Assigned Spaces

• ALL exhibit spaces will be assigned and will be printed in the November news magazine.  You’ll receive your exhibit space assignment the day of the event. This publication serves as the program for the event and changes in exhibit locations CAN NOT BE MADE.  PLEASE be sure you set up your exhibit in the space you have been assigned.  The exhibit hall has been designed to ensure that every spot will receive high traffic all during the day.

• Your space includes access to wireless internet, a 6’ conference table and two chairs.  REMEMBER- we highly recommend using your space in an inviting and engaging manner to generate interest and great conversations.  If you will NOT need the table in your booth, please let me know prior to Monday, November 13th so the conference center staff can set up accordingly.  All spaces have access to standard power outlets in the floor.  You are responsible for extension cords and will be required to secure (cords, carpet) to the floor with GAFFER TAPE only (you provide) - Sinclair does not allow the use of duct tape.  Stand up banners are an excellent way to distinguish your space.

Additional people working the booth will be charged $30.00 each for a badge, lunch and parking pass.   Remember, only those who hold a full conference ticket, will have access to Breakfast, Lunch, and snacks during the day. Conference Tickets may be purchased by calling us at 937.229.0054.

• Boxed lunches consist of a sandwich, side, chips, dessert and soda or water.

Exhibit Break Down

NEW THIS YEAR!  The exhibit hall is where the party will be!  Door Prizes, the People’s Choice Awards and networking will give attendees a chance to spend time with you in your booth. It will wrap up at 5:00 PM so you are welcome to break down your exhibits then.
