We appreciate your interest in the 2019 Airport Experience® Conference. Below you will find answers to some frequently asked questions. Don't see the answer you need? Please reach out to us - we're happy to help!
Your registration experience includes the following items:
The Airport Experience® Conference provides a multitude of networking opportunities to connect with a highly-coveted audience, comprised of hard-to-reach airport decision-makers and food and retail executives.
We encourage attendees to wear business-casual attire during the day and cocktail attire for evening events, such as the Opening Night Reception and the AXN Awards Gala.
The Opening Night Reception is the must-attend, high-energy kickoff of the conference. It is a premier networking opportunity and a chance to experience the offerings of exhibitors and sponsors.
The Schmooze Sessions are brief, speed dating-like meetings where attendees have a great opportunity to meet face-to-face with participating airport representatives, developers, and food and retail operators. To qualify to participate in the Schmooze Sessions, you must already be a registered conference attendee.
Those who have registered will receive an email invitation to participate in the Schmooze Sessions with the date and time when the selection process will go live.
While we do not provide transportation from the airport, McCarran International Airport is 3 miles from Caesars Palace and is taxi and ridesharing service friendly.
As a registered exhibitor you should have received an exhibitor kit from Paul Angelino at US Tradeshows. This manual contains all of the information you need to order these items directly from US Tradeshows, as well as need-to-know information on the conference & exhibition. To contact Paul Angelino directly, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Details coming soon.
While it varies based on the complexity of your booth/exhibit-space layout, we recommend that you allow yourself ample time to set up your space. ALL booths must be ready for the show by 5:00PM on Monday evening. Any booths not yet set up will incur forced labor costs by AXN and US Tradeshows, in order to finish the installation.
While we encourage all exhibitors to continuously have their booths manned, there are peak hours during which we suggest your booths be appropriately staffed and there will be optimal periods to sample. If you are sampling or serving food and/or drink:
Booth tear-down begins on Wednesday afternoon at 2:30PM. Due to the continuous flow of attendees and business being conducted on the show floor, early teardowns are strictly prohibited and subject to fines.
Engage, engage, engage. Speak to as many airports and operators as you come across, regardless of whether you feel they are someone you would be interested in partnering with. The airport food and retail industry is a very close-knit community. You never know when or where an introduction will be made or an opportunity will be revealed.
As an exhibitor, sample or raffle. If you are a food concept, sample your product or showcase its preparation. Collect business cards to do a prize drawing and work with us to announce winners in the Experience Hall.
We offer an exclusive early-bird exhibitor rate to those that sign up for the conference early and pay the 50% deposit by April 16, 2019. To secure your booth space, please stop by the 2019 show office during office hours and secure your participation with our business development team.
