Exhibitors Page - 2019 TH SHRM

Dear Valued Partners,

SHRM Chattanooga is proud to be the host for the 2019 Tennessee SHRM Conference & Exposition and the Exhibit Hall booth reservations are now open.   As the leading Human Resources event in the Mid-South region, now in its 27th year, the Conference is your best opportunity to nurture existing relationships and build new ones.   We expect more than 600 HR professionals attending the Conference, and the Exhibition Hall to be sold out well before the reservation deadline, so I encourage you to reserve your booth location as soon as possible.

Based on surveys or prior year exhibitors, we have made a number of changes to the Exhibit Hall.

  1. Better traffic flow means every booth location is a great one – The new Exhibit Hall floor plan distributes traffic more evenly than any year before.   All booths are not situated in high traffic lanes and attendees must make their way through the Exhibit Hall in order to reach the food service court,  where breakfast and breaks will be served during the Exhibit Hall days. Lunch will be served right next door to the Exhibit Hall and attendees will need to go through the Exhibit Hall for lunch.
  2. More complete exhibitor package – Your 10’ x 10’ booth is more spacious than past years, featuring electrical power, 6’ draped table, two chairs, waste basket and more. Furniture, special equipment and Internet access are all available from our Exhibit Hall vendor and the Chattanooga Convention Center.  Wi-fi is free.
  3. Strictly limited space – There are a finite number of booths available in the Exhibit Hall and no more space may be added once this area has been sold.
  4. Plus – Games and activities designed to draw attendees into the Exhibit Hall. 

On behalf of our SHRM Chattanooga Board, members, and all of the many volunteers from around the great state of Tennessee who are working hard to make this event the top Human Resources Conference in Tennessee, we look forward to seeing your there.
