Shed Builder Expo will enforce a strict suitcasing policy. Attendees are prohibited from selling products and services by wandering the show floor or in public areas without a bona fide, paid-for exhibit space.

Exhibitors. Shed Builder Expo is open to manufacturers, distributors, suppliers, product vendors and service providers who specifically target shed building companies and/or companies related to the shed builder marketplace. Prospective exhibitors will be evaluated for their level of participation, focus on shed builders, and involvement within the shed industry overall before approved to be an exhibitor. Evidence of exhibitor involvement geared at the shed industry will include but is not limited to the following:
- uniquely designed, manufactured and distributed shed products
- dedicated, direct shed sales and customer service personnel
- lumber distributors must own their own truck fleet (for shipping), must stock product, and must offer product return capabilities
- all exhibitors must be prepared to show evidence of shed-specific marketing and advertising programs such as print ads, websites, and/or brochures/newsletters
Submitting an application to exhibit at Shed Builder Expo is not a guarantee of acceptance.
Suitcasing Policy & Rules
Any activity designed to solicit or sell products or services to attendees during a meeting, seminar, on the show floor in the aisle, in another exhibitor’s booth, or in public spaces of the venue without authorization from Show Management is considered a violation of the rules of Shed Builder Expo.
