Setup and Tear Down
Setup is Sunday afternoon, 2:30 p.m. - 4:30 p.m.. Spaces are disbursed on a first come, first served basis. Booths may left up through the end of the conference, Wednesday noon.
Vendor exhibition area is open Monday morning through the end of the conference day, normally til 5 p.m. The Exhibition Area will be open through the end of the conference, Wednesday noon. We suggest that you leave your booths intact, at least through the end of Tuesday's conference day.
Vendor giveaways are scheduled for Tuesday. Some vendors choose to station a "fish bowl" at their booth to collect member business cards; winners would be drawn from that bowl during the Dinner/Networking Event.
Conference materials, booths and crates will be received by Shanty Creek Resorts no more than two weeks prior to the conference start date, and must be shipped out by the exhibitor within two days of the departure date. Plan to have your shipment arrive 72 hours before setup on Sunday afternoon. Unless other arrangements are made, any items remaining after seven days of the conference will become the property of Shanty Creek Resorts. Shanty Creek reserves the right to refuse shipments and are not responsible for items that are lost, stolen or damaged.

Anyone shipping a crate over 500 pounds (not to exceed 1,000 pounds) will be charged a service fee of $100 per crate to have Shanty Creek Resorts’ staff move crate(s) from the receiving area to the exhibit area.
