New Orleans 2013 – Important Planning Information

Decorator Service Kit

The Decorator Exhibitor Kit comes to you from our official show decorator, Cardinal Expo. In this comprehensive document, you will find information regarding shipment of freight, order forms for booth set-up and instructions for nightly booth cleaning. It is very important that your company’s booth be set up on time for the opening of the Conference. You may make special arrangements for this service with the show’s decorator, as well as tear-down services, in case your travel arrangements prevent you from being there in person.

Exhibitor Service Kits

The Conference Exhibitor Kit contains very important information pertaining to your booth, the Exhibit Hall and all due dates for required submissions. Please contact me at any time if you have questions whatsoever. All required due dates for submissions must be met in order for the Conference planning process to go smoothly. If deadlines are not met for requested materials, those benefits of your sponsorship may be forfeited.

If you are a Sponsor, you will still need to submit the paperwork and your credit card information as a security deposit for the complimentary unit and to reserve any additional products.

Hotel Information

The host hotel is the Hilton New Orleans Riverside. To take advantage of our specially negotiated sleeping room rate, please click here to book your reservations into our Conference room block, or call the hotel at 1-800-445-8667 for reservations.

Please be advised that we do not authorize, or provide contact information, for third party hotel booking agencies. In the past, it has come to our attention that several exhibitors have received calls from Exhibitor Housing Services offering to book rooms for the New Orleans Investment Conference. Please note that this company, Exhibitor Housing Services, is not affiliated with the New Orleans Investment Conference, nor with the Hilton New Orleans Riverside. We have been in close contact with the hotel and have been informed that these types of companies will try to entice groups potentially staying at hotels to book into a block that they may (or may not) have secured at the hotel or move into a block they have (or may not have) reserved at another hotel.

For simplicity and credibility in booking, please be sure to utilize the links provided here to ensure that you receive the proper discounts available to New Orleans Conference attendees.

Thank you again for your support and participation in the 2013 New Orleans Investment Conference!
