A. Your exhibitor name badge is your ticket to the convention and expo floor, as well as all of the convention general sessions, except for Opening Sessions 1A, 1B and 1C. Tickets for additional events, such as concerts or special entertainment, can be purchased through online registration.

Q. Will there be exhibitor parking?

A. Although most exhibitor hotels – both outside of the city and downtown – provide general parking for personal vehicles, exhibitors not staying in exhibitor hotels or who need to drive into the city from nearby locations can purchase parking passes to downtown garages. These exhibitor parking passes are available at an additional cost and can be purchased through the online registration system in August. Parking permits will be sold on a first come, first serve basis.

Q. What is included in the booth space?

A. Booth space in 10′x10′ increments. The booth registration fee includes pipe and drape and an exhibitor sign hung on the back of the booth. Booths inside the Convention & Expo space will have concrete floors. Booths in the hallways outside the main show will have carpeted floors. Tables, chairs, carpet, electricity and other booth decorations can be ordered for additional cost through Fern Expo. An Exhibitor Kit will be available in January 2014 to help you make arrangements for your space.

Q. Can I choose my booth space location?

A. Due to the intensive nature of convention and expo planning, exhibitors are not able to choose their own booth locations. Exhibitors may submit a request for a specific booth number and can also request that their booth not be located near competitors or specific types of companies. These requests should be made during the booth reservation process.
