VENDOR / BOOTH REGISTRATION:

  • Early Registration Dates (Sponsors and Approved Presenters only):
    SV Events will email a link at 11:30 AM, Eastern each day as noted below. Registrations need to be completed by 5:30 PM, Eastern. If you do not register by that time, we will select a booth for you so we can get the site ready for the next level of early registrations.

    • 1/11/24 – Diamond sponsors
    • 1/16/24 – Platinum Plus/Platinum sponsors
    • 1/17/24 – Gold sponsors
    • 1/18/24 – Silver sponsors
    • 1/23/24 – Bronze sponsors

IMPORTANT: Cancellations for double booking booths will be charged a $75.00 administrative fee.

Important Notes/Helpful Hints:

    • There is no option to purchase more than one booth.
    • If you hit the button at 11:59 AM, it will not go anywhere. It is set to open at 12:00 PM, Eastern.
    • Review floor plan, pricing, inclusions, terms and conditions, etc. and get your questions answered and any approvals needed from your company prior to date the link opens. I would hate to see you miss the opportunity to secure a booth because you are waiting for answers and/or approvals.
    • If the registration system does not accept your credit card, change the form of payment to “check” and finish your registration. You can call us later to change the form of payment and we can figure out why the credit card wasn’t accepted. Many times it is a case of an incorrect billing address or card number entered incorrectly.
    • Please do not call or send an email on 1/24/24 and expect an immediate response. We receive lots of calls on booth registration day and all booths may be gone by the time we can get back to you. Reading all details on the Vendor Fair Exhibitors tab usually answers 95% of the questions we receive the day the link goes live.

INVOICE/RECEIPT:

  • Your emailed confirmation has a button link to open and print your invoice/receipt.

MODIFY EXISTING VENDOR REGISTRATION / ADD BOOTH REPS:

  • If you have confirmed a booth and need to make changes to your registration and/or add company representatives, use the link below.
  • You will need the email address and reference number from your emailed booth confirmation.
  • If it is not in your inbox, check your junk, spam or other folders. Those are usually the culprits.
