I would like to ship my display to the venue ahead of time. Is that available?

It is the responsibility of the Exhibitor/Company to make arrangements for exhibit materials to be shipped in or out of the Old Kinderhook Resort upon completion of the conference. Due to limited storage space, please send your packages to arrive no more than 2 days before the conference.

Packages should be addressed as follows:

Old Kinderhook Resort
Attn: Sales Office – Missouri Employment Conference
678 Old Kinderhook Drive
Camdenton, MO 65020

I would like to ship my display back to my company after the conference. How do I do that?

Please have return shipping label prepaid and on the package. Packages should be left at the registration table. An additional form, provided by Old Kinderhook, will need to be completed at the registration table.

Are my belongings secure at the conference?

Missouri Employment Conference will not provide 24-hour security for exhibitors. Exhibitors are responsible for the security of their own property and equipment at all times. Missouri Employment Conference nor Capitol Plaza Hotel and Conference Center are not responsible for any loss, theft or damage to any property left at the venue at any time.

I would like to provide a giveaway or raffle prize at the conference. What do I do?

There will be a vendor/sponsor giveaway during lunch. The prizes will be posted and announced at lunch. You may pick up your giveaway at the booth prior to the last session.

If I am a sponsor, do you need my logo? What format?

If you are submitting your company’s logo, the preferred format is Adobe Illustrator vector with outlined fonts. Also, acceptable are high-quality JPEGs (300 dpi). Logos taken from your website or with a screen capture tool (i.e.  Greenshot) are generally not usable or will result in poor print quality.

I need to stay overnight. What are my options?
