We have decided to implement an application process in order to create the best experience for our attendees. Applications will be reviewed in the order that they are received. Application reviews can take up to 7-10 business days. Once your application has been approved, you will receive a link to purchase your booth(s) or table(s). This link is only good for one time use, so do not share it with others. An application approval does not mean a space has been reserved for you. Be ready to pay in full when you receive the purchase link to your email to confirm your exhibit space. Your link will be valid for 72 hours. After which, you must email paradise@superconventions.com to request a new link if there is still space available.
