BOOTH ASSIGNMENT AND PRIORITY POINT PROCESS

Booth space for the trade show is assigned in priority point order first, and then on a first-come, first-served basis after all priority point assignments have been completed. Trade show management will contact you five business days prior to your space selection process.

PRIORITY POINTS DEADLINE

The priority point deadline is June 15, 2018 Each exhibit space contract with deposit received on or before June 15, is allotted space on the basis of the Golf Industry Show trade show priority point system. Exhibit space contracts received after June 15, are assigned on a first-come, first-served basis.

PRIORITY POINTS

Priority points can be earned in the following way:

Points are earned for money invested with GCSAA, EIFG or NGCOA in eligible programs and services. Additionally, a half (.5) point is awarded for every over-night stay booked at a hotel property in the Golf Industry Show room block.

Priority points for 2019 will be based on total dollars accumulated from March 1, 2017 to Feb. 28, 2018.

ASSIGNMENT OF POINTS

Exhibitor priority points will be assigned to the company that earns them.

PRIORITY POINTS AS AN ASSET

Exhibitor priority points are considered an asset of the company and as such are purchased along with the company. If GCSAA and NGCOA are provided written documentation by a parent company showing ownership of another company with priority points, the company’s points can be transferred to the parent company.

CHOICE OF EXHIBIT SPACE

Exhibitor priority points may be accumulated for placement on the priority point booth space assignment list. The resultant choice of exhibit space is based on the following:

  • The parent company will contract for space and pay for it.
  • The parent company will determine how its exhibit is listed in association publications.
  • The overall length of the booth configuration must not exceed 50%, or a 2-to-1 ratio, of the overall width of the booth on main aisle frontage.
  • An exhibitor may choose only one booth space per contract submitted. A booth space is defined as a single 10’ x 10’ or any combination of adjacent
  • 10’ x 10’ spaces, resulting in the creation of one contiguous space (given one booth number) unbroken by an aisle. An exhibitor may contract for more than one booth space, but must complete and submit a space contract and deposit for each desired booth space. Only one booth space may be chosen using priority points. Subsequent booth space will be chosen on a first-come, first-served basis.
  • An exhibitor may not bridge a main aisle, whether by a physical structure, carpeting, banners, etc., in order to connect its booth space with one across the aisle.

SPACE ASSIGNMENT

  • If more than one company holds the same number of priority points, the date the contract is received will determine which company shall have the first choice of booth space selection.
  • Requests for space after the priority point cutoff date will be processed on a first-come, first-served basis regardless of priority points.
  • No exhibitor can lose space assigned in accordance with this procedure.
  • Space will be assigned on the written facts available to GCSAA and NGCOA on the cutoff date.
  • GCSAA and NGCOA will make every effort to accommodate exhibitor requirements. Any and all requests will be considered. However, it is our intent to accommodate exhibitors in a manner that will enable each to exhibit its products under the most favorable conditions. All final decisions in dispute rest with trade show management.
