Show In Motion
This year's decorator at the Westin Bayhsore is Show In Motion, and their friendly customer service representatives will help you with all of your questions regarding your exhibit space. Please take advantage of their knowledge and call with any thoughts or concerns you might have.
For questions about the Exhibitor Service Kit or on-site materials handling prior to the conference, please contact our Show In Motion Exhibit Services Manager:
Exhibitor Service Kit
This year, the decorator’s kit includes two different shipping labels depending on which shipping method you choose. It is important that you read this information carefully and contact WAA’s Conference Manager with any questions. Regardless of the shipping method or carrier you choose, Show In Motion must receive a completed Materials Handling Order Form no later than August 9, 2015 to receive the discounted rate.
As you are accustomed, the Service Kit also includes information for placing additional furniture orders or extras such as literature racks, plants, or accessories. Again, all orders must be received no later than August 9, 2015 to receive the discounted rate. Please note that all prices listed in the kit are in US dollars.
Electricity & Audio Visual
Electric in your exhibit space may be ordered for $148 CAD (covers all three days of the Exhibit Hall, Tuesday through Thursday) and is inclusive of all labor charges and taxes.
Electricity and A/V is ordered directly with PSAV by filing out this form and emailing it to Andras Kiss-Parciu at the Westin Bayshore. Electric is run to the back of each exhibit space. Bringing the electric to the front of the space has an additional cost and will require a rented electric extension cord from PSAV. If you choose, you may bring a powerstrip cord of your own.
WAA has secured a 20% discount for exhibitors on any A/V equipment rented through PSAV at the Westin Bayshore (discount does not apply to electric).
If you have questions, you can speak with Andras Kiss-Parciu at PSAV before placing your order.
Sales Manager, PSAV
The Westin Bayshore
WiFi in the exhibit hall will be available. Internet is also provided free of charge throughout the Westin Bayshore Lobby, and in guest rooms booked into the WAA block.
Food & Beverage in your Exhibit Space
Give-a-Ways brought onsite from outside the hotel are not allowed (a small bowl of individually wrapped mints or candies is allowed). Please email Nancy Beddome at the Westin Bayshore for any hospitality you would like to offer in your space.

Shipping Instructions & Deadlines
Exhibitors are advised that the Westin Bayshore cannot accept direct shipments. The hotel does not have the capabilities to receive nor have adequate storage space for Exhibitor materials.
As has always been the case, exhibitors have a choice in how they get their materials to the conference. They may travel with materials on-hand, or materials may be shipped in advance. However, because WAA will be in Canada this year, shipping protocols for those who choose to do so will be different than in previous years. Please see our special page dedicated to getting your exhibiting materials to Vancouver. Shipping labels are provided both in the Exhibitor Kit and in the manual provided by NALSI.
