About our Exhibitor Packages

While most trade show booths are only accessible from the front, most of our booths are accessible from at least three sides. We include a generous 4-5 feet of extra space between adjacent booths to maximize frontage available to attendees. All of our exhibitor spaces include clothed tables and Single Booth and larger exhibitor spaces include electrical power in the price. Further, booths that are back-to-back with another row of exhibitors include a half-drape wall and full-height pipe for hanging signage.

Exhibitor Badges

Each exhibitor package contains a fixed number of exhibitor badges (see above). These badges grant the bearer access to the show hall during all pre- and post-show hours. We are unable to provide more exhibitor badges than are provided in each exhibitor package. Exhibitors may choose to purchase standard attendee badges at the time they pay for their exhibitor package. Contact the vendor coordinator for details.

Vendor Car and Truck Parking

PRGE has a limited number of car truck parking spaces available for vendors for the run of the show (Friday through Sunday) in a lot just outside the loading dock of the venue. $35 for a car or $70 for a space that will fit a truck up to 35' in length. No overnight camping is allowed in the parking area.

Paid wifi internet access is available for a daily fee through the Oregon Convention Center. To sign up, connect to the "OCC WiFi" wireless network (SSID) - available facility wide. Once connected, open a web browser, choose a plan and click the 'Buy Now' button to begin the purchasing process.

Fire Code

The Portland fire code specifies certain rules for exhibitors at the convention center. All exhibitors should familiarize themselves the Oregon Convention Center's Fire Marshall Guide. Exhibitors should ensure all of their equipment and merchandise remains within the boundarys of their designated exhibitor space. At no time may an exhibitor obstruct an aisle in the show hall. Booths with complete or partial covers/roofs will be inspected by the Fire Marshall and exhibitors should be prepared to affect changes at the Marshall's request.

Regulations Regarding Reproduction Video Games

The following items may not be sold at PRGE:

  1. No North American released game may be sold as a reproduction unless their are major changes in the coding very early in the game play.
  2. Reproductions of games from other regions, should be specifically in a North American cartridge shell.
  3. No optical disc-based reproductions of North American games may be sold that do not require a modified or developer system to play.
  4. Reproduction games on optical media discs must have "REPRODUCTION" somewhere easily noticeable in the image of the disc label.

Penalties for violating the merchandise rules include a request to remove the offending items from your vendor area up to revocation of your permission to exhibit at PRGE and removal of your merchandise and staff from the show hall.


Exhibitor Setup

The exhibition hall will be open for vendor setup or load-in during the following hours:

  • 10:00 AM to 10:00 PM on Friday, October 20, 2017
  • 6:00 AM to 9:00 AM on Saturday, October 21, 2017
  • 8:00 AM to 10:00 AM on Sunday, October 22, 2017
For security reasons, exhibitors will NOT be allowed in the exhibitor hall prior to 8:00 AM on Sunday.

PLEASE NOTE: The arcade portion of the Expo will be open to the public on Friday, October 20 during the vendor setup period. It will be separated from the exhibitor hall by an air wall until Saturday morning when the wall will be opened to conjoin the arcade and exhibitor halls into one. Once you have completed your booth setup on Friday, your exhibitor badge will grant you access to the arcade side of the show up until midnight.

Exhibitors may also choose to set up on the day of the show. The exhibition hall will open for exhibitors at 6:00 AM on Saturday, October 21nd. All setup must be completed by the time the doors open at 9:00 AM.

All exhibitors must check in upon arrival to receive your table assignment and badges prior to unloading. If you have any questions about vendor setup, please contact info@retrogamingexpo.com.

Only show staff and exhibitors will be permitted in the show hall prior to 9:00 AM on Saturday when the show hall officially opens to presale ticket holders. Attendees who purchase tickets at the door will be permitted into the show at 10:00 AM.

Blocking visibility of other exhibitors with merchandise or signage is prohibited.


Important Note To All Vendors and Exhibitors

Vendors and exhibitors are required to be completely set up by 9:00 AM on Saturday morning.

It is unfair to our show attendees to have to work around exhibitors who load in their booth after the doors have opened. If you absolutely can't be set up by 9:00 AM, please contact the PRGE staff ahead of time to work something out. We will do our best to accomodate you at our discretion. There will be no refunds for late or no-show vendors and we reserve the right to reallocate your space in the event of a no-show.
