All sponsors have the option to secure an exhibitor booth, while available, via the online sponsorship application at no additional cost. As an exhibitor, you will have the opportunity to showcase your company’s products and services to an anticipated audience of 350 facilities professionals. The exhibit hall, with a maximum of 45 booths, provides an ideal venue for conference attendees to grab a cup of coffee and visit your booth. This is not a trade show – the limited size allows easy access for all.

If you choose to secure a booth, the company must plan to occupy the booth for the duration of the conference and provide staff in the booth during the hours of the Information Exchange. These hours will be posted ahead of the conference on the website. Booth location will be determined on a first come first serve basis, once sponsorship payment has been received.

Exhibitors, by the nature of their business, will engage the conference theme: Building Collaborative Communities – Navigating Challenges—Charting Innovations as expressed in the educational session tracks:

  • Planning
  • Design & Construction
  • Energy & Sustainability
  • Facilities Operations
  • Interdisciplinary

Booth Staff Registration (Optional) - New this Conference

A daily (Monday/Tuesday) Booth Staff registration is available for purchase to provide food and beverage during the day for booth staff. This option is only relevant if you bring staff to manage the booth who are NOT included in your sponsorship-level complimentary conference registrations. No outside food and beverage are allowed in the Exhibit Hall, therefore this option eliminates the need to exit the conference center. Booth staff registration includes: Exhibitor Staff name badge, Monday/Tuesday breakfast and lunch, breaks, and Monday Premier Reception. It does not include entry to educational sessions.

Exhibitor Service Contractor

The official service decorator contractor for the conference Exhibit Hall is TriCord Tradeshow Services, electricity (beyond basic 15 amp), lighting, booth set-up and tear-down, and drayage must be arranged through this company. A complete Exhibitor’s Service Kit will be provided to each exhibitor by the decorator.

Booth Giveaways/Raffle

Exhibitors are encouraged to plan prize drawings or provide takeaway items. If you would like to provide raffle items to the conference management, we will handle the drawings in the Exhibit Hall during an Information Exchange session and give your company recognition.
