For the final two hours of the show, distributors will be allowed to bring a limited number of clients. This is not intended to be as big as our Road Show, in fact, we encourage distributors to escort their clients on the show floor (there's no way they can see it all in two hours). This will give you the opportunity to bring clients who have a big project in the works or may have missed the show in August.

  • Distributor members, who are also show attendees, can invite clients to attend between 1-3 pm.
  • Distributors can have one client attend for free and will be charged $25 for each additional client that attends.
  • You are responsible for escorting your clients and collecting all leads.
  • For an additional fee you can provide complimentary parking or valet service for your clients.
