  9. How can I find out how much energy I will use at my stand?
    Electric energy will be supplied in KVA units. In order to calculate the minimum required, the fraction of 0.1 kVA X m2 is used. For example, for a stand that measures 20 m²: 20 m²X 0.1 KVA = 20 KVA.
    This calculation is just enough to meet the basic lighting needs.
    We would ask you to check with the real electric energy requirement with the stand builder contracted, bearing in mind that this additional amount has to be requested and paid for before the assembly period.
  10. What is KVA?
    KVA (kilovolt-amperes) is the measurement used for electric energy consumption.
  11. Which services should I request and how do I pay for them?
    First off you should make sure that your contract includes all the compulsory services (see the items listed below). You should also check with your stand builder whether there is any need to request additional and/or complementary services.
    Don’t forget that the following items are compulsory:
    • Power outlet;
    • Minimum energy consumption;
    • Fire extinguisher;
    • Removal of assembly debris;
    After checking this, access the exhibitors’ portal with your login and password, on the ABAV Expo website www.abavexpo.com.br, where you will find the forms for requesting the surplus items.
