Full set up info will come 7 days before the Expo. However, here are some FAQ’s to get you ready for the Expo.

Where exactly is the event located?

The Shops at Wiregrass – 28211 Paseo Drive, Wesley Chapel, FL 33543 (Exhibitor spots will be located on Paseo Drive in front of Macy’s)

Saturday, March 9th| 10AM-2PM

 

 

Where will my booth be located?

Sponsors get first pick according to their level and time of payment and then Bronze packages and the others are assigned.

 

Is this outdoors?

It’s an outdoor event. This event will go on rain or shine, unless forced to close for a natural disaster or dangerous weather. 

 

Will there be electricity?

Yes! Please bring your own extension cord. All electricity is located near the palm trees by your booth.

 

When can I set up?

Set Up Time: 8:30AM-9:30AM 

Please do not arrive earlier as we will be setting up prior to this time. Unless you want to volunteer 😉 

 

Where do I set up?

Enter on Paseo Drive at the American Eagle side.

Here is a quick video to WATCH where it’s at.

 

Can I bring a tent?

Yes, highly suggested as it will be hot. You will need to have 20lbs weights on each leg to make a total of 80lbs. NO EXCEPTIONS.

 

Do I need to bring my own table and chairs?

Yes sponsors AND exhibitors must bring their own table or chairs. This is one way we have been able to reduce our prices on your exhibitor fees. 

 

How much space do I have around my booth?

Your booth space is at a minimum of 10 x 10, enough to fit one tent. Sponsors at Silver and up have an entire parking spot which is about 20 x 20 space.

Please WATCH Video to see booth space.

 

How many people should I have at my booth?

We suggest to having at least two so you can speak to multiple people at the same time.

 

How can I attract families to my booth?

Avoid sitting in your tent and looking at your phone.

Look happy and excited. It’s harder to tell when someone is wearing a mask.

Make your booth attractive, have candy or a visual, experiment or activity at your booth.

 

Will there be a scavenger guide as in years past?

Yes, we will do an Easter Treat Guide and we will provide you with stickers to hand out to families when they come visit you. This encourages families to see multiple exhibitors.  Bring some candy with you for the kids. We will provide a starting amount for our Sponsors.

 

Where do I park?

There will be designated parking spots after you have dropped off all of your booth items at your assigned space. A copy of the diagram will be added below and sent through email. 

Lot C and behind the parking garage. Here is a video and we will have maps available as well.

Watch Lot C Video for location

Watch Parking Garage Video for location

Do we have access to WIFI?

There will be free internet available by The Shops at Wiregrass. However, we cannot guarantee the speed due to the number of people that will be accessing the internet on that day. Unfortunately, we have no control over this. We are simply renting the space for the event. So please have a contingency plan if the internet is not accessible. 

 

How does closing procedures work? Please DO NOT break down early.

If you leave prior to 2 PM, then you will NOT be allowed to exhibit with us in the future. Please leave your booth area clean from any trash. This includes cut zip ties, boxes, flyers, food wrapper etc. Please leave the area the same way that you found it and take all of your trash including your food waste with you. 

The bollards that block traffic will come down 10-15 minutes after the event ends – to give customers time to clear the street before exhibitors can start bringing their cars in. We ask all exhibitors clear the street within an hour after the event ends – so we can reopen Paseo Drive.
