Exhibitor Information

South Towne Expo Center, Sandy, Utah


All this information below will help you, but please feel free to call us anytime at 801.822.1333 with questions.

Show supplier/ decorator - Modern Expo

You can supply your own booth items but we will have an excellent decorator/supplier available through Modern Expo. Your booth is simply your space with black piper and drape (8' back wall and 3' sides) and Modern can supply everything else except 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.
* Material handing fees are expensive. Be sure to know the costs before you ship or receive anything on site at the show.

Internet

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.

Booth Design Rules

We are fortunate in Utah to not have a lot of set-up and design regulations. Here are a few show rules:
* All booth amenities must be within the allotted space (nothing in the isles) unless pre-approved.
* Anything deemed unsafe in the opinion of the show organizer (such as tipping hazards) will be required to change.
* Solid side walls on your booth may not extend farther than halfway to the front of the booth. This is so we don't block the view to each other as visitors walk down the aisle. Some shows have designated "full wall" booth areas.
* 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.

Shipping

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 set-up (come when you want). Drive-ins not allowed during set-up day (too full), but early set-up may be available Wednesday afternoon. Call or e-mail for early set-up times.

Take-down is anytime after 7 p.m. (to 11 p.m.) on Saturday evening. No early take downs!

Booth Signs and Displays - Queen of Wraps

If you need booth ideas and/or printing, we have a great Pinners partner in Queen of Wraps . They have done a lot of work with Pinners and various exhibitors. They understand your goals for this show and you'll love working ideas with these guys.

Parking

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.

Class passes

We will 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. These are passes for the 'stand-by' line and do not include kits. Class passes above these two classes each day will need to be purchased.

Promo Codes

If you would like a custom promo code that you can give to friends and followers for 1/2 price general admission tickets online -or- 10% off all tickets, please request it here.

Hotels

Our partner hotel for 2017 is Coutyard - Marriott Sandy (10701 S Holiday Park Drive). Please call 801-571-3600 and ask for the Pinners Conference group rate or follow this booking link to book your room.

Giveaways & Swag

This is a great way to get exposure at VIP night. We will be having some fun activities for our attendees to earn raffle tickets by completing. We will be drawing raffle tickets and announcing the giveaways and winners towards the end of the party.

Contributing an item to the swag bag is an opportunity to get your brand and products even more exposure to this amazing audience (please no coupons/flyers). The Thursday before the show begins (after setup) we host a VIP party for our most loyal attendees, local bloggers and trendy influencers. Each attendee will receive a SWAG BAG that you can contribute to for free! You will need to bring 350 items with you to setup Thursday morning, and we’ll take care of the rest.

If you'd like to participate, please contact Delaney (801.822.1333) 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.

Tax Information

The state of Utah will bring around tax information at the show for those who are selling merchandise or services.
