We want each and every one of you to have a successful weekend at the expo. It’s important to remember it’s all about engaging with the consumer.

How do you plan on drawing consumers to your booth? Creativity is key. Sampling and passing out giveaways are a great way to create a buzz at your booth, but a lot of companies incorporate more interaction. Some examples are: Spin the wheel for a prize, push up contests for t-shirts, competitions against other attendees for a grand prize.

Utilize this customer interaction to gather attendees’ contact information for FUTURE SALES. A lot of companies do this by bringing in their own iPads to capture the info of each attendee. This is a great way to continue to sell your products to the consumer after the initial interaction.


At all of our expos you are able to bring in your own product and set up your booth on your own. We do however have a general contractor on-site, GEMS, to help with any additional assistance or items you may need. These items do come with an additional cost.

We just wanted to re-emphasize that the USA Fit Games are a family friendly fitness event.  Any promotional materials including, banners, signage, shirts (for giveaway or purchase) and all marketing materials need to be free of obscenities, nudity, and/or profane language on our show floor (including music).  If we see any banners or graphics that are unacceptable we will come up and discuss options with you personally on the show floor.  Lastly if we see anyone wearing unacceptable clothing, we will ask them to cover it up and/or put other clothing on while at the event.  Individuals who fail to comply will be removed from the show floor as necessary.

We strive to make this a well rounded family friendly fitness event and appreciate all of your cooperation in this manner.
If you have any questions about what might be prohibited for display on our show floor just shoot our show manager an email for clarification.
