Show hours on Sunday do not end until 5 PM.  As a policy, Exhibitors that pack up early during show hours may be banned from exhibiting at future events.  We will not tolerate holes in the show out of respect for our attendees.  Contact our Expo Manager, Jess, if you have a concern at 717-932-1487 or pagardenexpo@nariofcentralpa.com.

PARKING

The Pennsylvania Farm Show Complex provides (2) parking passes per exhibiting company.  A parking fee is not charged during set up days.  Parking passes will be distributed upon Exhibitor Check-In during event set-up.

The Pennsylvania Garden Expo management team respectfully asks that you do not park in locations that would be considered near the entrance to the North Hall during show hours.  We realize that this involves a longer walk to the entrance of the building but we need to save as many parking spaces as possible for our attendees.  We all want happy attendees so please be considerate.

EXHIBITOR BADGES

Maximum of 6 badges per Exhibitor will be issued. Please submit names prior to the event.  Badges will be distributed upon Exhibitor Check-In during event set-up.

ELECTRIC

Electric is available at all booths.  You MUST supply your own power strip AND extension cords. 

INTERNET

The Pennsylvania Farm Show Complex offers free wireless internet services throughout the facility.  As with any Wi-Fi service, the connectivity level will vary due to your location and other variables.  While the service is free, we cannot guarantee that it will always be available.  IF YOU REQUIRE INTERNET TO CONDUCT BUSINESS, WE STRONLY RECOMMEND THAT YOU INSTALL A WIRED CONNECTION.  Contact our Expo Manager, Jess at 717-932-1487 or pagardenexpo@nariofcentralpa.org for more information on obtaining a wired internet connection.

BOOTH DECORATION & ACCESSORIES

Tables, chairs, and carpeting are not included in your booth fee but may be ordered through the show decorator at your cost. Service is provided by General Exposition Services.  Show Decorator Kit Link. Use password Garden15.

DRAYAGE: The contracted show decorator General Exposition Services is equipped to handle your shipments of product to the PA Farm Show Complex. This is an optional service and complete details may be found by accessing the decorator kit

ICE SERVICE

The Pennsylvania Farm Show Complex’s caterer will provide a daily delivery of ice to your booth if arranged in advance.  The cost is $6/bag.

All sound producing or amplifying devices must be kept at an appropriate level so as to not interfere with surrounding exhibitors.

FIRE CODES

No propane tanks or use of propane inside hall, no lit candles or open flames of any time are permitted by order of the Fire Marshall.

SOLICITATION / SALES LITERATURE

No sales solicitation or distribution of literature outside of your contracted booth space.

DEMONSTRATIONS

When offering sampling, demonstrations, or giveaways, your booth must be arranged so that attendees coming into your exhibit do not block aisles or overlap into neighboring exhibits.  Aisles are property of all exhibitors; therefore, each exhibitor has the responsibility to assure proper flow of traffic through the entire expo.

PA SALES TAX

The department of revenue will be visiting the show to be sure that they have all of the tax information that they need. Please be sure to provide your tax ID number in advance to avoid any issues at the show.

The State of Pennsylvania requires that any exhibitor selling merchandise obtain a permanent Pennsylvania sales tax license.  If you intend to sell merchandise at this event you must provide us with your PA Sales Tax number.  We are required by state law to provide an Exhibitor listing to the PA Department of Revenue.  If you have any questions or need tax forms please visit their website:

Secrets to Success

Three must know secrets for a successful show:

What’s for sale here?

During the crucial first minutes where you’re checking out the attendee, they’re checking you out. They are, perhaps unconciously, assessing what they perceive as your intentions and motivations. Few people believe that they can get a good deal from someone they do not believe to be a good person.

Secret: People have to ‘buy’ you before they can buy your products.

Can you hear what I’m saying?

Standing at the corner of your booth exhibit with your arms folded tells attendees “Stay away! I’m on guard.” Sitting down, flipping through a magazine, or chatting with colleagues says “I’ve got better things to do.” All togther, it means “You’re not important to me,” even if you ask the attendees what you can do for them today.

Secret: People won’t come in if your body language says “Go away!”

The Wall of Noise

Talking is important, but listening is more so. Shift the focus from your own sales spiel to actually listening to the customer and you’ll find your results immediately improve. Ask attendees questions, and listen to their answers. Give them your full attention. Hear what they’re saying and offer appropriate responses.

Secret: Focus on the attendee for maximum results.
