IHBC MarketPlace Stallholders acceptance policy

Stallholders will primarily be in some way associated with building conservation or the built environment. But also included will be products and services which may have an impact on the built and historic environment and its conservation.

The following will be accepted as Stallholders:

  • Companies producing products which are wholly traditional, or are widely established for appropriate use in conservation.
  • Amenity bodies and charities with a historic or built environment remit.
  • Consultancies with a primarily building conservation purpose.
  • Companies who have previously exhibited at the IHBC Annual School or advertised in Context.
The following may be accepted as Stallholders but will require a prior review of sales literature and websites for any reference to products, processes and techniques which are known to be unsuitable for conservation work. If there is any uncertainty, the advice of other relevant specialists will be taken and inclusion as Stallholders may be declined:
  • Companies which produce new non-traditional products and materials which may be considered acceptable and necessary for the conservation of a building.
  • Consultancies working outside the historic or built environment.
  • Amenity bodies and charities with a remit outside the historic or built environment.
Companies who produce multiple products, some of which may be considered suitable for historic building use and some unsuitable, may be asked to focus on the more suitable product during their involvement with the MarketPlace.

Notwithstanding the above the IHBC Enterprises reserves the right to decline admission of any company or organisation as a Stallholder.

The IHBC, including its trading arm IHBC Enterprises, cares about the data we seek from you, and gathers, manages and protects data in line with official guidance on statutory duties, further informed by assessments of our charitable objectives to help conservation and its practice.
