We can incorporate your Expo-related news releases into communications with trade media. Send your news to Cliff Treyens at ctreyens@ ngwa.org or contact Cliff at 800 551.7379 (614 898.7791 outside the United States), ext. 554, for additional information.
Manufacturers and suppliers who want to remain globally competitive in today’s economy can’t afford NOT to exhibit at the groundwater industry’s premier event. Consider the facts: Exhibiting demonstrates that you are a serious player in the industry and trade shows fill an essential marketing strategy when it comes to visibility. Memorability is a key factor associated with exhibiting and if you are not seen, how can you be remembered? You must focus on long-term results. You must continue to market in times of shortage, as your results will mirror your actions. Trade show exhibits are your #1 source for guaranteed sales opportunities. Trade shows are a more effective sales tool than magazine articles, friends/business contacts, directories/ catalogs, manufacturer representatives, and even on-site visits to potential customers.
Expanding international attendance Twenty-nine (29) countries were represented at the 62nd Annual Ground Water Expo, in addition to the United States: Argentina Australia Belgium Brazil Canada Chile China Colombia Denmark England
Ethiopia Germany Honduras India Italy Japan Luxembourg Mexico Netherlands New Zealand

Company letterhead measuring no larger than 81/2 x 11 may be used to post winners’ names.
Booth construction guidelines
Each exhibitor must be guaranteed reasonable sightlines from the aisle. Exhibits that interfere with their neighbors’ sightlines may be required to make adjustments. Standard booth: One or more standard units in a straight line. Booth backdrops are 8 feet in height and divider rails are 3 feet in height. Any part of the exhibit that extends 5 feet from the rear of the booth must not exceed 4 feet in height to assure reasonable sightlines. Perimeter wall booth: Standard booth located on the outer perimeter wall of the exhibit floor. Island booth: Exhibit of one company with multiple booths with an aisle on each of four sides; no backdrops or divider rails. Side views: The side frames of pop-up display booths must be covered with drape. Drape must be ordered from the service contractor. If violations are found after the exhibitor has left the setup, drape will be installed by the service contractor and billed to the exhibitor.
Official service contractor
In the interest of safety, continuity, security, and control, the following are understood as exclusive services provided through the official service contractor: drayage, rigging, electrical, plumbing, and custom cleaning. The service manual containing complete details on all services offered to exhibitors, as well as order forms and shipping instructions, will be made available to confirmed exhibitors approximately 90 days prior to the show. After the initial mailing, manuals will be sent to exhibitors as NGWA notifies the official service contractor of their assignment. In addition to supplying furniture, electrical, and other items you might need for your booth, the service contractor handles freight storage and delivery to the hall, determines union jurisdiction, arranges for electrical and plumbing services, sets up the pipe and drape, and performs the myriad of other services necessary before the exhibitors arrive to set up.
Freight: The exhibiting company must make its own arrangements for delivery and receipt of shipments and storage of crates with the official service contractor before move-in. The Las Vegas Convention Center will NOT accept or store exhibit materials or empty crates. All freight charges must be prepaid. Fire regulations prohibit the storage of empty crates and cartons within the exhibitor’s display area. Crates and cartons will be stored by the official service contractor and returned to the booth at the end of the show.
Booth setup/union jurisdiction
Full-time employees of the exhibiting company may install and/or dismantle the company’s own booth, in its assigned exhibit space, provided it has met all the requirements of show management and the facility. Any work outside its assigned space, including the handling of freight or equipment to the booth, is prohibited—except for handcarried items. Exhibitors may hand-carry items to their assigned space; however, they may not use wheels, carts, or hand trucks nor enter through the freight doors. Only union workers are allowed to bring freight through the freight doors. The Teamsters Union is responsible for the loading and unloading of all trucks or trailers or common and contract carriers, as well as the handling of empty crates and the operation of forklift trucks. They also have jurisdiction over the loading and unloading of individual company vehicles. Further, the Teamsters have the responsibility for unloading, crating, unskidding, leveling, cleaning, and assembling of machinery and equipment. Their jurisdiction also covers the stated operations in reverse order for the removal of the equipment. Parking on the loading dock is prohibited. As soon as vehicles are unloaded at the freight door by union workers, the vehicles must be parked in authorized areas. Violators will be towed at their expense. If exhibitors need help, they must hire union workers through the service contractor. They cannot hire temporary workers. The Electrical Workers Union is responsible for supplying all feed wiring and electrical conductors to each exhibit. This union will also be responsible for all other electrical work in exhibits including, but not limited to, such items as motor hook-up, pulling, and hook-up of electrical or signal wire and cables.
If an exhibitor hires a contractor other than the official service contractor to install and/or dismantle its exhibit, the exhibitor is required to notify NGWA of that company’s name, address, and all other details. This is the responsibility of the exhibitor, not the company hired. Notifications must be on file at NGWA 30 days prior to the show. If the company you hire doesn’t normally work in the Las Vegas Convention Center, it could take them several months to meet the requirements for paperwork and fees before they would be admitted to work in the Las Vegas Convention Center.
The Las Vegas Convention Center prohibits any attachment or installation of materials of any kind to the walls, ceilings, columns, floors, or other common areas of its facility, inside or outdoors. No propane tanks are allowed in the building. No helium gas or helium balloons are allowed to enter the building. All food items and novelties must be arranged through the facility’s exclusive concessonaire.
Fire and safety regulations
Exhibitors and their design houses must observe strict compliance with Las Vegas fire regulations. It is the responsiblity of each exhibitor to check the regulations for the Las Vegas Convention Center if there is any question whatsoever regarding its display. All exhibits must pass fire marshal inspection before the exhibit hall can open. The fire marshal has the authority to close any exhibit which is in violation of regulations, or to close the entire show at his/her discretion. If an exhibitor is cited for violations and show management cannot reach the contact person, the service contractor is authorized to make the corrections at the expense of the exhibitor. If corrections are not possible, the display will be removed so the exhibit hall may open on time. Vehicles displayed in exhibit hall must have the battery cables disconnected. The gas tank must be taped shut or have a lockable gas cap and may contain no more than 10 (ten) gallons or one-eighth (1/8) tank of fuel, whichever is less.

Eligibility Current corporate members of the NGWA manufacturers and suppliers divisions qualify. Membership must be paid at the time the standings are compiled and also at the time the application is received.
Criteria for points Corporate members of the NGWA manufacturers and suppliers divisions accumulate points as follows: 10 points for each year of consecutive membership in the manufacturers and/or suppliers divisions 5 points for each year of participation in the Ground Water Expo 1 point for each booth or bulk space contracted for at the previous Ground Water Expo In the event two or more companies have the same number of points, priority standings are determined by date and time application is received.
Top 10 drawing To avoid the possibility of the same company always having the first choice in space selection, the first 10 choices each year go to companies whose names have been drawn at a lottery during the exhibitors meeting at the previous year’s exposition. A company representative must be present at the priority system drawing to claim that firm’s drawing for one of the top 10 choices.
What is the deadline to claim priority standing? June 1 is the deadline for applications and correct payment to be on the desk of the expositions manager in order to claim priority standings. Membership must be current at the time the application is received.
Forfeiture of priority standing Companies whose applications are received after June 1 forfeit their priority standing.
