Booth Placement

Booth assignments will be made as we get closer to the conference. We try not to place competing companies in close proximity to each other, but we don’t always know who your competition is. If there is a company you prefer NOT to be next to, or one you WANT to be next to please let Kimberly Fresch know ASAP. Booths cannot be changed once assignments have been made.

Shipping Information

Please number all boxes in a series and address each box as follows:

The Wigwam Resort & Golf Club
300 E. Wigwam Boulevard
Litchfield Park, AZ 85340
Attention: [Group Name] [Group Contact/Conference Service Manager] Please hold for arrival on: [Mo/Day/Year]

Oversized shipments must be approved by the Catering/Conference Services Manager, Jay Ozanne, in advance. The Resort does not accept responsibility for loading, unloading or placement of these shipments. Special arrangements must be made between the exhibiting party and the contracted delivery company. No shipments or deliveries are to be delivered to the Front Desk. The Resort’s delivery entrance is located on Neolin Avenue past the main entrance. The Resort will not accept shipments earlier than 7 days prior to the start of the conference. For further details please contact:

Jay Ozanne
Sr. Convention Services Manager

**Note: Please make copies of the carrier’s tracking/airbill numbers and keep in your possession until you receive your boxes. This will enable the Resort to immediately track any shipments and insure that your Carrier has delivered them.


All raffles must be done through Synova, not at your booth. If you have an item that you would like to raffle, please let Kimberly know. Items valued over $100 will be given away at the end of the second exhibit time in the exhibit hall. (Winners MUST be present to win.) Items valued at less than $100 will be given away during the Synova Party.
