(Concrete Products.com) –
The American Concrete Pipe Association projects 400-plus engineers, executives, owners and allied professionals from the North American concrete drainage products segment gathering for the inaugural ACPA Pipe Show, staged concurrently with the 2016 Pipe School, January 4–7 at the University of Texas at Arlington.
The ACPA Pipe Show will be a true “turnkey” event, Childs adds, as exhibitors need only reserve booth space and be prepared to bring literature and other company materials. Show staff will provide a 10- x 12-ft. booth with black hard walls; curved corners and a custom logo graphic; a 6-ft. table with skirt; two padded chairs; plus, food and beverage for booth staff. Double-sized booths are also available. ACPA Pipe Show hours will be spread throughout the four-day Pipe School event.
As an added, optional benefit available to booth sponsors only, ACPA is scheduling a “Business-To-Business” (B2B) event on Friday, January 8, affording exhibitors private Arlington Hilton facilities for meetings with senior executives of ACPA producer members. Each B2B participant will be guaranteed five 30-minute meetings. “While the Pipe Show provides an excellent venue for networking with customers and prospects, the ‘Business To Business’ event offers a unique opportunity to conduct private, prearranged meetings between Associate Member exhibitors and senior management from Producer Members,” notes Childs. “The meeting agendas are agreed to in advance of the event to ensure the most productive use of time.”
Booth space at the 2016 ACPA Pipe Show is limited and will be assigned on a first-come basis. Likewise, there is limited B2B program availability. Additional information and space reservations can be obtained from Adam Hochfelder, 214/293-4191;email@example.com.
