Is food included with my registration?
Yes. Both a continental breakfast and lunch buffet are included with your NERCPO registration.
Where can I park and unload my supplies?
Exhibitors must park along the side of the facility and use the service entrance to load and unload. The service entrance is at 14 Franklin Street, along the side of the building and to the left of the dumpsters. It is a fairly long walk from the service entrance to the meeting room, so it is suggested that you bring a dolly or cart if you have a lot to carry. No rolling carts or the like are permitted through the main entrance. Once you enter, follow NERCPO signs to the vendor area.
Where do I park after I unload my vehicle at NERCPO?
After unloading, Exhibitors must move their vehicles around the corner to UCONN’s parking garage across the street from the campus building. Parking is available free of charge at 1194 Washington Blvd, Stamford, CT 06902. When you exit the garage, you will see UCONN diagonally across the street on the corner.
May I donate an item to the raffle and goody bags?
Yes, all exhibitors and sponsors are asked to donate one item to the raffle. Please send this ahead of time to Susan O’Connell, 75 Cornwall Lane, Guilford, CT 06437. If you have items you would like to include in the goody bags, please send approximately 100 to the same address by September 15, 2019.
What else do I need to send in before the conference?
Please send the names of anyone that will be at your table to Susan O’Connell by October 15, 2019 so that we can have a name tag ready for every vendor and an accurate count for lunch.
