The exhibitors’ area will be located in Watergarden Room A of the AmericanBank Center, adjacent to the main Council meeting room and refreshment areas. We will continue the wonderfully successful “Daily iPad Give-away” during Council. Attendees will be encouraged to visit each booth and have a card stamped by exhibitors in order to be eligible to enter the drawing. Please bring a sticker, stamp or other unique way of marking cards for each person.
The exhibit area will contain 62 booths, 24 of which will be premium booths at a cost of $280 each. The remaining 38 booths will be available at $200 for commercial enterprises and $140 for non-profit and/or charitable organizations. Booths will be assigned on a first-come, first-served basis, but you will have the opportunity to select your preferred location during registration.
Each booth will be a standard 10’ by 10’ draped exhibit booth. The background drape will measure 8’ high, and the side drapery will be 3’ high. Each booth will be equipped with one 6’ draped table and two chairs. A 7” by 44” standard single line booth identification sign will be provided. Charges for additional tables and chairs, and other equipment will be addressed in the exhibitor packet that will be provided in January by Convention and Expo Management Services, LLC (CEMS). CEMS can be contacted at: (956)702-4926 ext. 2 or email@example.com.
