Sponsor Logistics


All sponsors will be located in the main exhibit hall where the cocktail receptions, breakfast and exhibit hours will be held. There will be no booth numbers displayed during the conference - all tables are viewable in the exhibit hall. 

Each exhibitor will be given a 6' draped table, 2 chairs, an extension cord with 5amps of power and basic wireless internet access.

All sponsors will be able to set up pop-up banners behind their table and may have small technology displayed on their table (or a small cart) but large automation is strictly prohibited unless you have secured one of the 4 available 10' x 10' spots. The 10' x 10' spots are an add-on to sponsorship and available on a first-come, first-served basis and allows you to bring capital equipment, such as dispensing automation.


Shipping of conference materials can be done either through the Encore Hotel or by Pyramid Logistics. As the show gets closer, shipping details will be emailed out to all sponsors and will be posted here on the event website. 


Sponsor check-in and set up begins at 8:30 a.m. the morning of the conference, Tuesday, September 11th. All materials must be removed from the hall by 6:00 p.m. on Thursday, September 13th. 

The first dedicated exhibit hour is at 3:30 p.m. on Tuesday, September 11th. The last true exhibit hour is the cocktail reception Wednesday night. All are invited to breakfast in the exhibit hall on Thursday morning, so if you choose to teardown during that time please be discrete and mindful of the attendees. 


Please note this schedule is provided for arranging travel. Time slots within the conference may vary as agenda is finalized. Final agenda will be posted on event website and emailed out mid-summer.
