EXHIBITOR FAQS

I HAD A BOOTH AT EDGE LAST YEAR, SHOULD I HAVE ONE AGAIN THIS YEAR?

You bet! The Travel Leaders Network Trade Show is your chance to reinforce your brand, launch new products and services, and network with the travel industry’s decision makers! Our world class event is your opportunity to display your products and services to a captive audience of over 1,700 travel professionals from all over the world, and all of them are members of the largest leisure travel consortium in North America!

CAN I CHOOSE MY BOOTH ASSIGNMENT?

No, all booth assignments will be made by Travel Leaders Network Show Management.

WHEN WILL I KNOW MY BOOTH ASSIGNMENT?

Booth assignments will be assigned in the spring.  You will receive an email with your booth number, along with other important exhibitor information such as shipping forms.

WHAT IS THE CANCELLATION POLICY?

A $150.00 administrative fee will be charged, per exhibit space, if the exhibit space is cancelled at any time after the registration has been completed. In addition to the administrative fee, the following will be charged per exhibit space to any exhibitor that cancels within the following time periods: Before February 28, 2020 – Full Refund; February 29, 2020 – April 30, 2020: 50% of all exhibit fees; On or after May 1, 2020: No Refunds.

ARE THERE ANY RESTRICTIONS ON THE TYPES OF ACTIVITIES OR DISPLAYS I CAN SHOWCASE WITHIN MY BOOTH SPACE?

We love it when our exhibitors get creative! However it’s always a good idea to run your booth concepts by our show management team for approval. Most activities/concepts will be approved however we ask that you avoid any fog machines, lighted candles, all pyrotechnics or any type of air guns such as confetti throwers or t-shirt guns. Also, reaching out to the local DMC is a great way to kickstart some fresh ideas for your display and is highly encouraged. Remember, any exhibit displays must fit in your allocated exhibit area- NO EXCEPTIONS.

CAN I PURCHASE ADDITIONAL BOOTH SPACE OR UPGRADE TO A SPONSORSHIP LEVEL?

Yes, please contact Heather Jacobs at hjacobs@travelleaders.com to discuss upgrade opportunities and costs.

DO I NEED TO STAY FOR THE DURATION OF EDGE?

Your EDGE registration allows you to participate and network at our trade show, General Sessions and receptions for all the days of our conference. However, it is completely up to you if you would like to stay the entire time. Many suppliers decide to arrive the day before our trade show and then depart afterwards. Please just check your EDGE agenda to make sure your in and out plans do not conflict with any of your exhibitor or sponsor commitments.

I AM AN EXHIBITOR AT THIS YEAR’S EDGE AND I WOULD LIKE THE CONTACT INFORMATION FOR ALL AGENTS ATTENDING. IS THIS POSSIBLE?

Yes! You can purchase an attendee list for $2,000 USD. If purchased, the list will be sent out a few weeks before EDGE. We will also send out a final list post EDGE. Please note: We can provide a list of attendees with their name, address and phone number only. We do not provide the email addresses of our member agents. For those that want attendee information that contains email addresses, there will also be an option for you to purchase a badge scanner from SmartSource, our badge service provider, prior to the event.

HOW MANY ATTENDING REPS CAN I BRING TO EDGE? AND WHAT IS INCLUDED WITH THEIR ADMISSION?

Each single booth or table purchase comes with 2 included attending reps. Highboy table purchases come with 1 attending rep. Additional attending reps may be added for $500 pp or $200 pp if they are only attending for the day of your exhibit session.

HOW DO I MAKE THE MOST OF MY EDGE EXPERIENCE?

Like RuPaul says, “You better work!” Reach out to top agents beforehand to see if they are attending EDGE, set up onsite appointments with agents, invite agents to dine with you during open evenings and use the General Sessions and receptions to network and meet new agents. Also, use the EDGE hashtag to connect with agents via social media as well as connect via our EDGE mobile app. Our agents love to feel special so the more connections you can make, the more return you will receive on your EDGE investment.
