Who can attend?
The RWM is a trade fair, therefore it is not open to members of the general public. The show is specific to traders.
You must be aged 18 years or over. (Please note that staff reserve the right to revoke or refuse entry to the event based on failure to meet age restrictions or provide appropriate I.D/proof of industry)
You are eligible to attend if you are 18+ and have buying and purchasing responsibilities or control spend. You will also qualify for entry if you are planning to open a business (in the next 12 months).
How can I Register for the show?

I am a Student, am I able to attend the show?
Students of Undergraduate level and above (individuals and groups over the age of 18 years) on relevant courses of study are welcome to attend the show, but will not be permitted to trade.
Students will be asked to show an NUS Identity card or equivalent student identity as well as photographic I.D displaying DOB.
Please register via the normal registration process, ensuring to select yourself as a student.
Can I bring children to the show?
Unfortunately due to the nature of the event, persons under the age of 18 years will not be permitted to attend the event. Apologies for any inconvenience experienced.
Is the show free to attend?
Entry is free to all trade visitors (or those looking to open a new business in the next 12 months) who register in advance. Entry on the day without pre-registration or a badge is £30.00.
When will I receive my entry badge?
Post: If you have opted to have your entry badge posted out to you, your entry badge will arrive within the two week run up the show open. However, if you do not receive your entry badge by post you can still print a copy as it is attached in your confirmation email (this will have been received on completion of registration to attend the show).
Email: If you opted to go green you can print your e-badge at the end of registration, or from the confirmation email once registration is complete. If you are unable to print your ticket, don’t worry – just show us your confirmation email at the registration desk on arrival to the show.
Can I edit my registration details?
If you wish to edit your registration details, please go to your confirmation email where there is an option to 'edit details'.
NB: The option of having your entry badge posted cannot be changed in the 2 week run up to the show open days, as badges will have already been posted.
Is my show registration date specific?
Registration for the show is non-date specific. Once you have registered and have printed your ticket you are able to attend the show on any of the show open days and as many times as you wish.
Where does my visitor ticket allow me access to?
Your ticket allows you access to the whole show unless stated otherwise. For example, if your badge states ‘Press’ you will have access to the show Press Lounge.
What if I have forgotten my ticket when I arrive at the show?
Please go to the Registration desks and they will print your ticket for you. Please have a form of ID with you as you may be asked for proof of company name as the show is only open to trade visitors. ID for this purpose can be in the form of a business card.
