- South Towne Exposition Center prohibits exhibitors giving away water or drinks at the events. Candy bowls are permissible, but if you are dealing with food (other than sample size), application must be received by Utah Food Services (the caterer contracted with South Towne) 1 month prior to the Event to get permission.
- You must also check with the Salt Lake Valley Health Department, (Right Click, choose “Open Hyperlink”) after you are approved with the caterer, to find out if a temporary Food Handler’s Permit is required – it depends on the food. ( A temporary permit may be required for the Event even if you have a current food handler’s permit now) Permits must be applied for at least two weeks before the event. SLVHD is located at 788 E. Wood Oak Lane, Murray, UT Call: (385) 468-3845
- For an application to hand out sample portions of food at your booth, see the 2 pages at the end of this packet. Food products in sealed containers and not consumed on the South Towne Expo premises do not need special permits.
- SET-UP (Move-in) is Thursday, April 14th between 10 a.m. and 7 p.m. The hall will remain open until 8:30 pm for exhibitors who wish to see other booths and mingle with other exhibitors. The Event will be in Exhibit Halls 4 and 5 (north side). Come to the main loading dock entrance (east side). There will be a table for Check-in, information, booth location, and pick-up of your exhibitor packet that will include 3 exhibitor badges and 4 complimentary, first day (Friday) admission passes per booth. Sponsor packets will contain appropriate level badges and tickets.
- OPENING: Doors for exhibitors will open at 8 a.m. both days. The show will open to the public at 9 a.m. on Friday and Saturday and close at 8 p.m. on Friday and Saturday.
- PARKING: During set-up and take-down, you may park in the South Towne Parking Lot. Parking at the South Towne Exposition Center is free, however parking fills up quickly. Although there is limited parking on the northeast side of the Exposition center we ask that exhibitors park on the west side of State Street (across the street from the Expo Center), south of Crown Burger during the Event days. It’s important that attendees can access the closest spots. Several of your customers can park throughout the day in one stall or one stall can hold your one car all day! (Awkward sentence, but if you visualize it, you should be laughing!)
- TAKE-DOWN will be any time after 8:30 p.m. (must finish by 10:30 p.m.) on Saturday. No take-downs until the end of the event and the public has vacated.
