Exhibitor Information - Atlanta
All this information below will help you, but please feel free to call us anytime at 801.822.1333 with questions.
Booth amenities: You can supply your own booth items, but we have an excellent supplier/decorator in Cherry Convention Services. Use password Pinners17 after you click here for their online Exhibitor Kit or you may call them at 770.242.5955 or e-mail Catherine at firstname.lastname@example.org with questions. Your booth is simply your space with black pipe and drape (8' back wall and 3' sides) and Cherry can supply nearly everything else. Commonly ordered items include draped tables, chairs, carpet & more.
Electrical is actually ordered directly from the Cobb Galleria (along with internet). Basic electrical goes for $85 pre-ordered. They use an online ordering system you can access by clicking here. If you need further instructions click here. For more questions or if you prefer humans, contact the Cobb Galleria at email@example.com or 770-989-5016.
Wifi or hardlined internet is is available thru the Cobb Galleria using the same system above. Single users are approximately $90 per show (pre-ordered) or up to 4 users for $260. Faster speeds available.
BOOTH DESIGN RULES
We are fortunate in Georgia to not have a lot of set-up and design regulations. All booth amenities must be within the allotted space (nothing in the isles) unless pre-approved. Anything deemed unsafe in the opinion of the expo organizer (such as tipping hazards) will be required to change. We also ask that there be no solid side walls on your booth that block the view to your neighbors for the attendees that are walking down the isle. The provided drape rods will support normal banners but in general are not to be used as booth support. Helium balloons can be used, but only if they are attached securely to your booth. Please do not hand out helium balloons.
SHIPPING & HANDLING
The Cobb Galleria will accept shipments that arrive within 72 hours of the show. See Cobb's shipping and receiving guidelines here, and fill out their shipping and receiving form here. This form must be submitted to the Cobb Galleria.

SET-UP | TAKE-DOWN
Set-up is Thursday, April 20th between 8 a.m. and 6 p.m. It is open set-up (no times, except for those blocking the dock). Check-in at the desk near the back loading docks for information, exhibitor badges, location help, etc. Drive-ins not allowed during set-up day (too full). If you have a very large set-up that does require drive-in or extra time, please contact us about a possible set-up time on Wednesday afternoon/evening.
Take-down is anytime after 7 p.m. (to 11 p.m.) on Saturday evening. No early take downs!
You will all be given a promo code that you can be used online for free general admission for all of your friends. This includes admission but not classes. Tickets generally $7 at the door.
We will also give each exhibiting business a class punch card good for 2 classes each day of the show. You can use or pass around this card as you wish, and these are passes for 'stand-by'. Class passes above these two classes each day will need to be purchased.
At your request you can also have a customized 10% off promo code made (just for you, such as "ikea") that any of your friends can use online for 10% off their tickets. Please e-mail us with that request.
Our host hotel will be the Sheraton Suites Galleria-Atlanta (770.955.3900) located at 2844 Cobb Parkway SE, Atlanta, Georgia. There is a walkway connecting the Sheraton and the Galleria Centre. Click here for a booking link (at $129 night).
DOOR PRIZES AND GIVEAWAYS
We welcome giveaways from all exhibitors wishing to do so. This is a good opportunity for a little added promotion at the show. You may do basically any giveaway you'd like from your own booth, but if you would like us to help you promote it, the minimum value of the giveaway must be $100 and you are limited one major giveaway per day. We'll be sure to do an overhead announcement about the giveaway. If you'd like to participate, please contact Roxanne (801.361.8382) or e-mail us here.
FOOD and TEMPORARY PERMIT QUESTIONS
Cobb Galleria does not allow giving away drinks or water. If you are dealing with any food items at the show, you'll need to work through the Cobb Galleria for approval. Click here for Cobb's application for Food Sampling & Handling. When approved, you may also need to check with the Health Department to find out if you need a temporary food handlers permit.
