STS has secured special rates for exhibit staff at the Gaylord Palms Resort & Convention Center.

PLEASE NOTE: Admission to the technical exhibits is limited to the owners, officers, representatives, and employees of exhibiting companies who have contracted space. Models or similar personnel not commercially connected with the industry may not be employed to help in an exhibitor's booth. Representatives are defined as individuals who receive commission, brokerage, or salary from the exhibiting company, and must be certified. Excluded from this category are representatives who maintain and own inventories of merchandise for resale; such people are considered to be dealers and as such are eligible to purchase their own exhibit space.
