What It Is
The CHA 2010 Summer Convention & Trade Show Designer Showcase gives CHA Designer members an opportunity to display their work and promote their creative services as Editors, Publishers and Manufacturers (EPMs) view their displays and consider their future project needs.
What It Is
The Designer members must register for a table by filling out the attached form to participate and display their work in the Showcase. Participating designers are encouraged to send personal pre-show invitations to industry contacts they would like to attend the Showcase event.
Showcase Designers will set-up their individual displays on Wednesday, July 28, 2010, from 11:00 am – 12:00 noon.
The Showcase will be open from 12:00 noon – 5:00 pm on Wednesday for private viewings by EPMs. Designers will not be permitted to stay in the Showcase room. Designers will be asked to return to the Showcase room from 5:00 pm-7:00 pm for a Meet and Greet. During the Meet and Greet Designers are asked to remain by their tables so EPMs can meet them as they look at their displays. After the Meet and Greet, Showcase teardown will take place from 7:00 pm-8:00 pm. There will be no hours reserved for individual appointments during this Showcase. All Showcase Designers should have a place at their display table for messages so EPMs who are interested in their work can contact them during the show.
If you have any questions, please contact Beth Watson at email@example.com.

ADDED EXPOSURE OPPORTUNITY – NEW!!!!:
An Exhibitor Lounge will be constructed on the Trade Show floor and open exclusively to exhibitors during show hours. The Exhibitor Lounge will house a gallery with a series of posters representing the creative work and designs of those participating in the Showcase. Designers who want to participate must bring a 24″ x 36″ laminated poster to the show with graphics that represent their work or their design style. The poster can include a brief bio, contact information, etc. You can also add a small pocket to your poster that can hold business cards. The options are limitless. The poster must have hooks or holes in the corners as we will be hanging the posters with “S” hooks and wire along a 45′ black drape wall. Providing a poster is not required but is a free opportunity to get your business more exposure.
