The Penticton Trade & Convention Centre asks that delegates ensure their items arrive no earlier than Friday, May 5, 2017. Delegates must also have their waybill with them for return shipping.

To ship from the Penticton Trade & Convention Centre on Wednesday, May 10, your items can be left for pick up at the registration desk. Your shipment needs to be ready for shipment and must have shipping instructions including your waybill for the courier company of your choice.

Booth Set-Up

All companies are “stationary” during ABM appointment periods and are provided with a 8′ x 10′ trade show booth (black pipe and drape), a 6′ table, tablecloth and four chairs.

Wifi access and power are provided at each booth.

The tradeshow booth functions as the Exhibitor’s office. How the space is set up is up to the exhibitor. Video without audio is permitted.

Representatives of communities do NOT have a booth and move through the trade show from appointment to appointment.

IMPORTANT FOR EXHIBITORS: When companies have appointments with other companies one of the parties needs to leave its booth. If your appointment schedule shows a booth number, you need to meet your business match at its booth.

Move-In and Move-Out

On Tuesday, May 9, set-up commences at 8:00 a.m. and ABM starts with the opening breakfast at 09.00 am. The first appointment takes place on the trade show floor will be at 10:30 a.m. SHARP.

Booth numbers correspond to numbers detailed in the appointment schedule. After each appointment, music is played and community representatives move on to the next booth and the next appointment as detailed in their schedules.

Trade Show Etiquette

ABM appointments are treated just like any other meeting in a business setting. It is expected that ABM Delegates are on time and prepared. Delegates are asked to efficiently move from appointment to appointment in order to allow the next meeting to take place.


ABM Delegates are expected to attend all appointments in their schedule. If, for some unexpected reason, an appointment cannot be honoured, ABM Delegates are expected to use the e-message centre to communicate, cancel and reschedule the meeting. All ABM Delegates are provided with a no-show report sheet that can be submitted to the event management team at the end of each trade show day.

No-shows may result in the rejection of future ABM applications.
