Thank you for your interest in being a vendor for this year's Annual Conference Expo. We are excited to re-open our expo to ministries, non-profits and commercial vendors this year in our new location, the Buena Vista Palace Hotel in Orlando, FL.
We have a beautiful, carpeted expo space for you this year and some new ways you can get involved and direct even more traffic to your booth! The expo space will be conveniently located near the main meeting spaces, and on the route between hotel rooms and meeting spaces. You are sure to get lots of visitors this year!
Booths: Each BOOTH will include back (8’) and side (3’) rail drapes, a 6’ skirted table, 2 chairs, and 1 waste basket, in a 10’x10’ dimension. Exhibitor may only set up equipment, displays, etc., within this 10’x10’ space.
Shipping: Shipments will be sent directly to drayage services provided by the exhibit services company. Contact Melissa Cooper for information on drayage services.
Electrical and Audiovisual services: Electricity may be provided on a first-come, first-served basis, at an additional fee. Please make this request at registration as it may not be possible to honor it at a later time.
Set up, Exhibit Hours and Dismantle: Exhibitor agrees to utilize ONLY the setup window for setup, have an attendant at the booth during all Expo hours, and remove all display materials promptly at the takedown time.

Want to guarantee you'll get the most traffic during the expo this year? We're "gamifying" the Expo this year, inviting districts to compete in a Disney-themed scavenger hunt-type game throughout our expo booths. For just a few extra dollars, you can be a key location on the map that they must visit to best represent their district! Details to come ...
