The Showcase is located between the West and the Skyline halls to ensure maximum attention from customers. The online New Product Showcase will be live in a few weeks.
There is no deadline to sign up, but showcases do sell out every year so don’t delay in reserving yours!
There are two steps to signing up, ordering and paying for the shelf(s) and going back into the Dashboard to add your product details. Your online listing will only appear after you have added your product information through the Dashboard.
You can add your product details and make edits by logging into the Exhibitor Dashboard and clicking on the Manage New Product Showcase tile – please add your details right after you have purchased a shelf to ensure maximum exposure to customers. After early-April we will pull the information to create your scan card so any changes after that will need to be made on site. Note that your shelf must contain only products introduced AFTER the 2018 Expo.
The new Packaging Innovation area will be within the showcase (and have the same details as below) but will be grouped on its own (not within the alpha of the new product section).
New Product Showcase Details:
- Items to be placed in the Showcase and materials for merchandising should be sent with your booth shipment or carried onsite. Exhibitors must set their own shelves.
- Cost of the showcase shelves are $475 each with a maximum of three.
- The shelves are approximately 38″ wide, 18.5″ deep and 15″ tall.
