Exhibitor FAQ's

A:  Your space application is your request for booth space in the show – it is not a signed agreement. Applications are evaluated by our sales staff, and once it has been determined that your product/services best fit the show, we will extend an invitation and you will be sent a lease agreement.

A:  Glad to have you in the show! You may either send a check or you can pay with a credit card. PLEASE NOTE: ALL FUNDS are to be in US DOLLARS, and if you are paying with a credit card and we are unable to swipe your card, there is a 3% processing fee.

A:  Yes – all exhibits must be staffed during all hours open to the public (SEE LEASE AGREEMENT – you are contractually obligated to staff your booth at all times). REMEMBER, show attendees have purchased tickets with the expectation that you will be there to answer questions. If your booth isn’t staffed, you are missing the opportunity for potential business.

A:  The number of exhibitor credentials you receive is calculated based on booth space. If the amount you receive isn’t enough for your purposes, you may purchase additional multi or single day credentials for those working your booth. Our Exhibitor Guide explains the amount provided based on booth space, and you can find that information by following this link, locate the “Exhibitor Resources” area, then click on the “Click Here” link to open and review the Guide

A:  At the time of check-in, exhibitors for the Boat, Sport & Travel Show can pick up packets (which include credentials, parking passes and any additional information that pertains to your company) at the Champions Pavilion Show desk. We do not mail exhibitor credentials.

A:  We no longer have names on our credentials, so there is no need to provide a list of names of those who will be staffing your booth(s).
