ALL EXHIBITORS need to check in at Exhibitor Check-In prior to moving into your booth/space location. Follow the signs to Exhibitor Check-In, the person at Check-In will help you locate your booth and space location, answer most, if not all your questions, and allow you to pick up your Exhibitor Badges to be worn at the Show.
YOUR DISPLAY(S) can be set up
- Thursday March 30, 8AM-8PM
- Friday March 31, 8AM-11AM
IN SETTING UP YOUR DISPLAY(S),please do not block off the view into your neighboring booths.
EXHIBITOR BADGES, to set you apart from the attendee’s and any possible imposter’s, exhibitor badges that will distinguish your representatives will be available on Friday morning from the Show Management at the Exhibitor Check-In. The badges will identify the user as an exhibitor and will accommodate a business card to further enhance your company’s appearance at the Show. Please be sure to use only what number of badges are needed, and share them with whomever takes your place in the booth, etc.
SIX EXHIBITOR PASSES that can be used all three days are included to get your personnel into the Show quickly and without paying a gate fee. You don’t need to surrender them until the end of the show on Sunday, simply show them at the show entrance. Please do not abuse their use. Security and staff will be closely monitoring any abuse. These are for your employees and your use only. These are not to be given to friends, relatives, etc.
VIP ADMISSION TICKETS. Complimentary VIP tickets will be made to you for your use in giving to your VIP clients, or use them to promote your business in any advertising you might do before the Show, or better yet, use them at the Show to give to those contacts you would like to see again Saturday or Sunday.
INCENTIVES. There is no better vehicle to substantiate a blockbuster incentive than a Trade Show – so why not take advantage of your decision to be an Exhibitor and make your strike!! This is your promotion within a promotion – please be sure to make it legal, profound, and include it in any of your advertising prior to the event. The stipulation should be that the attendee or prospective client must make contact with your firm at the Show, register at your booth and then you can give them ample time to take advantage of whatever your incentive is. The “ample time” is your decision; we suggest 60 to 90 days or more. Remember the incentives are accumulative so this alone makes for enough reason to attend the Show.
SHOW LOGO: Use the Show Logo in your promotions and advertising to identify your firm as being a part of the event. A number of firms intend to use the logo in their ads prior to the show to enhance their success at the event. If you would like the logo for use in a publication, please call us.
PARKING INSTRUCTIONS: After unloading for your appropriate booth or outside exhibit area, park your vehicles away from the building, in the designated Exhibitor Parking areas. No exhibitor vehicles are allowed to be parked in the attendee parking area. Please adhere to this!!
REMEMBER: There are no ladders, dollies, hammers, brooms, pencils, paper, scissors, tape etc. Bring these items with you or arrange for their use with a rental firm. We will have one forklift, and it is usually busy doing other work. Any forklift usage must be operated by a certified employee, billed to you at $50.00. We must have advanced notice if you think you need to use it.
INSURANCE: You are required to have your own liability and property insurance coverage for your exhibit area.
RV PARKING: There is no RV parking available at the facility. Please call Midway RV Park and mention the Total Home Garden Show for a discount. Midway RV Park is located at 4933 Midway Road, Vacaville, 707-446-7679 or visit website at www.midwaypark.com
STATE BOARD OF EQUALIZATION – SALES TAX: The sales tax for Solano County is 8.625%. The State Board of Equalization requires a valid Resale Number by all Exhibitors if they are retail sales oriented companies. If you are going to sell a tangible product at the show, and you do not have a California Resale Number, you must acquire one from the State Board prior to the Show, plus you must display a copy of the above Resale Number in your booth/display.
CARPET/ELECTRICAL: If you have carpet or electrical in your display area, all exposed edges must be taped down. The booths inside the building will have electrical, be sure to bring several extension cords for your use, as they are a must. We will bring the electrical supply to you, or near your booth/display, you are responsible for any extension cords. Outside Exhibitors must use all-weather extension cords & have arranged electrical prior to the show for extra cost.
TABLES – COUNTERS – CHAIRS, ETC: The fee you have paid includes (inside booths only) electricity, one 6’ covered and draped table, and two folding chairs. Any additional tables, counters, chairs, carpets, I.D. signs, etc. are available at additional costs. If you would like to have additional items for the booth, please tell us ahead of time. Some firms who have their own elaborate booth fixtures might not want any covered and draped table, folding chairs, etc. in their booth. If so, please advise us. Unless noted otherwise, or advised differently, we will supply you with the covered and draped table and number of chairs that you ordered upon sign up.
PLEASE READ over your agreement, as you are bound by it. Remember no sub or cross leasing. Only the firms that have paid for space may be promoted at the Show. If sub or cross-leasing happens, the firm in question will be asked to leave or pay the full booth fee once again!
SECURITY will be supplied by us for Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights and through Sunday until 10PM. This will consist of one individual who will patrol the facility plus the outside grounds. This does not guarantee that items will be completely safe. This is only a deterrent.
SUGGESTED ATTIRE at THE TOTAL HOME GARDEN SHOW is your normal professional appearance in the conducting of your business.
MUSIC IN BOOTH: Live or taped music is prohibited as part of an exhibit or display. Any sound emanating from a booth must not be intrusive to the neighboring booths.
IT IS MANDATORY: That all personnel manning the display booths be present in the booth no later than fifteen minutes prior to show time.
CLOSING DOWN: Removal of displays must not start before 5:00PM on Sunday and should be completed by 8:30PM. There are always attendees in the Show until closing. Not only is it a safety issue, but also it is extremely disruptive to Exhibitors and attendees who are conducting business. Thanks for your cooperation in this matter. We are available for additional teardown of your booth space on Monday April 3 from 8AM - 1PM. Please inform the staff if you will be tearing down on Monday
NO FOOD OR DRINK DISPENSING IS ALLOWED: The only main authorized food and drink concessionaires are the ones that have paid for that specialty!
PLACING FLYERS on car windshields is prohibited and against local ordinances.
PLEASE remember that The Home & Garden Show management has the responsibility to all the participating firms and agencies to put on a professional event. With that in mind, we thank you again in advance for your cooperation and participation.
