Exhibitor Information - Salt Lake City
All this information below will help you, but please feel free to call us anytime at 801.822.1333 with questions.
GENERAL BOOTH QUESTIONS
Booth amenities: You can supply your own booth items, but MODERN EXPO is our excellent supplier. Your booth is simply your space with black pipe and drape (8' back wall and 3' sides) and Modern can supply everything else except for internet connections (see below). Many commonly ordered items include draped tables, chairs, carpet and electricity. Click here to download an Exhibitor Packet from Modern Expo. You may bring in your own booth items as well.
BOOTH DESIGN RULES
We are fortunate in our state to not have a lot of set-up and design regulations. All booth amenities must be within the allotted space (nothing in the isles) unless pre-approved. Anything deemed unsafe in the opinion of the expo organizer (such as tipping hazards) will be required to change. We also ask that there be no solid side walls on your booth that block the view to your neighbors for the attendees that are walking down the isle. The provided drape rods will support normal banners but in general are not to be used as booth support. Helium balloons can be used, but only if they are attached securely to your booth. Please do not hand out helium balloons.
Advanced shipping is coordinated through Modern Expo Services. Please see the above mentioned Exhibitor Packet (pages 18-22) for rates and instructions.
SET-UP | TAKE-DOWN
Set-up is Thursday, November 2nd between 8 a.m. and 6 p.m. The South Towne Expo has good space for an open (come when you want) set-up. Drive-ins not allowed during set-up day (too full), but early set-up may be available. Call or e-mail for early drive in times.
Take-down is anytime after 7 p.m. (to 11 p.m.) on Saturday evening. No early take downs!
Parking is pretty good at South Towne. You may park in the back for loading and unloading days only. On show days please use the main front parking lots.
Please use your exhibitor promo code by handing it out to friend for free general admission tickets online. This includes admission but not classes. Tickets $7 at the door.
We will also give each exhibiting business a class punch card good for 2 classes each day of the show. You can use or pass around this card as you wish, and these are passes for 'stand-by'. Class passes above these two classes each day will need to be purchased.
You should have received a promo code for free general admission tickets, but you also can have a code for a 10% discount off of all types of tickets. If you have not received this please e-mail us . You will also receive a cash kick-back for your code being used (minimum 10 tickets).
Official hotels announced soon.
DOOR PRIZES AND GIVEAWAYS
We welcome giveaways from all exhibitors wishing to do so. This is a good opportunity for a little added promotion at the show. You may do basically any giveaway you'd like from your own booth, but if you would like us to help you promote it, the minimum value of the giveaway must be $100 and you are limited one major giveaway per day. We'll be sure to do an overhead announcement about the giveaway. If you'd like to participate, please contact Roxanne (801.361.8382) or e-mail us here.
FOOD and TEMPORARY FOOD PERMIT QUESTIONS
South Towne Expo does not allow giving away drinks, including water, at their shows. If you are dealing with any food items (candy bowls are okay) at the show, you'll need to apply with Utah Food Services, the contracted caterer for South Towne, to get permission. Click here to get their application to SELL or here to get their application to SAMPLE from your booth. When approved, you will also need to check with the Salt Lake County Health Department to find out if you need a temporary food handlers permit. Some foods do, some foods don't. For information, call (385) 468-3845. Even if you are a current food handler, you may need a temporary permit for the show. Prepackaged candy bowls are fine of course.
Internet (wired or wireless) is available solely through the South Towne Expo Center. Cost is $59/day per device. Call (385) 468-2229 to order internet. Presenters may also need to arrange internet for presentations.
We're excited at the Pinners Conference to do extensive marketing.

BOOTH IDEAS, PRINTING and PROMOTIONAL ITEMS
