Exhibitor Information

Mountain America Expo Center (South Towne) in Sandy, Utah

All exhibitor information is listed below, 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 the 2019 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 (wired or wireless) is available solely through the Mountain America Expo Center. Cost is $60/day per device. Call 385.468.2260 to order internet or order online here. Presenters may also need to arrange internet for presentations.


Electricity is available through the show supplier Modern Expo (above). Please see the exhibitor packet (page 10). Pre-ordered electrical is around $95.

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.

Parking (map) and trailer parking

Parking is usually pretty good (and free) at the Mountain American Center. For set-up days you may use the back lot. Limited weekend-long back lot passes available for $20. Please ask about availability at the check-in desk on set-up day about these. Other parking options are shown here on this parking map. Exhibitors can always use the main front or north lot, although trailer parking is only allowed in the back or north lot. See map.


You may ship any way you'd like, but we have an excellent shipping partner in InXpress. Click here to lean more. They are very reliable and have the best rates.

Once delivered to Salt Lake City, fees for handling your materials can be expensive. See our material handling notes below.

Material Handling

Advanced shipping and/or material handling can be coordinated through Modern Expo Services. Please see the above mentioned Exhibitor Packet for rates and instructions. Please pre-check your costs so you are aware of the charges.

Booth Signs and Displays

If you need booth ideas and/or printing, we have a great Pinners partner in Signs.com. 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.

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.

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 400 items with you to setup Thursday morning, and we’ll take care of the rest.

If you'd like to participate, please contact Darienne (801.822.1333) or e-mail her here.

Food and Temporary Food Permit Questions

The Mountain America Center 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 the Mountain America Center, 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 requires a Utah State Temporary Sales Tax form filled out for those selling merchandise or services. Please  fill out this form and return it to specialevent@utah.gov or fax the application to 801.297.6359. For any questions contact the Special Events Unit for a temporary license at (801) 297-6303 or at 1-800-662-4335, ext. 6303
