What is Vendor Night?

The GPA Midstream Convention doesn’t have a traditional exhibit hall like many conferences do because our emphasis remains on the papers, presentations, forums and networking opportunities. We have one exhibit period called Vendor Night, consisting of a three-hour exhibit session with a restricted number of booth spaces available that is held in conjunction with a reception on the opening day of the convention (Sunday, April 19). We have 25 spaces available at our New Orleans venue, all 10 x 10 feet, at a space cost of $2,500 for members and $3,500 for non-members. These spaces will be delegated through a lottery system for 2020. The enrollment period for the Vendor Night lottery will open on Sept. 14 and will close on Sept. 25. Companies selected via random drawing will be announced on Sept. 29.
