How many passes do I get as an exhibitor?
The breakdown is as follows:
- 1-2 Tables = 2 passes
- 3-4 Tables = 3 passes
- 4-8 Tables = 4 passes
- 8 + Tables = 5 passes
Extras can be purchased at the back door. Fees will be posted there. Sorry, you cannot purchase full tables at the event.
I’m a non-profit community club. Do I need to buy an exhibitor table?
You may not need to pay for a table, depending on your status as a community club. Contact us for more information.
What does my booth include?
One 8ft. x 30in. table, no tablecloth, or skirting. Pipe and drape will surround your booth, and you will have approx. 100 sq. ft. of space.
What does my table include?
One 8ft. x 30in. table, no tablecloth or skirting, no pipe and drape. These tables are arranged in blocks of 7, 8, and 10. Depending on how many tables you book you may have a corner, which is the equivalent to 100sq. ft. of space. If you have 1 table, you will have the space on your table, plus space underneath plus approx. 6-8ft. behind you which can be used to set up shelving units or other displays as necessary. This is a neighbor situation, so you will have exhibitors next to you and behind you.
Where is my booth/table? Where can I see the floor plan?
Check the Floor Plan page for downloadable PDFs of the floor plans for both floors of the Winnipeg Convention Centre. You should have received information regarding your table location from our organizers via email.
Does my booth/table include power?
No. Power is extra and can be bought through the Winnipeg Convention Centre on Friday only. Please be sure to have cash on hand.
What happens during Registration?
When you arrive at the Convention Centre on Friday, it is advised that you come up to the 3rd floor using the ORANGE elevator on the corner on Edmonton and St. Mary Ave. This is the ONLY elevator that will have access to the 3rd floor, and will get you to our registration team. They will show you where your tables are, get you your exhibitor passes and give you any pertinent information that you need.
What about set up and tear down?
Set up will begin on Friday at 6am. You are required to drive up the ramp located on Edmonton St. and park in one of the seven stalls in the loading dock. You will be given a timeframe to come up the ramp. If you are early for your timeframe you will need to wait. Once you have unloaded your items and taken them to your tables you need to move your vehicle. You can park in the parkade across the street or the underground parkade of the convention centre. If you want to use the lower loading dock on the corner of Edmonton and St. Mary you can, and use the freight elevator. We will not have anyone manning the area downstairs, but someone will be at the freight elevator.
Where can I park?
We will have a limited number of parking passes for sale. These are good for the underground parking lot only. They cost $10.00 per day, and allow you to park your vehicle for the entire day. They are NOT good for in and out access.
Can I choose my booth / table location?
Generally speaking no. Exhibitors who have booked blocks of 8 or 10, or more than 5 booths can choose their location. If you’ve booked less you can give us your preferred location and we’ll do our best to get you where you’d like to be located. We don’t have an interactive floor plan and because it’s always in flux we’re unable to let everyone pick their own spot.
Is there security?
Yes, there is security patrolling the convention centre and nearby.
