2022 Exhibitor News and Information

Dear Exhibitors,

 For questions, use the email on the Contact Us page.

Hello,

Thank you for your interest in exhibiting at our show.

A few thoughts:

  • The third floor (lobby level) exhibitor rooms are perpetually full. Someone must give up their room for it to open. We have 40 or 50 vendors who have been waiting many years to get a third-floor room.
  • Second and first floors are available. They have less foot traffic than the third floor.
  • 201-250 rooms are $60 show fee + $93 per night plus taxes paid to the Sheraton.
  • 101-150 rooms are $50 show fee + $93 per night plus taxes paid to the Sheraton.
  • There may be a few single tables in the Versailles ballroom, The dealers down there are always looking for more tables, so don’t hold your breath
  • Send the contract in with your check to get the process started
  • We will start out with a $50 room, and I will upgrade you if I can
  • We will contact you by phone when we are positive, we can get you in, to make sure we are both happy with the arrangement
  • We will not cash your check until we get you in the show

Thanks,

Roy, Faye, and Darrell
