How Does This Show Work?

This is a different type of show.  It is a "Room Show," meaning that distributor attendees rotate in groups from exhibitor to exhibitor for a 25-minute presentation.  There's a set schedule that we encourge our groups to adhere to, but we understand if situtations arise where it's not possible.   

This is a distributor-only show (no end buyers, please).  

Distributor show fee includes:  morning beverages and snacks, plated lunch, 11 exhibitor presentations that provide in-depth education, free show bags, free notebook/pens, samples, and the After Party - drawing for door prizes.   Not to mention the mountains of information obtained by attending these presentations.  Those that attend tell us it was the best decision they've made in a long time; those that don't attend tell us they wish they had.    


Who Should Attend this Show?  

Distributor sales reps should attend and expect to receive in-depth education from the exhibiting suppliers about their products, processes, and WHO to sell their products to, and how.   

Nonmembers may attend this show as long as they qualify.  

  • Current ASI, PPAI, or SAGE company membership number - or 

  • Specific invitation from an exhibitor as one of their valued distributor customers.  
     

End buyers are not allowed.  This is a distributor-only show.  

Is there a Fee to Attend?  

Yes, there is.  The cost is $25 for distributor members and $35 for nonmembers.  This includes breakfast, morning beverages, 11 in-depth supplier education sessions, plated lunch, samples, and the "Prize Party" (beverages, appetizers, and drawings for prizes).  

Hotel Reservations

We will have a block of rooms at the Marriott; check back.  

 


 

Exhibitor Information 

 

What is the schedule for this show?  

  • Each exhibitor makes eleven, 25-minute presentations to groups of distributors, with a 5-minute break in between.    Each distributor group is usually between 9 - 15 people, and they rotate together through a pre-assigned schedule so every exhibitor has sales reps in their room for every presentation.  
     
  • The sit-down lunch also serves as UMAPP's annual meeting, and includes a presentation of awards.  
     
  • The Prize Party is held at the same location as lunch, and features appetizers and prize drawings for the distributors.
