We are excited to welcome you to the event series and thank you for being a part of the CWS brand. The 2020 edition of the CWS EXPO at the Austin Convention Center will make a BIG wave, so be ready to amplify your brand with a great presentation before, during, and after the 2-day event.
For that, we’ve put together a collection of resources, including photo inspiration on Pinterest, blog posts, videos and a list of adjacent marketing services. With the help of the CWS team, our partners and local friends, you’ll find all the information you need for a stress-free, high-impact experience for your brand and your team.
The person designated as your point of contact on your contract will receive periodical email notifications with deadline reminders, new releases, event updates for exhibitors and instructions, so it’s important to be on the lookout for those.
Also, you’ll find below all the documents you need to make your experience seamless and organized (instructions, best practices, FAQs, questionnaires, order forms and documents from the production team (DCE Clarity and/or CWS) or our designated partners). Please note that exhibitors who are not compliant with deadlines and requirements from the venues may be disqualified from exhibiting, so please read them carefully.
The CWS production team is working hard to publish our Download Center for Exhibitors, where you’ll find all the resources and information needed to optimize your presentation at CWS EXPO. In the meantime, all new exhibitors will receive these documents in their inbox upon registration:
You can order additional tables, chairs, linens, AV equipment, and more, using our handy online forms. This helps our clients save on event expenses, by ordering in bulk alongside the production team, and is extremely convenient for sponsors and exhibitors of all levels.
Our team can provide assistance with setup, shipping and other on-site requirements before, during and after the event. Contact us to outline your needs and one of our team members of preferred partners will reach out with useful information and next steps.
The Austin Convention Center, through their preferred partners, Levy Restaurants, offers catering services for all our exhibitors and team tents. Watch this space for updates on pricing, instructions, the official link to order online and more.
Use the courtesy code provided in your Exhibitor Handbook upon signing your contract and go to our Tickets Page to redeem your courtesy passes. Remember that ALL attendees (including General Admission and VIP courtesy pass holders) must register for the event using our ticketing portal to help us ensure an accurate headcount for our amenities.
To help at every stage of your presentation, our parent company DCE Clarity offers a wide variety of marketing services to CWS brands. These include creative consulting (branding, graphic design, video production and photography), digital marketing (web design, email marketing, social media management and digital advertising), and event services (custom booth design, printing and production, staffing and training, brand activations, promo items and more).
In our FAQs section, you’ll find answers to some of the most common questions to our exhibitor inquiries, to ensure your experience before, during and after the event is optimized for your brand and your staff’s needs. In case you have any additional questions, please reach out and an Account Manager will be glad to assist.
