AGAIN This Year - Best Vendor Booth!
In 2018, we will continue a little friendly competition to the PEN Show, in the form of an award for the Best Vendor Booth. We will have the attendees voting on the best vendor booth. The winner will receive a prize based on attendee votes.
Space for Exhibition Trucks, Trailers, and Vans
Vendors have the opportunity to bring an exhibition truck, trailer, or van. Vendor companies that have paid for a table in the exhibition hall may bring an exhibition truck, trailer, or van to the PEN Show. Please note on your registration form whether your company will be bringing an exhibition vehicle so we can plan accordingly.
This year we will continue offering a VIP section of tables at the PEN Show. This VIP area will be located immediately after the registration desk, and before access to the seminar rooms and main exhibition hall. All foot traffic will have to pass through this VIP area to access the rest of the PEN Show, maximizing the exposure these vendor tables will receive. Due to the limited nature of the VIP section, only 2017-2018 Section Sponsors will be able to set up in the VIP area. If your company is interested in becoming a Section Sponsor, please click here for more information on benefits and how to register. We will soon begin rolling out information for the 2017-2018 sponsorship year, so stay tuned!
There is no charge to attend the 2018 PEN Show. Seminars and dinner are all provided free of charge. We ask that you RSVP so that we can provide an accurate head count to the caterer. In addition, all attendees who RSVP will be entered into a special door prize drawing just for online RSVPs!
