Exhibitor Information

Cobb Galleria Centre, Atlanta, Georgia


All this information below will help you, but please feel free to call us anytime at 801.822.1333 with questions.

Supplier / Booth Amenities

Our supplier/decorator will once again be Superior Expo Services. Click here for the 2023 Exhibitor Kit. You may also contact them by phone at (972) 271-7444. Your booth is simply your space with black pipe and drape (8' back wall and 3' side walls) and Superior can supply nearly everything else. You may also bring in your own booth stuff but commonly ordered items from Superior include draped tables, chairs, carpet & more.

Electrical

Electrical and internet are both ordered directly from the Cobb Galleria.

Basic electrical (computer charging-type outlet) goes for $88 pre-ordered. They prefer you ordering through their online ordering system here. If necessary you may also call 770-989-5051 to order. Click here for a complete Cobb electrical and internet price list.

Internet

Internet and electrical are both ordered directly from the Cobb Galleria.

Wifi users are usually around $195 per show (pre-ordered) or up to 10 users for $600. Faster speeds available. They prefer you ordering through their online ordering system here. If necessary you may also call 770-989-5051 to order. Click here for a complete Cobb electrical and internet price list.

Booth Design Rules

We are fortunate in our state 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.

   Scam e-mails offering e-mail lists for purchase

We have learned from several exhibitors they are receiving scam emails offering attendee lists for purchase. Please be aware these offers are fraudulent. These scammers do not have any relationship with Pinners or Bennett Events and they do NOT have the data they are attempting to sell. Scams may also include fake invoices and hotel booking scams. Do not interact with these. Our emails are from bennettevents.com.  We are a permission-based email sender. We do not share, rent or sell our email lists. Please be on guard! Spammers are known to impersonate employees and illegally use show logos.

Shipping & Material Handling

There is a new policy that the Cobb will not receive any freight on behalf of exhibitors. Shipping and handling should be coordinated through Superior Expo above or personal arrangements. You may possibly receive and sign for items shipped to the Cobb yourself if you can gaurantee its arrival while you are there for set-up days. If you have any more questions you may call our office at 801-822-1333.

An exhibitor has suggested one more option. You can also get your freight shipped to YRC Freight Line on Airport Industrial Blvd in Marietta and arrange a dock pick up. It's about 1.5 miles from the Cobb Galleria and it's a great way to save shipping budget money.

Set-Up | Take-Down

Set-up is Thursday, April 18th between 8 a.m. and 6 p.m. Enter at the back part of the building (southeast side, via Galleria Parkway SE) to get into the loading dock area. It is open set-up (no assigned times). Check-in at the desk near the back loading docks for information, exhibitor badges, location help, etc. Please plan on unloading and then moving you car before you finish your set-up. Drive-ins to the building itself are not allowed during set-up day. The Cobb would prefer that we not have early set-up on Wednesday for liability reasons. They've also asked that there be no children during load-in and load-out times for liability reasons.

Take-down is anytime after 7 p.m. (to 11 p.m.) on Saturday evening. No early take downs please!

Parking

You may park in the back (east or south) for loading and unloading only. On show days please use the main front parking lots for your vehicle. There will be a Cobb parking fee of $10. Utility trailer parking is available at a Cobb co-owned Marshalling Yard southeast of the facility but there is a fee for this lot (up to $100). See a map for directions to the trailer lot here.

Classes

We will 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.

Raffle & Swag

Raffle Prize
As an exhibitor you can also contribute a raffle prize to be given away at our VIP night kick-off party without any additional cost! Raffle prizes must be valued at $100 or more and end up being highly- talked about items throughout the weekend. 

Swag Bag
We also wanted to remind you that you can contribute items to our swag bag for free! Each of our presenters and VIP attendees will receive a swag bag to kick-off the event. All we ask is that you don’t give any flyers or coupons. Instead, share a teaser of the products you have to offer. Contributing a gift like that to the swag bag will have our most influential group of attendees talking about and purchasing your stuff all weekend long. You will need to bring 325 items with you to set up Thursday morning, and we’ll take care of the rest.
If you'd like to participate, please email Darienne.
