AEV eGuide

We are delighted to annonce the summer 2017 edition of the eGuide has now been launched, and is available to download at

The eGuide can be downloaded either in its complete form, or via the following sub-sections – Catering, Connectivity, Electrics, Security and Stand Build.

This edition includes a completely new Sustainability section, which has been written by the cross-association Sustainability Working Group, made up of members from AEV, AEO and ESSA. The latest edition also features a new section covering bridging over gangways in the Stand Construction section, and many amendments and updates to existing sections on Rigging, Stand Plans and Medical Cover.

To coincide with the updates to the Rigging section, which aim to improve the safety of client’s own hoist & fix/third party rigging operations, the eGuide Committee has created two template rigging forms – hoist & fix/third party rigging order form (to be used by contractors placing orders for rigging points, with the intention of carrying out their own hoist & fix operation) and on-site hoist & fix/third party rigging sign-off form (to be submitted to the organiser by the competent person who has carried out the hoist & fix operation). These forms have been created in such a way that the venue/rigging company can brand them individually and they would be obtained from the venue concerned.

A huge thank you to the eGuide Committee for their dedication and hard work in getting this latest version of the eGuide ready for publication, and especially to the cross-association Sustainability Working Group for writing the important new Sustainability section.

If you have any queries or questions relating to the eGuide document, please contact AEV Manager, Kim Dance at or 01442 285811.
