Setting up for the Vendor Expo?

Vendor Expo (Tabletop) Information: 


Space is limited, so we ask that the furniture suppliers, especially those with a Las Vegas showroom, not request a table. The tables were originally intended for use by service and product suppliers who were not showing at the the Vegas Market. The Symposium is all about networking, and we would rather not increase your cost by being an exhibit-based event. But, whether you have a table for literature or not, you are encouraged to walk around the reception and mingle with the crowd.

If you are planning to have a tabletop display* at the Symposium, please contact Margee Bauer at 336/885-0866, ext. 92 or margeeb@fmgbuyinggroup.com by January 7 to confirm and reserve your table. Any electrical, A/V and/or internet needs MUST be contracted directly through The Cosmopolitan’s Tristan McMahill. Her direct line is (702) 698-1318.
