GPA Midstream Convention Hospitalities

Company-hosted hospitalities are a popular activity at the GPA Midstream Convention, and space must be booked through GPA Midstream for suites and public space. The hospitality request period will open on Oct. 9 and will close on Nov. 30 at 5 p.m. Central time. Please review the information below before requesting space. GPA Midstream expects to communicate space assignments by mid-January.

Important note: public hospitalities (in the ballroom spaces) will be held on Tuesday night, not on Monday night as they have been in the past.

What's the difference between public hospitalities and suites?

Public hospitalities are held on Tuesday night (April 16) in conference-level rooms. Public space comes in a variety of sizes, from small conference rooms to large ballrooms. For companies interested in public space (available Tuesday night only), the online request form will ask for your best guess on square footage needed for your event, the estimated number of people you expect in the room at any given time, plus the anticipated start time of your event. We also ask whether you intend to host a live band during your event, which will help us attempt not to place two bands next to each other. GPA Midstream takes information from all requests once the request form closes. Applying for hospitality space will not guarantee that a company will receive space, nor should companies expect to receive the same amount of space as awarded in a previous year. Companies applying for space are strongly encouraged to withhold from making deposits on entertainment, displays, etc., until they know exactly how much space has been allotted. GPA Midstream is committed to making our best attempt to accommodate each company's request.

The suite spaceswill be held in the sleeping section of the Marriott Rivercenter. For companies interested in reserving a suite, the online request form will ask for your suite choices in order of preference (top three). Applying for hospitality space will not guarantee that a company will receive space, nor should companies expect to receive the same type of suite as awarded in a previous year. Companies applying for suites are strongly encouraged to withhold from making deposits on entertainment, displays, etc., until they know exactly what suite has been allotted. GPA Midstream is committed to making our best attempt to accommodate each company's request. Please note that once suites are assigned, the hotel will contact you directly for a credit card, which is required to hold your suite.
