Exhibitor FAQ's

  • Q:Q:

    I have submitted my space application – what happens now?

    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.

  • Q:Q:

    I’m now an Exhibitor – how do I pay for my booth space?

    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.

  • Q:Q:

    Do I need to staff my booth during all show hours?

    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.

  • Q:Q:

    How many exhibitor credentials do I get & may I purchase more?

    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 and clicking on the “Exhibitor Guide” button – https://renfroproductions.com/deer-turkey-waterfowl/exhibitor-resources/

  • Q:Q:

    How and where do I get my exhibitor credentials?

    A: At the time of check-in, exhibitors for the Indiana Deer, Turkey & Waterfowl Expo can pick up packets (which include credentials, parking passes and any additional information that pertains to your company) at the Expo Hall Show desk located in the East Lobby of the Expo Hall. We do not mail exhibitor credentials.

  • Q:Q:

    When do you need names for my 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).

  • Q:Q:

    I have a stock trailer. Is there free parking for trailers?

    A:  There is specific, designated parking for trailers. Empty and stock trailers have different parking area designations. The Show staff will tell you where those areas are when you check-in. It is free to park your trailer on grounds.

  • Q:Q:

    How many parking passes do I get & may I purchase extras?

    A: Each exhibitor will receive an allotted number of parking passes. The Fairgrounds give our show a set amount of passes to be distributed. Those who have the pass do not have to pay for parking – but if you have multiple workers, those that do not have a parking pass will have to pay the Fairgrounds fee to park. There are no additional parking passes to purchase. Check with Show Office staff once all exhibitors have checked in – there may be additional passes from exhibitors that didn’t need all that were allotted to them.

  • Q:Q:

    What are the setup hours for Exhibitors?

    A:  Setup hours are based on the location of your booth. The Exhibitor Resource Guide has exact times/days for each building. Follow this link and click on the “Exhibitor Guide” button https://renfroproductions.com/deer-turkey-waterfowl/exhibitor-resources/

  • Q:Q:

    Do we get electricity?

    A:  Yes. As part of your agreement, we provide each booth with one 500 watt outlet per 10’ of booth space at no extra charge to you. If you need additional amperage, you can contact the fairgrounds electrician, Ermco, to discuss your needs. The following link takes you to the exhibitor resources page on our website – just click on the “Electricity” button. https://renfroproductions.com/deer-turkey-waterfowl/exhibitor-resources/

  • Q:Q:

    Do we have access to WIFI as part of our agreement?

  • Q:Q:

    Are tables and chairs provided?

  • Q:Q:

    Do you have special hotel rates for exhibitors?

    A:  Absolutely! Each year we have several hotels in which there are block rates for our exhibitors and out of town guests who are planning to visit the show for more than one day.

    Can I bring my pet if I keep it in the booth with me?

All service animals permitted into the Show are to be kept within the confines of the exhibitor’s booth.
