Meeting Room Requests

To request a meeting room while you are exhibiting at The PPAI Expo please access the Meeting Room Request Form.  If you have any questions, please contact the Meetings and Registration Manager.

Wi-Fi is provided to all attendees on the show floor! Exhibitors may also take advantage of the free Wi-Fi. However, if you are relying on Wi-Fi to conduct business from your booth during the show, the service may be slower due to the thousands of users. For faster, more reliable internet service to conduct business from your booth, PPAI recommends that exhibitors order internet service through the Mandalay Bay Exhibitor Service Manual.

Product Safety Aware

All companies wanting to access the PPAI marketplace through trade-show exhibit space, sponsorships or advertising must obtain Product Safety Aware status. The PPAI Expo 2024 deadline is January 5, 2024. 

This free program for both suppliers and distributors is designed to ensure that at least one person at each company possesses a basic understanding of our industry’s compliance obligations. This can be achieved by simply completing four hours of product safety education (live or recorded), attending The Product Responsibility Summit (live or virtual) or ICPHSO conference or being a member of PRAG.
