2008 CSU Facilities Management Conference

Information Exchange – Exhibitor Booths/Nautilus

All sponsors have the option to secure an exhibitor booth via the online sponsor application. As an exhibitor, you will have the opportunity to showcase your company’s products and services to an anticipated audience of 350 facilities professionals. There will be approximately 45 exhibit booths.

Please consider the selection criteria in completing your application. We are looking for exhibitors whose business complements a session track and the conference theme: Building Relationships. The conference provides a venue for facilities professionals to learn how your business can help them succeed in building a university that is responsive to tomorrow's students and the ever-changing workforce environment.

The priority application period will run through June 30. Booth location will be determined on a first come first serve basis, once sponsorship payment has been received.

The conference exhibit hall will be housed in the Nautilus (all associated space) in the Sheraton San Diego Hotel and Marina property. The exhibit hall is directly downstairs (one flight) from general session and breakout session rooms.

Exhibitor Service Contractor

The official service decorator contractor for the conference exhibit hall is Freeman. Furniture, electricity (beyond basic 5 amp), lighting, booth set-up and tear-down, and drayage must be arranged through this company. A complete Exhibitor's Service Kit will be provided to each exhibitor by Freeman after payment is received.

Booth Giveaways/Raffle

Exhibitors are encouraged to plan drawings or provide takeaway items. If you would like to provide raffle items to the conference management, we will handle the drawings in the exhibit hall during an Information Exchange session and give your company recognition.
