Treasure Island Trade Show Vendor Agreement & Guidelines

All table, chair, electrical and miscellaneous supply needs, need to be communicated to the event planner one week in advance. If additional equipment is needed when you arrive, staff will be happy to assist, however there may be a charge. Please understand that staff will help as soon as possible but there may be a wait for last minute requests.

Packages can only be shipped to Treasure Island three days prior to the start of the event. Please ship them to the warehouse, not the hotel or Event Center. Anything that arrives on a Sunday will be refused unless it was set up prior to that day and the Treasure Island team has been notified. Any costs incurred from the refusal of packages are the vendor’s responsibility. At the conclusion of the event we will send any outbound packages out for you if they are properly wrapped and have a pre-paid address label attached. It is the vendor’s responsibility to supply their own labels and wrapping materials. Treasure Island staff will direct you to an area where your package can be left in the tradeshow room. If you are scheduling a pick up from an outside carrier, this information must be communicated and approved to/by the Banquet Manager. You must notify a Treasure Island Team Member if you have any outgoing packages to ensure timely shipping.

Vendors loading in must be self-sufficient and bring their own carts/hand jacks. Access to the Event Center storage area is allowed during load in/out only. Treasure Island equipment is not available for use. Doors are not to be propped open and garage doors must remain closed after load in. Staff will be on site to assist with needs and will get to them as soon as possible.

When loading out, please dispose of cardboard/pallets properly in the dumpster behind the Event Center. Anything left behind will be held for 10 days and then disposed of.

Free WI-FI is available. Select the Server: PublicAccess, open a browser and agree to the terms and conditions.

Please contact the event coordinator for load in/set-up times. No early admittance allowed.
