ATTENDEE SWAG BAG MATERIALS 

Deadline: August 16, 2024 

This is the perfect opportunity for attendee exposure to your brand by placing something memorable in their hands.

If a paper item is chosen, we do ask that you use it to promote a discount at the event itself or an invite to pick up the giveaway item at your booth.   Flyers must be produced on high quality paper or thick card stock.  

No liquid, anything perishable, or large items like frisbees, etc.  

Must be an enrolled exhibitor or sponsor for the current show.  

All items being shipped for Attendee Swag Bags, must arrive by August 16, 2024.

ORDER PATCHES 

Once again, we’ll have custom bags for our special camping attendees. There will be Overland Expo® patches on the front. We encourage you to have your own patches made (with the hook part) and give them away at your booth. This drives people around the exhibitor area to collect as many as they can! This is a great way to get your logo out to the community and to be a very interactive and important part of this event. Keep the patches no bigger than 2″ ideally (2.5″ max) please! We had good luck with Patches4Less.com. Bring these to the show to give out on your own for more interaction with your brand (we don’t recommend making these your attendee bag items).

CAMPING ON-SITE 

VERY IMPORTANT, THERE ARE RESTRICTIONS! Please be aware that we don’t have room for camping behind or next to booth spaces: 

  • CAMPING IN BOOTH SPACES: This is the preferred method of exhibitor camping at the venue. You are allowed to camp at your booth, free of charge, as long as you can camp within the perimeter of your booth space. 
  • EXHIBITOR CAMPING: If your camp setup will not fit in your exhibitor booth space, then the Exhibitor Campground Fee is $75 for the entire weekend. Add this camping pass onto your booth space reservation by logging into your account here. Exhibitor camping is a primitive camping space for one (1) camping vehicle or small 13′ overland centric trailer in exhibitor camping. Maximum of 4 people are allowed in one campsite (15 yrs & up). Badges are required and must be picked up / purchased from the Show Office at time of check-in for your exhibitor space.

DISCLAIMER: if you are contacted by Expo Housing Services (http://www.expohousingservices.com), we are in no way associated and we believe it is a scam. 

General liability insurance coverage is always required of each Overland Expo exhibitor, however, we know that securing these certificates of insurance (COI) can be a time-consuming after-thought and hassle. After much research and many requests from exhibitors for a better solution, we’ve secured a service with our preferred insurance provider to include an exhibitor COI with the purchase of any Overland Expo booth space or sponsorship moving forward. This convenience to the exhibitor will ensure that all exhibitor COIs meet insurance requirements and will eliminate the hassle to the exhibitor of securing a COI from an outside provider. This also ensures that no additional certificates of insurance will be required to purchase by the exhibitor. 

Once an exhibitor places a booth space order, we will secure the COI on the company’s behalf and will share that certificate with you for your files. You will receive an email (sent to the registered email on Event Hub) from Rainprotection Insurance Co. with a copy of the COI for your records. 

If you are planning to SELL RETAIL ITEMS directly to consumers, it is your responsibility to register and send all reporting information to the state Having a Colorado Special Event Tax License may be required. Please visit this link for more information https://tax.colorado.gov/special-event-sales-tax and follow through with any requirements to register/apply with the state of CO, and if necessary collect and report the appropriate Sales Tax. We will be asking for your selling status and permit number if appliable. Our responsibility as promoter is collect this information from each Exhibitor registered and attending our event, and to forward it on to the State of CO Department of Revenue. 

MANUFACTURER OR DEALER? YOU MAY NEED AN OFF-PREMISE PERMIT FROM THE COLORADO MOTOR VEHICLE DEALER BOARD 

If you are a Motor Vehicle, Motorcycle, Electric Bike Manufacturer or Overland Trailer Manufacturer not licensed by the Colorado Motor Vehicle Dealer Board, you will need to agree that you are not licensed to actively sell product in the state.   You will also need to agree that products displayed in your booth are for advertising features and benefits only and cannot contain pricing. Selling onsite could result in a fine from the Colorado Motor Vehicle Dealer Board which you (the Motor Vehicle, Motorcycle, Electric Bike Manufacturer or Overland Trailer Manufacturer exhibiting at the event) will be responsible for paying. 

   

If you are a registered Motor Vehicle, Motorcycle, Electric Bike Dealer or Overland Trailer Dealer in the State of Colorado or a Licensed Manufacturer planning to use a Colorado Licensed Dealer, you agree to obtain an Off-Premise Permit from the Colorado Motor Vehicle Dealer Board, Form DR 2043, found at www.colorado.gov.

All Tents Must Be Secured – No Exceptions.  Weather is unpredictable and winds are often gusty. 

Each venue includes asphalt, concrete, gravel and grass surfaces. Our MTN West venue The Ranch, does not allow staking.  

Make sure you bring supplies for securing your booth tent properly. Staking is not an option, so please bring ballasts, anchors, large water drums, etc., to secure your tents. What you secure your tent with will depend upon the size of the tent. Each leg of tent will need to have the proper amount of weight to secure it. It is best to consult with the tent manufactures guidelines. Tent anchors must fit in designated booth space.   

Any food sampling MUST BE approved and arranged through event management. 

Oak View Group holds the food and liquor licenses for the property, so all samplings must be reviewed and approved by Spectra on an individual basis. Any alcohol served on property may only be served by Spectra staff and labor will be billed back to the party hosting the sampling. Sample size will be 2oz.

Any serving of alcohol MUST be organized and managed thru the event venue.  Due to liquor licenses and rules set by the Alcohol and Beverage Commission in each state, there are strict rules on distribution of alcohol.  Any organized party not registered with Show Management and not complying by the rules will be considered illegal and dealt with by the County Sheriff and will be shut down immediately.  There is no distribution of alcohol allowed on venue premise via any other channel other than the event venue’s alcohol provider.

Display Vehicles (vehicles that will be on display in your booth) will receive a hang tag to enter/exit the event gates.  Please see Display Vehicles rules under “Load-In & Event Hours.” 

Exhibitors who attempt to leave early damage the show, create a dangerous environment for attendees, and harm attendance prospects for future shows. There are attendees that purchase Sunday passes, expecting to see a full show, and we must provide them with the same event and exhibitor experience. 

PLEASE NOTE that we will have staff on hand to record any early departures. 

EARLY DEPARTURES WILL MEAN YOU WILL FORFEIT YOUR SPACE FOR FUTURE SHOWS. Keep in mind, we are a SOLD OUT event, plus waitlisted 200+ exhibitors. If you personally are not attending the show, then please make sure your staff is aware of this.
