Don't forget, our product showcase will displayed during the seminars and dinner on Wednesday and during the show on Thursday. If you're participating in the showcase, please drop your product(s) off at the registration desk by Noon on Wednesday or as soon as you can.

There's still time to submit your products for the product showcase. CLICK HERE to submit your product information.
Exhibitor Services Kit & Electricity
You should have already received an exhibitor services kit from George Fern.  Don't forget, your booth will not be carpeted - you will need to order it from George Fern if you want carpet in your booth.

Electric can be ordered through the Music City Center. They will have a service desk on the show floor.

GOOD NEWS: The Music City Center now has free WiFi in all public areas!
Poker Run
These exhibitors are participating in the Poker Run:
3M Promotional Products
BIC Graphic
Delta Apparel
Hit Promotional Products
TriBci Wholesale Printing Essentials

Distributor attendees have to visit each of the poker run booths and draw a card to participate. The one with the best poker hand wins the jackpot. Right now that jackpot is $500, so you'd better believe they'll be visiting the participating booths.

Booth Assignments & Floor Plan
Lunch on Thursday
The food court will be open during the show on Thursday. It's located on the show floor. Each exhibitor will receive a voucher good for an entree and drink (one voucher per booth). Anyone else can purchase lunch using cash or credit card.

If you ordered a boxed lunch, it will be delivered to your booth around 11:30am.
Membership & Awards Dinner
Our Membership & Awards dinner promises to be an unforgettable evening. The event features the presentation of the Best of PPAMS Awards, and the addition of three inductees into the PPAMS Hall of Fame, recognition of our 25 year members, and remarks from Paul Bellantone with PPAI. Following the dinner, everyone is invited to join us on Broadway for some Honky Tonkin' with PPAMS.
