GENERAL BOOTH QUESTIONS
Booth amenities: You can supply your own booth items, but our excellent supplier is DIAMOND RENTAL who can supply practically everything. To order contact Sharon at 801.222.9311 or at firstname.lastname@example.org, or fax your exhibitor packet order form which you'll receive in the mail. Commonly ordered items include electrical, draped tables, chairs, carpet, etc. Click here to download the exhibitor packet in pdf form.
Booth design rules: We are fortunate in our state to not have a lot of regulations. All booth amenities must be within the alotted space (nothing in the isles) unless pre-approved. Anything deemed unsafe in the opinion of the expo organizer or fire marshal (such as tipping hazards) will be required to change. The provided drape rods will support normal banners but in general are not to be used as booth support. Balloons may be securely tied to your booth, but may not be handed out.
Set up day: Tuesday, March 5th, anytime between 8 a.m. & 8 p.m. Check in at the desk near the loading dock (north end) for exhibitor badges, etc. Row "N" may be called for a scheduled time. Loading and unloading only in back lot. During expo, please park in any of the main lots north and/or west of the UCCU Center.
Food handlers permit questions: If you're giving away food or food samples of any kind, you may need to go to the Health Departments and get a food handlers permit (151 S. University, Provo or 801.851.7000 for information). Pre-packaged food (Tootsie Rolls, etc) do not need anything, but if you're not sure, please call this Health Department number.
Take down: Anytime after 5 p.m. (to 10 p.m.) on Thursday. No early take downs please.
We have purchased wireless internet which will be available for everyone free of charge. Please ask for details at set-up.
TICKETS AND PASSES
Each exhibitor will receive a minimum of 20 general Expo tickets which include lunch and keynotes. You may have larger amount of tickets upon request. You will also have a chance to have customized e-mailable tickets made for you as well.
We welcome giveaways from all exhibitors wishing to do so with just a few guidelines. This is a good opportunity for a little added promotion at the show. Minimum price of the giveaway must be $100. Limit one giveaway per day. The Expo guide that will be handed out at the front door will include a list of all companies and thier prizes. We will do an overhead announcement when it is time and the giveaways may also be taped and shown (slightly tape-delayed) on the overhead screens. If you have a giveaway you'd like to include contact Roxanne at 801.368.7118.
