Thank you for being an exhibitor and/or sponsor at the upcoming 2019 TMSA Logistics Marketing & Sales Conference. It all takes place June 9-12 at the beautiful Omni Amelia Island Plantation Resort just north of Jacksonville, Florida.

There are seven important steps for you to take as you prepare for your participation at this event:

1. Make sure to have your individual team members formally registered by TMSA Headquarters. If you've purchased an "Exhibit Only" package, you receive one paid registration to the conference. If you're a sponsor, you receive multiple comped registrations as part of your package (depending upon your level of sponsorship). Email Brian Everett at [email protected] with the names of individuals who will be attending and we will get them registered. 

2. Ensure you've reserved your hotel rooms at the Omni Amelia Island Plantation Resort. TMSA has negotiated a discounted room rate for this beautiful ocean-front property, but our room block is selling fast. Reserve your rooms today.

3. Order any needed Electric, A/V, or equipment you need. If you're an exhibitor, as you prepare your booth presence remember that your 8' X 8' booth space includes black pipe & drape, one 6-foot skirted display table, two padded chairs, one wastebasket with liner, and an Identification Sign with your company name. The ballroom will be carpeted, so no need for carpet rental. Download Exhibitor Manual if you need to order custom furniture, audio/visual, or electrical. Internet service will be provided. 

Shipping, storage, furniture, plans, labor, or other questions? Contact Stephanie Placeres, Goben Convention Services at 407-872-2223 (Voice), 407-872-8644 (Fax), or [email protected].  

4. Provide your Corporate Profile (no more than 100 words)
 for the Conference Program and Membership Directory. Please send to Brian Everett at [email protected] no later than May 5. Corporate Profiles received after this date cannot be guaranteed that they'll be included in the Conference Program. 

5. Need to send packages in advance of the conference? See shipping instructions in the Exhibitor Manual.

6. TMSA will feature a Island Game Card to encourage exhibitor traffic to your booth. How does this work? During scheduled Expo Times, attendees will go to each booth and have their TMSA Island Game Card initialed. Once they have it completed, they'll turn it into the Registration Desk for random prize drawings that will take place Tuesday afternoon during the final Marketing & Sales Expo time block. You can donate a prize to amplify your presence in the Expo, as all donated prized and the donating exhibitor will be featured on the Game Card. (Past prizes have included: wireless bluetooth speaker, Fitbit, $50 or $100 Gift Cards from Amazon, Visa, etc. If you're interested in donating a prize, let Brian Everett know by May 15 with the donated prize and street value - and get creative!

7. Lastly, get acclimated with the schedule of events. Here is a list of key events you'll want to be aware of:

  • Orchestrate any activities with your VIP clients, prospects, and/or team members prior to the conference on Sunday, June 9 - or after the conference Wednesday, June 12. View options for you to consider.
