Exhibit Hall Floorplan: Please note, MAS is reworking the exhibit hall floorplan. We anticipate receiving the new floor plan next week. Once the floor plan is complete, Yamaiky Gamez will email the floor plan to all our vendors and exhibitors to take note of your top 3 preferred booth locations. Some booths will be highlighted as priority booths. MAS Affiliate Partners will have first choice for priority booths. Bulk space/equipment will be spread out through the booth rows. Affiliate Partners receive a 10% discount on bulk space. In order to purchase bulk space, you must purchase a booth. MAS will email you your final booth assignment by June 5.

Invoices: MAS will be working on sending final invoices in the next couple of weeks. Please note, prepayment is not required. You may note on your registration form if you would like to receive an email link to pay your invoice by credit card online or if you wish to be billed and receive invoice in the mail. You will be billed based on the date MAS receives your registration form at the MAS office (793 North President Street, Jackson, MS 39202).

Exhibitor Notes

Exhibitors must check in at MAS Registration Desk and pick up booth packets before entering the Exhibit Hall. Each attendee must sign in and pick up his/her own name badge. Two complimentary t-shirts will be provided per company attendees.

Booth Assignments: MAS reserves the absolute right to assign all exhibit space, and the decision of MAS regarding assignment, reassignment or rearrangement is final. Exhibitor acknowledges that booth selections above are not guaranteed for final assignment. Booth assignment will be solely MAS’ decision. MAS will email you your final booth assignment by June 5. CDS (company setting up booths) will then email you a vendor packet with additional booth information and a form to add additional furnishings and electricity to your booth. You will be responsible to work directly with CDS on these orders.

Please note, the exhibit hall floor layout is not complete, but MAS will follow up at a later date with an updated exhibit hall layout and your request for your top 3 booth preference.

Booth Set up: You may begin setting up on Monday, June 12 at 1:00 pm until 4:00 pm, and Tuesday, June 13 from 8:00 am - 10:00 am.

Exhibit Hall Hours: Exhibit Hall will open Tuesday, June 13,2023 from 9:30 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. and Wednesday, June 14,2023 from 7:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Exhibitors must check in at Registration Desk and complete booth setup by 10:00 a.m., Tuesday, June 13,2023. 

Booth Breakdown: Exhibitors may not dismantle booths before 3:00 p.m., Wednesday, June 15, 2023. Per Convention Center policy, we must break down and move out of the exhibit hall by 5:00 pm. Early departure may incur a $200 penalty. Excessive trash may also incur penalty fees.

Bulk/Equipment Display: Please note, if you plan on bringing equipment, you will have to set up your equipment early at your designated time by CDS on Sunday, June 11 due to equipment having to be set up before CDS can set up booths. If you miss your designated time, you run the risk that your equipment will have to be set up outdoors, or possibly in E1. A minimum of 10 x 30 or 300 sq ft is required for purchasing bulk space. CDS will tape out your bulk space. If your equipment space is more than what is listed on your registration form, additional fees will be incurred. Per Convention Center policy, equipment must be removed by Wednesday, June 15 at 5:00 pm.

Bulk space is limited so it will be first come, first serve. Onsite cost for bulk space will be $3 per square feet. Booth purchase is required.

Hospitality Suites: If you are interested in hosting a hospitality suite, please contact Yamaiky Gamez at Space is available at the Hardrock Hotel and the Beau Rivage Hotel. You must be registered to attend the Convention in order to host a hospitality suite. Please email Yamaiky if you would like to list your hospitality suite in the MAS final program.

Door Prizes Request: Exhibitors are encouraged to give away door prizes at their booth, as this helps attract crowds to the show.  Exhibitors may bring their door prizes to the MAS onsite registration desk to be drawn and presented by MAS during the educational breakout sessions. Door prizes donated to MAS will be given away during the Educational Sessions. Exhibitors doing drawings at their booth are required to handle the delivery to the winner, or at their discretion, may draw another winner from their booth.
