Exhibitor Information


WELCOME EXHIBITORS! We invite you to conduct business with Wisconsin's finest independent insurance agents in a welcoming, energized atmosphere. Our annual Convention Showcase is one of the largest gatherings of insurance professionals in the nation. 
We have enjoyed outstanding participation in the past and this year will be no exception. Last year's convention was a roaring success and we expect our 2016 event to follow suit with an estimated 600 participants. We are excited to host our many familiar suppliers along with the new companies that offer valuable products and services to our members!

The family friendly Kalahari Resort is the adventure-inspired resort destination for the IIAW's superior annual convention.  As the largest convention center in Wisconsin, this state-of-the-art location is ideal for hosting independent insurance agents, company carriers and industry supporters.

PRIME TIME VIEWING OF EXHIBITS

With the continued success of the 2015 Convention Showcase's one day format, this year's event will again follow suit. Our goal is to provide exhibitors maximum exposure and quality time to visit with clients and prospects while attempting to accommodate your busy schedule and our long list of vendors had suggested that our previous two-day format was a daunting time commitment.  The exhibit hall, in the popular Kalahari Convention Center, is located in the heart of all convention general sessions and social events. All daytime activities will take place here, affording you supreme publicity and easy visitor access to your booth.

The trade show will open on Wednesday, May 11th at 2:00 p.m., following the Convention's kick-off sessions. An all-inclusive booth layout design will provide suppliers a fantastic opportunity to visit with all attending agents, guaranteeing your exposure. Booths will remain open until 5:00 p.m. Drawings for exhibitor-provided door prizes will take place during these hours in the exhibit hall. The combination of meet-and-greet with keynote speaker Donald Driver, IIAW promo activities, opportunity to win cash payouts throughout the show, and VIP Lounge featuring Potosi Brewing Company in the center of the Convention Showcase will be an excellent incentive for all agents to remain in the hall and visit with you.

As always, maximum exposure for you and your products and services is our ultimate objective. This is why our exhibit hall is among the largest and most successful in the nation.

BOOTH SPECIFICS

Booths are 8' x 10' and include one 8' skirted table, one 8' backdrop with 3' side drapes, company sign (if requested on registration form), two chairs and wastebasket. The entire exhibit area is carpeted. All other equipment, including electrical service, telephone/ Internet hook-up, additional chairs, carpeting, drayage, booth cleaning, etc., must be ordered using the appropriate form in the Exhibitor Packet, accessed above.
