Qualifiers from the two revised shows must follow the process below on the Monday immediately following the show, between 8.30am and 4.30pm:

1.    Email Fosse Data systems via with details of entry as per normal entry form
2.    Fosse will email back confirming receipt of entry
3.    Exhibitor will then telephone Fosse with payment details
