As we get asked to do lots of events a year I thought it might be helpful to create a pro-forma form which organisers can use to communicate to us answers to FAQ we have and collect entries where we don't organise the event ourselves. If anyone thinks of any other FAQ please comment below and we will amend this form.

Potential exhibitors are asked to exhibit at many different events, both domestically and internationally. Due to the popularity of LEGO models it is not possible to attend all shows to which invites are (gratefully) received. As part of the process for evaluating possible events some standard information is always required.
