Exhibitor Catering

Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre has sole catering rights for food and beverage services within the venue. All food and beverage items consumed in the halls should be supplied by ADNEC appointed outlets only.

Food outlets serving light refreshments and snacks are located along the exhibition concourse areas while more options can be found in ADNEC Grandstand Food Court.

Exhibitors requiring stand catering should complete and return Form 14 - Stand Catering.

The use of external caterers is not permitted within the venue. However, if a 3rd party caterer is brought on site to provide catering a corkage fee will be charged by ADNEC and will need to be paid before service can begin or continue – this is calculated by the catering manager. Please contact ADNEC Catering at +971 (0)2 406 4210 or email

Exhibitor & Contractor Welfare

We all have a duty to help and support event industry professionals and here at Reed Exhibitions, the safety and wellbeing of everyone onsite is one of our top priorities.  Everyone has a role to play to look out and care for our colleagues and peers and we can all do this by taking the following steps:

  • Don’t request or plan for stand designs that can not be safely and comfortably constructed and dismantled during the published time available.
  • Provide sufficient amount of onsite crew to reduce long working hours
  • Ensure adequate breaks for staff
  • Everyone on site should have access to drinking water, catering facilities and rest rooms
  • Be kind.  Be considerate

Emergency Procedures

Evacuation or partial evacuation is on the advice of the Venue. Should an emergency occur that necessitates an evacuation, an announcement will be made over the PA system. Exit the building immediately via the nearest exit point and make your way on foot to your closest Assembly Point. Please refrain from using mobile phones at this time.

Whilst at the Assembly Point you will be kept informed of developments. When the emergency has ceased you will either be invited to return to the exhibition to resume normal business or advised to return the next day – in which case you will not be permitted to return to the exhibition to collect vehicles, bags, briefcases etc.


General security arrangements for the exhibition will be controlled by the organizers in conjunction with the local authorities in Abu Dhabi. Security personnel will patrol the exhibition halls in general, but their duties will not include special attention to individual stands.

Exhibitors should exercise due care and attention with regards to safety of their exhibits, valuable items and smaller exhibits, which may be easily stolen. If your displays are valuable and sensitive and you wish to hire security personnel to attend to your stand exclusively, whether for the open period and/or overnight then please complete and return Form 15 - Static Security Order. 

While the Organizers and the Venue will make all reasonable arrangements for security coverage, they are not responsible for any loss or damage, which may occur, and it will be the Exhibitor’s responsibility for the security of their stand, its exhibits and contents including personal property. Appropriate insurance coverage should be arranged.

Lost Property 

Any lost property should be handed in to the ADNEC Security Office located level 1 above Hall 7 by Car Park B. Items will be returned to the rightful owner upon presentation of reasonable proof of ownership.

Lost Property can be contacted via the Security Office on 02 406 4164 or 4158 (or internally via ext: 4164 / 4158)
