Sponsor Pavilion Information

The Sponsor Pavilion is set up so that while guests enjoy a great dinner buffet and mingle, they have the opportunity to visit your booth and learn more about your products and services. We will provide bags for attendees to pick up collateral and sales gift items as they stroll by and meet with you. We also provide them with a Passport for Prizes booklet to have stamped by sponsors during the Sponsor Pavilion in order to be eligible to win some great prizes from each of the sponsors at the end of the Awards.

Event Logistics:

  1. Sponsor Pavilion set up time is on October 24, 2023 from 4:00 PM – 5:45 PM. All sponsors should be set up and ready to go by 5:45pm. The Pavilion Dinner begins at 6:00pm and will end at 7:30pm. The hotel will provide in the exhibit space a highboy table (cocktail round) which is 30” in diameter. You are welcome to bring one banner. Your table assignment in the pavilion will be labeled before your arrival.

  2. Location of event:  Trinity River 4 - access allowed after 4:00pm.

  3. Tracking Numbers: If T.E.N. was sent tracking numbers by your company ahead of time, we will provide those to the hotel so they can pull your boxes and place at your table before your arrival.

  4. Shipping to the HotelREQUIRED BY ALL SPONSORS WHO SHIP ANYTHING TO THE HOTEL. Packages can be received as early as October 18, 2023. Please address your packages as follows:
    Dallas Plano Marriott at Legacy Town Center

    Plano, TX 75024

  5. Electrical outlets, Internet & AV Needs: must be handled directly through the hotel and you are responsible for any costs associated with those requests. We encourage you to use the pavilion hours to network and mingle versus focus on demo’s. It is each sponsor's individual decision to order these items. If you choose to do so, please use the Marriott Legacy Town Center Exhibitor Utility Charge Form. Please email Javier Amador, Director of Event Technology at for any questions pertaining to additional AV requests.

  6. Breakdown of Sponsor Tables:  The sponsor pavilion will pause at 7:30pm as guests will be seated in the Trinity River 3 room for the Awards Gala. We encourage you to attend the Awards Gala and afterwards the Champagne & Desserts Reception. You can leave your table setup until after the Champagne and Dessert Reception and then pack up, but your materials must be all packed by 11pm. Please DO NOT leave any valuables at your sponsor tables when you leave to go to the Awards Gala.

  7. Outbound Shipping:  Please package and label all your boxes prior to leaving the pavilion area. You MUST place outbound shipping labels on all boxes so they are not mistaken for trash. Please DO NOT leave any valuables at your sponsor tables when you leave. You must complete a credit card authorization form with the hotel to use their shipping services. The hotel has an automatic FedEx and UPS pick-up so no need to make special arrangements. If you plan to use a different courier, you will need to schedule a pick-up directly. If you need any assistance with your boxes after packing up, the hotel banquet staff will be able to assist.
