DTI Station Information
We would love you to join us this summer. We’re passionate about seeing young people meet Jesus and fearlessly follow Him, believing that nothing is impossible with God. We call the main exhibition area The Station. The aim is to equip our delegates with a wide range of resources and opportunities. We’re expecting a total of up to 5000 people this summer and we hope The Station will be a popular place to be. Dreaming the Impossible is aimed at 12-18 year olds and will be taking place at Staffordshire showground.
In this pack, you’ll be able to look at the different exhibiting and advertising options available as well our Terms and Conditions.
We hope to see you in the summer!
What is the Station?
The Station is a central hub at DTI for charities and organisations to come and exhibit. The Station aims to be a place where young people can come and be equipped with resources and information that will help them passionately pursue Jesus back home after DTI.
How much space will I have for my exhibit?
There are two exhibit sizes that we offer:
3x2 metre pitch or 6x2 metre pitch
Of course if you need more space you are welcome to book multiple pitches.
What will be included in my pitch
Each pitch will be given a trestle table, and access to a 13 amp socket.
If you don’t require any of these, please email us at email@example.com to let us know and we can arrange for your pitch to be left clear.
How much does it cost to exhibit?
We have a set price for each exhibit space, however if your organisation has charity status you will receive a 50% discount on the price. To receive the charity discount you will need to include your charity number on your application form.

What else is included in the exhibit fee?

Kettles, irons or electrical items generating heat are not to be used without prior written agreement from us.
The use of sound and video equipment is permitted. However, The Station host determines whether or not it is too loud or unsuitable. Please ensure you have familiarised yourself with licensing regulations and have appropriate licenses for any audio/visual content on your stand. We cannot provide additional storage space for your exhibition stand. If you require space for storage, please incorporate this into your booking and stand design. Your entire stand and storage must fit completely within the space you have booked. Please note we cannot be responsible for deliveries of stock or equipment.
Security and Insurance
Exhibitors are required to have their own Public Liability Insurance. We cannot be held responsible for any damage, the or loss of stock or equipment. It is your organisation’s responsibility to ensure all team have personal effects cover. We make every effort to ensure that The Station is locked outside of opening hours, however we suggest that expensive items (eg laptops) are removed whilst the stand is not in use. Exhibitors are required to perform daily safety checks before The Station opens to delegates.
Accommodation and Meals
Exhibitor accommodation is not provided and all team must make their own provision. Most exhibitors choose to camp but you can stay onsite if you wish. Unless otherwise indicated, exhibitor team will be camped with other exhibitors and team at DTI. Please note exhibitors DO NOT have meals provided and will need to make their own arrangements for this. Please ensure that your team are aware of what will and won’t be provided. There are food vans on site and supermarkets a short drive away.
We expect all exhibitors to behave within the spirit of the event. Your team should be kind and considerate towards delegates and when taking the opportunity to inform them of products or services, must respect the right of individuals to hold differing views or opinions.
You may not sell, sub-let, advertise or share your stand with another organisation. Exhibitors in breach of this will be asked to leave the event with no refund and may be excluded from future Dreaming the Impossible events. You must have an exhibitor on your stand at all times when The Station is open.
All merchandise should be a resource to our delegates and/or directly support your charitable trust, not simply for profit. It must also be in line with the EA basis of faith. Please contact us if you have any questions. We especially ask that you don’t give out or sell anything that could be used to cause damage to persons or property.
We are careful not to abuse our position of influence by using our events as marketing tools. Either for our own ministry, or the ministry of others so we do not allow exhibitors to hand out material from anywhere other than their stand. This includes distributing material in the aisles, on café tables or anywhere outside The Station. Fly posting around the site is prohibited.
Filming and Photography
Please let us know if you are planning on doing any filming or photography at the event, on your stand in The Station venue and/or out and about at the event. We have a number of media teams on site at each event so it’s really important that we know who is filming at any one time. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if this applies to you and your organisation.
Exhibitors must abide by all of the terms in this document, and we draw particular attention to the following rules.
Absolutely no proselytising or sectarian propaganda is permitted on site. We ask this of delegates and exhibitors alike and allow no exceptions.
A formal statement of our beliefs is laid out in the statement of faith on the Vineyard Churches website. We require that all exhibitors are both sympathetic to this basis and keep all of their on site activity in line with them. All exhibitor team members must sign and agree to our code of conduct, volunteer policy and team rules which will be sent out after you have completed our application form on our website. The emphasis of The Station is to support delegates in seeking out information and resources that are of interest to them in a relaxed but vibrant setting. Aggressive sales pitches in The Station will not be tolerated.
The Station is not a forum for teaching or biblical instruction. We have a structured teaching programme which is delivered through the main meetings and an extensive seminar programme.
Once payment is received, your advert will be placed in our programme.
