Day of Logistics & Expo Tips

Sonesta Hotel offers free parking for vendors & guests.

Before entering the ballroom and looking for your booth, please check in at the front desk. A Bridal Ball staff member will show you to your booth location.

The expo space will have wireless internet. An internet code will be provided to you the day of the expo.

Only the vendors who requested an electrical outlet during registration will have a location with an outlet. If you plug into an outlet the day of the expo without ordering one in advance, you will be charged by the hotel. Electrical outlets must be ordered prior to the expo.

Vendors must dress to impress. No jeans and no sneakers allowed. This is a luxury bridal expo; please dress like a luxury bridal vendor.

There will be a lot of standing so please wear comfortable shoes.

Please bring lunch/snacks with you. It is advised to bring food and water with you since it will be a long day and all booth spaces cannot be left unattended.

If you will be providing food samples at your booth, we need to know in advance.

VIP brides will receive early admission into the expo, starting at 1pm. This is your chance to talk with the VIP brides before the crowd rushes in. General admission starts at 2pm. Please make sure your booth is fully set-up by 1pm in order to make a positive impression on the VIP brides.

We understand that Atlanta has a great deal of traffic and being late can sometimes not be avoided, but we ask that all vendors plan ahead. If you do not check-in by 12:00PM your booth space will be broken down and all money paid will be forfeited. It looks unprofessional to be setting up your booth in front of the brides. Check-in ends at 12:00PM, all booths must be set-up by 12:30PM, doors open at 1:00PM. No excuses.
