The San Antonio Buying Show will take place at the Freeman Coliseum Expo Hall (Hall A).
New Product Showcase
This year we will again have a New Product Showcase area right on the show floor! We will be pulling samples from a list of items that have been added to our Schertz DC about 30 days prior to the Buying Show. If you’re not sure if that includes your new items, please reach out to your Vendor Manager to find out. If you’d like to bring samples of your new products on your own for this area, they will need to be approved by your Vendor Manager in advance. Only items that are currently stocked by ASC may be displayed.
You will receive an invoice for your booth fee, plus any applicable sponsorship and shipping fees. Your invoice will be emailed to your accounting contact (as listed on your registration form) approximately 2-3 weeks after the show.
Set-up hours are from 11:00am- 4:00pm on Thursday the 3rd. If you think you will need additional time, just let us know at the registration booth, and we’ll be happy to accommodate!
ASC will be purchasing lots of prizes to be given away to retailers throughout the day of the show. Retailers will receive their 1st entry ticket to the drawing at registration. In addition, we will deliver ticket pads to each vendor in your show packets. Please give a ticket to each retailer as they visit your booth during the show. You may also give retailers bonus tickets for placing orders with you at your booth! If you run out of tickets, see us at the registration counter for more. Prize drawings will take place every 30 minutes on show day.
You should have received an email for a login from our show decorator Rossi Expositions. All electricity can be ordered through your portal from Rossi.
Pets are not allowed at the Embassy Suites Riverwalk - Service animals are welcome. Pets will be welcome on the show floor.
As you arrive for set-up you will receive a special parking pass, you will need to keep this in your car and will provide you free parking in a special lot for vendors. Please see registration to receive your parking pass.
