print copies of the notes and handouts I want to give to the people that attend my session?

  • The FoG is unable to print notes, slides, readings or handouts for presenters to distribute in their sessions. We recommend that presenters bring along approximately 20-30 copies of the materials they wish to distribute. If this is not enough, we suggest taking down contact details of people and sending electronic copies after the FOG.
