Exhibitor Information

Fairplex California in Pomona, California

All exhibitor information is listed below, but please feel free to call us anytime at 801.822.1333 with questions.

Show Supplier/Decorator

You can supply your own booth items but we do have an excellent decorator/supplier in Raphaels Convention Services. Click here for Raphaels 2021 Exhibitor Kit. Jamie can help you with any questions also at jamie@raphaels.com or 858.689.7368x104. Your booth is simply your space with black piper and drape (8' back wall and 3' sides) and the decorator can supply everything else except electrical or internet connections (see below). Many commonly ordered items include draped tables, chairs and carpet.
* Material handing fees can be expensive. Be sure to know the costs before you ship or receive items for the show.


Electrical hook-ups can be ordered from our electrical contractor and information will be posted here as the show approaches.


Wifi or hardline internet can be ordered in advance from Fairplex. Rates are good at between $30-85 per device (wireless) with other options available as well. Please see their internet rate sheet here. E-mail Barbara Martinez at bmartinez@fairplex.com or call 909.865.4144 to order internet.

Booth Design Rules

All booth components must be within the allotted space (nothing in the isles) unless pre-approved. Anything deemed unsafe in the opinion of the expo organizer (such as tipping hazards) will be required to change. As a courtesy, if you have tall side-walls please tell us about them before the show so that we can group tall walls near each other. The provided drape rods will support normal banners but in general are not to be used as booth support. Helium balloons can be used, but only if they are attached securely to your booth. Please do not hand out helium balloons. Banners may be rigged from the ceiling at your expense but must fit within the allotted booth space below them.

Shipping & Material Handling

Shipping address:
Pinners Conference at Fairplex
Hall 4

Once delivered to the city, fees for handling your materials can be expensive. Be sure to know the costs before you ship or receive anything on site at the show. Raphaels Convention Services, Fairplex or Pinners may be able to help you with materials shipped to the facility.

There is good parking at Fairplex. It is at a $15 rate. You'll be directed as you enter, but parking for set-up is right around Hall 4. Parking for regular days is through Gate 17 off of Fairplex Dr. and McKinley Ave. Trailers may also be parked overnights (for a fee) through Gate 17, Lot F.


We will give each exhibiting business a class punch card good for 2 classes each day of the show. You can use or pass around this card as you wish, and these are passes for 'stand-by' only. Class passes above these two classes each day will need to be purchased.

Raffle & Swag

Raffle Prize
As an exhibitor you can also contribute a raffle prize to be given away at our VIP night kick-off party and we will help promote your business without any additional cash cost to you. Raffle prizes must be valued at $50 or more and end up being highly- talked about items throughout the weekend. 

Swag Bag
We also wanted to remind you that you can contribute items to our swag bag for free. Each of our presenters and VIP attendees will receive a swag bag to kick-off the event. All we ask is that you don’t give any flyers or coupons. Instead, you might share a teaser of a product you have to offer. Contributing a gift like that to the swag bag will have our most influential group of attendees talking about and purchasing your stuff all weekend long. You will need to bring 350 items with you to set up Thursday morning, and we’ll take care of the rest.
If you'd like to participate, please contact Darienne (801.822.1333) or e-mail us here.
