The purpose of the product showcase is to give RDIA members (particularly diaper service operators and retailers that might not attend the ABC show) the opportunity to see diapering and other baby related products.
Manufacturers have the opportunity to showcase their product(s) to a targeted audience.
Who is eligible to participate in the Product Showcase?
Any RDIA member (all categories), associate or sponsor.
What can be included in the Product Showcase?
Diapering and baby related products. Exception: no disposable products.
How Much Space Do I Get?
Each participant will be given a tabletop space 24” wide by 30” deep by 36” tall. Products, catalog/price lists and business cards can be displayed. If someone has a product that exceeds these dimensions (ie. a hamper), it needs to be noted on the order form. Each exhibitor will be provided with a table top tent sign listing the name of their business and contact information at the conference (cell phone or email) so businesses can connect during the conference if they would like to.
What Are The Hours of The Product Showcase?
The Product Showcase will be open during non-session hours on Tuesday, September 27 beginning with registration/breakfast at 8:00 am. The official schedule on Tuesday will conclude with a member social and product showcase viewing. We ask that those with products in the showcase refrain from entering the showcase during the showcase period. This is to allow the retailers to browse products in a non pressure environment and is also meant to eliminate potential competitive issues between vendors. We thank you in advance for your cooperation.
*Set up will be Tuesday morning from 7:00 to 7:45 am. Tear down will be Tuesday at 7:30 pm.
What is The Cost To participate?
$200 before August 15; $250 after August 15
Non-Member (sponsor): $500 before August 15; $600 after August 15
Can I Still Participate If I’m Not Attending The Conference?
Yes, if you would like to have a product in the product showcase and will not be attending the conference, you can mail your products, brochures, business cards and props to:
Crowne Plaza Louisville
c/o Judy Aagard
830 Philips Lane
Louisville, KY 40209
Include a picture of how you would like your set up to look. Mail so it is received by Friday, September 23 (at the latest). After the conference, we will donate your products to a local charity. We will take a picture of your display and email it to you.
This sounds great! How do I reserve a space?
