We do not have pipe & drape for the Connect conferences. These are just table top displays. Each exhibitor will have a draped table – approximately six to eight feet in length, tables vary by each hotel. Each table will have access to an electrical power strip. Be sure to pack your own extension power strips. The hotels will charge you if you need to borrow one!
Once you check in at the AEA Registration Desk, you can proceed to the ballroom where the table top exhibits are set up. Your company name will be on an assigned table. We do not send out your table number prior to the meeting.
A week before the Connect Conference, the registered representative from the exhibiting company will receive an email with the subject line, “Exhibitor Update - Connect Conference”. The email will provide the location of the table top exhibits, location of the registration desk and times to check in and set-up. The update will contain any last minute details.
The exhibit hall at all Connect conferences is only open on the first day of the 2-day conference. Please check the AEA website for the particular Connect Conference you are attending. You will find the exhibit hall hours on the meeting schedule.
YES, we only have the ballroom for one day – the exhibitor is responsible to pack up their display and make sure it gets to the hotel business center for outbound shipping. Don’t forget to pack shipping tape, waybills, etc.
Ship it to the hotel address provided on the AEA website – each Connect Conference has its own page that contains the address of the hotel. Be sure to label the shipment to your attention / AEA Connect Conference. You will be responsible for any charges from the hotel for receiving your shipment. Be sure to check on the arrival prior to your arrival at the hotel.
