EXTRA EXPOSURE:

While you’re here to attract business, don’t miss these opportunities...

BEVERAGE BREAKS: We are looking for exhibitors to help sponsor our beverage breaks at each location. In addition to signage and logo placement, the beverages will be placed next to your table to help drive more traffic to you! Please let me know if you’re interested in sponsoring one of the beverage breaks.

EBLASTS: Eblasts are a great way for distributors to see your company name on pre-show correspondence, or even while the show is underway. 

REGISTRATION SPONSOR: Want your name on the first thing distributors see when they walk in the door? A registration sponsorship is a great way to do just that. This sponsorship rate will get your name on the registration desk signage and an opportunity to have give-a-way space for your product samples on or near the registration table.

SET UP & UNLOADING:

Exhibitors will be provided with 8 foot shirted tables or 8 foot rack spaces depending on their respective registration selections. 

Exhibitors can set up before the show from 7:00am - 10:00am on Tuesday, May 3, 2022. Parking is free for GCPPA attendees.

If we are able to get into the ballroom on Monday night to setup, we can notify you via text. Sign up to receive this and other updates by texting GCPPA to 21000.

ELECTRIC & INTERNET:

Electricity is available for $75.

TEAR-DOWN & TRASH:

All vendors must dispose of their trash and any leftover materials in the garbage/trash receptacles. We will be charged a $250 clean-up fee for any trash left behind and will have to pass that cost along to you.

CLIENT LEADS:

Although we aren’t expecting many to attend, this is an end-buyer show nonetheless. Clients will receive a clipboard and lead sheet when they pick up their badge. The lead sheet lets them know what information they need to get about products they are interested in. Please help them to make sure they write down the info. they need for their distributor. Exhibitors will also have a few lead sheets where you can capture any "hot" leads. We'll collect these from you at the end of the show and get them to the appropriate distributor.

CODE OF CONDUCT:

All attendees should conduct themselves in a professional and courteous manner at all times.

Exhibitors will not hand out business cards or any literature to an end user with company information that could be followed back to the company. All business, including leads and sample requests, will be conducted through a distributor.

Exhibitors and distributors may not do anything detrimental to the success of the show or interfere with the business goals of any of the attendees.

At an end-user show, exhibitors may not display anything in their booth that includes net pricing information. All pricing must be coded or retail.

Exhibitors should be respectful of the relationship between the end-user and their distributor. Under no circumstance can exhibitors suggest an alternative distributor rep or business.

As a courtesy to show attendees, no exhibitor will be permitted to tear down early. This is especially important at end-user shows while distributors have their clients present.

Anyone found in violation of these rules will be subject to expulsion or suspension from GCPPA and the inability to attend future events.

SHIPPING:

Authorized packages or shipments can be shipped directly to the hotel. The hotel does charge a rate of $10-$150 per package depending on package size and weight. As an estimate expect to pay $10 for small packages 5lbs or less, and $150 for pallets. Exhibitors will be responsible for making their own shipping arrangements with the hotel, retrieving shipments from the facility, and will be responsible for payment to the hotel directly.
