What do I do about shipping my items through Customs?

To assist the exhibitors for our conference we will be contracting with Davidson and Sons which is a Canadian Customs Broker. They will serve as our official customs broker for the 2019 ATLA Annual Conference. They will process the delivery of all shipping related items for your participation in our conference. We will provide you with a registration number once your exhibitor contract has been received. We hope that this will be an immense help with customs, immigration, and warehouse services.

I am a first time exhibitor, how do others normally set up their space?

ATLA's exhibit hall may differ slightly from other trade shows in that there is no pipe and drape between or behind tables. Generally speaking, exhibitors bring a table drape/skirt with their logo. Also, most exhibitors, especially those with one table, tend to ship samples only or limit the total number of products shipped to the conference. Be sure to bring plenty of order sheets though, as our members like to place orders at or after the conference! And you are more than welcome to sell samples/stock to our members at the conference.  

What are the size of the tables in the Exhibit Hall?

Each exhibit space rental will be provided with a 6' x 2.5' table (unless otherwise requested in the application). Your table comes covered and skirted with 2 chairs.  

What is the Passport Program?

Designed to generate excitement and increase exhibit traffic, the Passport Program encourages conference attendees to visit exhibitors. Conference attendees will be given a paper passport that lists all exhibitors and will be encouraged to ask exhibitor representatives to initial the passport when they visit your space. This is a great opportunity to engage attendees and share information about your products or services.

All attendees who have a complete passport and are present at the Friday, 10:30 a.m. Break and Closing are eligible for the prize drawing.

Prizes are donated by our exhibitors. If your company is interested in donating an item (or items) to the Passport Program, please contact Winners will visit your booth to pick up any prizes you donate.  

May I attend a conference session?

As part of the Exhibitor Package, two complimentary exhibits-only registrations are included. Exhibits-only registration does not include attending multiple sessions, pre-conferences, or excursions unless you purchase an upgraded badge. If you want to attend any of these activities, you may upgrade your exhibits-only registration for $50. Select Upgraded Exhibitor Badge on the Exhibitor and Sponsor Contract and Order Form.
