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 and clicking on the “Exhibitor Guide” button – https://renfroproductions.com/boat-rv-travel/exhibitor-resources/

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).

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.

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.

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/existing-exhibitors/

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/existing-exhibitors/

A:  You are welcome to have literature and product shipped to the Fairgrounds. PLEASE NOTE: There are certain times we can accept freight at the Fairgrounds.

A:  There is one “will call” area for the Indianapolis Boat, Sport & Travel Show, in the Champions Pavilion Show office, which is located inside the double door entrance on the north side of the Champions Pavilion. IMPORTANT: NO BOX OFFICES OR DOOR STAFF SERVE AS “WILL CALL” – guest passes and extra worker credentials cannot be left at box offices or with door staff.

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. You can find the hotel information by following this link https://renfroproductions.com/existing-exhibitors/ and click on the Hotel & Camping Info button.

A:  There are RV accommodations on the State Fairgrounds! You can find the pricing and procedures to secure your camp site by following this link https://renfroproductions.com/existing-exhibitors/ 

A: NEW REGULATIONS BEGINNING 2019: Exhibitors are not permitted to bring pets or live animals into the Show, with the exception of certified service animals, which wear the appropriate service vest. All service animals permitted into the Show are to be kept within the confines of the exhibitor’s booth.

COVID-19 Update

For 68 consecutive years, Renfro Productions has been committed to providing our show attendees with the experience of excellence that has become synonymous with our name.

Due to the world-wide pandemic, the State of Indiana has imposed restrictions on events. As a result of those restrictions and constraints specific to Indiana State Fairgrounds, it has become evidently clear our show would not be able to perform and meet the exceedingly high standards we set for each Renfro Production. For this reason, we have come to the difficult decision to postpone the following shows for the first time in our company’s history:

  • The 2021 Ford Indianapolis Boat, Sport & Travel Show
  • The Indiana Motorcycle & Powersports Expo
  • The 2021 Indiana Deer, Turkey & Waterfowl Expo

Look for our return with the Midwest’s beloved and long-standing events in 2022! The Ford Indianapolis Boat, Sport & Travel Show and the Indiana Motorcycle & Powersport Expo, will arrive at the Indiana State Fairgrounds on February 18, 2022, and the Indiana Deer, Turkey, & Waterfowl Expo will arrive on February 24, 2022.

Rest assured, the health and safety of ALL are our top priority

Stay Tuned – Renfro Productions will be coming out with a special e-Reader edition of the Show Program, in support of our exhibitors.
