It is my pleasure, on behalf of the AIST-Northern Chapter, to invite you to attend / exhibit at the 2013 Product & Service Fair, Tuesday, March 19th, at the Hamilton Convention Centre.
Last year,we had a brief presentation on new projects that are in the planning stage, to allow companies to be aware and follow up for potential new business. This was scheduled prior to exhibition opening, to allow exhibitors to participate, and was well received. We are expanding this portion for this year,and are finalizing content. We hope that this will be a benefit to your company to increase sales.
Another improvement for this year, is to start the dinner with Keynote Presentation earlier, again to allow exhibitors to attend dinner/presentation and take down after dinner. Dinner will be held in the exhibition hall to, again for ease of exhibitors, avoiding the shuffle,and time, going to upstairs ballroom. We feel this arrangement will maximize exhibition / networking time right up to dinner, again increasing the opportunity for increased business.
Standard booths are 10ft x 10ft, costs include draped backdrop, 3 ft side curtains, draped table, two chairs, 110V outlet, and two dinner reservations for evening Keynote Presentation.
Cost per standard booth is $580, extra dinners for exhibitors will be at member rate of $45. Many companies reserve a table of 8 as this is an ideal customer appreciation opportunity. ($580 +6 @ $45 = $850).
Larger booths are available at extra cost, additional dinner reservations are available without booking entire table. Cost include any taxes,and are in Canadianor US dollars.
Hall is equipped with wireless internet access, to allow exhibitors to conduct normal business, and there will be two cash bars.
With a more positive economic outlook, we are once again expecting another successful event.
If you would like to reserve space as an exhibitor, or have any questions, please get back to me as space is limited.
Lets make this event, our 15th, an outstanding success for all, have some fun networking.
