Tips for First Time Exhibitors
As a first-time exhibitor at the Grand Strand Gift & Resort Merchandise Show, make sure you brush up on all of the tips to a successful first show!


Directory scam

We have been advised that Construct Data Publishers has been soliciting paid listings in their publication, FAIR Guide, from exhibiting companies of some of our shows. Please be advised that Urban Expositions has no relationship or affiliation with this organization and does not recommend, approve or endorse any involvement or listing in the FAIR Guide on behalf of the any of our exhibitors. As an exhibitor, your listing in Urban Expositions’ official Show Directories is always complimentary. Returning a signed contract to Construct Data Publishers will result in advertising obligations and fees so we wanted to make sure you were aware of this.

List rental scam

The Grand Strand Gift & Resort Merchandise Show does not rent the attendee list. If you receive an email regarding an attendee list, please forward the email to Samantha Hudak at

Housing warning

Connections Housing is the only approved, official housing vendor for the Grand Strand Gift & Resort Merchandise Show. We understand that unauthorized housing companies such as Skyline Housing Inc. may be contacting you advertising cheaper rates and may imply or claim an affiliation with the show or Urban Expositions. Unfortunately, some past attendees and exhibitors have fallen prey to these companies and they have either: lost significant deposits, been relocated with little or no warning, have not had the guest rooms they thought they had booked, or have not received reservations at the hotel they had thought were confirmed. So be sure to book your room through Connections Housing!
