This kit includes forms for shipping and for ordering items such as electrical service, internet, A/V equipment, and additional furnishings. The exhibit space is carpeted; it will NOT be necessary to purchase carpet for your booth. Please read information in the kit carefully to avoid unnecessary late charges and/or set-up fees and order early to avoid on-site costs.
Registration for your Exhibitor Badge is CLOSED and will open 6 weeks prior to the Trade Show. Companies can request up to 8 badges per booth. Please email Jenny Early with questions.

Continuing Education & Special Events
Exhibitors are welcome to attend the seminars at Conference for informational purposes. Your badge grants you complimentary access. Exhibitors needing continuing education for a license can register and pay a reduced fee of $100 by completing a special Exhibitor Registration form. This form may also be used to register for special events not included in booth fees, such as the Fun Night and Awards Luncheon. Stay tuned for registration information.
Prizes and Prize Announcements
Exhibitors are encouraged to bring a prize to offer as a give-away from their booth. A list of prizes will be published in the conference materials for attendees to review. Contact Jenny Early to get your prize on the list! PRIZE INFORMATION MUST BE SUPPLIED TO FHCA BY JULY 5, 2013 TO MEET THE PUBLICATION DEADLINE. Onsite, exhibitors will collect business cards from attendees at their booths and draw their own winners. FHCA will post a listing of the prize winners during the show, but attendees must claim their prizes from exhibitors. Exhibitors are responsible for delivering unclaimed prizes.
Pre- and Post-Conference Attendee Lists
Each exhibitor will be e-mailed a list of all conference attendees in an Excel format, approximately three weeks in advance of the Trade Show and three weeks after. Additional lists can be supplied upon request.
FHCA Associate Memberships are available to companies and individuals who provide goods and services to long term care facilities. Associate Membership benefits include priority booth selection, listing in the annual FHCA Membership Directory & Buyers’ Guide, and the Online Buyers’ Guide, newsletter subscription, select membership mailings, and eligibility to participate in state and district activities. There is also an Associate Member seat on FHCA’s Board of Directors. For those interested in FHCA Associate Membership, review the Exhibit Costs section of the Exhibit Contract to see how you can save money by joining as an Associate Member.
Associate Member Support Committee (AMSC)
FHCA Associate Members may also join the Associate Member Support Committee (AMSC) for an additional $150 per year. Members of the AMSC consult with FHCA committees on the Annual Conference Trade Show and other vendor activities. AMSC members receive priority choice on booth space and special recognition in FHCA publications and on signage at events. They also assist with the planning of all FHCA vendor activities. Members of the AMSC who have purchased booth space in the Trade Show will be listed on the exclusive AMSC “Good Guys” game card. To be eligible for cash prizes, attendees visit each AMSC booth. Members of the AMSC have found this to be an ideal way to encourage conference attendees to visit their booths and foster productive business relationships. TO BE LISTED ON THE AMSC “GOOD GUYS” GAME CARD, YOUR BOOTH PAYMENT, ASSOCIATE MEMBER DUES, AND AMSC DUES MUST BE RECEIVED BY FRIDAY, JUNE 14, 2013. AMSC dues can be included with booth payment on the Exhibit Contract.
