TABLE NOTES: As the tables supplied for our use at Shopko Hall
get old and worn out and therefore retired, the facility management is replacing
them with new tables. A few things to note about this:
1. Some wood tables are 24" wide, not 30".
Theoretically there will be enough of the 30" tables to supply our vendors at
this time; 24" tables will be used if necessary for the layouts first.
2. Plastic tables are 30" wide, similar in appearance to the kind
of table many of you have purchased (at Sam's, for example). However,
PMI's experience with these is that they are not as strong as the wood tables
and will deform or collapse under any significant weight (like a book seller,
for example). Therefore they are limiting our use of these as well.
In any event, please LABEL YOUR PERSONAL TABLES so they don't get mixed up with
PMI's during their inventory process.
3. Please note we have no control over what tables are
available, as we do not own them ourselves. We will make every effort to
make sure 24" and/or plastic tables go to non-critical spots at the show, and we active
work with facility management to resolve any issue before it becomes
critical. WE ARE AWARE of many vendors' (and some layouts) apprehension
over this table issue, so we appreciate your patience as we do our best to
accommodate your needs.
One other thing related to #2 above: If you are using electricity
(layouts included), please make sure you're using ONE plug (one socket... not
both parts of an ordinary duplex receptacle). Again, the facility is
charging us PER PLUG, not per receptacle. IF YOU NEED MORE THAN ONE
OUTLET, please let us know. You should be able to attach a power strip to
the single socket and get what you need.
Please make sure to mark all relevant information on the
forms; if you have special requirements, please let us know. We cannot be
responsible for incomplete or unclear information, and changes due to
misunderstandings are extremely difficult to do once you get to the show!
For layouts, please note that we cannot possibly accommodate all
layouts that apply; our venue size just simply isn't large enough and vendor
tables are what pays for the space.
That doesn't mean to discourage you from applying! We simply must operate
on a first-come, first-serve basis (by scale), which means get your applications
back to us as soon as possible after we mail them to you. It not only is
very democratic, it levels the playing field and also usually "mixes things up"
so there is a new mix of layouts every year.
A corollary to the application policy is that any layout turned down for a
show is automatically guaranteed a spot at the next show. Since we usually
have to turn away three or four HO layouts, this assures a fresh rotation.
A completed application is still required.
For Vendors, the more tables we sell, the more likely it is we will
expand our available floor space, including the "Resch Connector" (which we
cannot guarantee in any case). Note that
table prices go up $15 after January 1st, 2016, so if you know you are coming,
it is in your best interest to apply early.
We did have a few issues in the past with new vendors misunderstanding what they
were getting. A "regular" table is just that: a 30" x 96" table, set
up so there is at least 42" of useable space behind it; it is NOT a 10'x10'
For that, you would need to request a "Prime" spot, which is a 10x10 space in
the front of the hall that includes a skirted table and surrounding "pipe and
drape" (like a professional trade show). You will see the difference in
pricing on the application.
Also, while many vendors prefer setting up against a
wall, we do obviously have a limited amount of "wall space" so though we try to
make everyone happy, we will create an arrangement that works best for the show.
Please remember that while we try our hardest to accommodate location
and arrangement requests (e.g. "just like last
year please!"), we cannot guarantee anything due to the changing
nature of the participants. If anything is a "deal breaker", please let us
If you have any
questions, give us a call or drop us an email. Thank you!
