Important Information for Partners
What to Bring
The Alaska Travel Industry Association will supply a table sign with your show listing and table number. Banners, freestanding pop-up displays or posters are not allowed. Laptop PCs, hard copy media kits, pictures and brochures that will fit on your table (approx. 6 feet) are permitted. Quantities should be decided based on the number of appointments.

Partners are recommended to have an extra laptop battery or charge for their laptops during the break sessions (note that there is limited availability of electrical outlets onsite).
Partners are responsible for any shipping costs to and from The Westin Lake Las Vegas Resort and Spa. Quantities of media materials should be decided based on the number of appointments. In an effort to level the playing field for members large and small gifts are not allowed to be given out to journalists and should not be sent to the hotel. Based on feedback from media at previous Alaska Media Road Shows, it is recommended that you offer press materials in a variety of formats (paper/hard copies as well as in digital form on a flash drive or disk).
Partners should clearly indicate their registered name and table number, which will be shown in the floor plan, on ALL boxes. Please remember to bring a copy of your tracking number with you.
