Exhibitor Information:

The exhibitor at Brides 2018 has a unique opportunity to showcase products and services. Guests leisurely stroll through the spacious, elegantly-decorated Three Rivers Convention Center Great Hall and Lobby with vendors and commercial exhibits strategically placed for maximum interaction opportunity with attendees.

Creativity in the design of exhibition space is encouraged! There are no rows of “pipe and drape” booths. The exhibit hall is draped with black to better feature your booth design. Rectangular or oval black-skirted tables are available for use, as are freestanding display spaces. We will do everything we can to accommodate your marketing vision.

We attempt to accommodate exhibitors desiring adjoining spaces. Only one business may be represented per space. A maximum of four vendor passes will be granted per space. To identify unregistered solicitors we ask you to operate within your identified location. Please let us know if your marketing strategy requires the ability to roam the event. We encourage you to register early to lock in a preferred location.

Because of your sterling reputation within your industry we are asking you to share your experience, creativity and assistance in providing personal attention to a large audience of soon-to-be brides and grooms during Brides.

“[Brides] is truly is a launching pad for our industry and I am grateful to be involved. The brides attending this show are focused and ready to schedule appointments. Each year has proven to be better than the last for Flowers by Kim, and again this year I booked more consultations than the previous year. Thank you for your vision and hard work! ”
– Kim Johnson, Flowers by Kim
