Connection Fair

SAVE THE DATES!

Welcome Home, RGV’s Connection Fair will be held Tuesday, November 5, 2019 from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. at the McAllen Convention Center. At last year’s Connection Fair, we had 147 vendors, over 250 attendees with over 100 parks represented, and we feel certain this year’s event will be equally successful.

We will start the afternoon with special entertainment then roll right into the show. The show is the perfect opportunity to meet as many activity directors and property managers as possible to provide them with an overview of what you have to offer. This targeted approach allows you to meet directly with the decision makers in our Valley parks and resorts.

The Connection Fair is just one of the exciting activities Welcome Home, RGV has planned for this season. We invite you to join our show this year. Call (956) 687-5115 to get registered.

"The format of the Show allowed us to Connect with 99.9% of both the Guests as well as our fellow Vendors. But the Entertainment was incredible as well." Johnny Oliva, Health Care Unlimited

"Best part for me was the opportunity to meet with all the AD's and PM's all in one spot. I was able to confirm appoints that I had already made and fill my calendar with new ones. Loved the entertainment." Kirk Kotylo, Mr. Mobile Home Insurance

Already an exhibitor?

Here's what you need to know:

Most importantly, the show will be taking place on Tuesday, November 5 from 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm. Setup is on Tuesday morning from 10 am to 12:30 pm. We expect that everyone will finish moving in Tuesday morning and be prepared by 12:30 PM on Tuesday.

WHEN ENTERING THE CONVENTION CENTER, DO SO THROUGH THE BACK DOCKS ONLY. EXHIBITORS ARE NOT PERMITTED TO USE THE MAIN ENTRANCE.

Once the show starts, your booth must remain manned at all times. Breaking down before 4:15 PM will constitute a surrender of your deposit.

There are a few additional documents for your review:

The first is our Exhibitor Information Packet. This will provide most of the general information that you will need and will answer most of the questions you may have.

Second is the Exhibitor Package from the Convention & Expo Management Services (CEMS). This will go into the fine details of what to expect during set-up, tear-down, and shipping to the Convention Center.

Finally, we have the Exhibitor Samples and Food Promotion Requests form. This goes in to more detail on the policies and procedures that you must follow if you wish to have food of any sort at the show. There is unfortunately very little leeway in this regard, so please be sure to read it carefully.

If you have any questions about any of the information provided here, please call us at the office (956) 687-5115.
