Vendor & Sponsor Info
We do NOT accept business or personal checks the weekend of the show under any circumstances.
Our staff will be more than ready to assist you in finding Vendor Check-in so that you may take care of any business that you may have. You must come to Vendor Check-In FIRST so that you can receive your wristband(s). The wristband is your entry into the event and must be worn for the duration. Please be prepared to take care of any outstanding balance at this time.
When you get to Vendor Check-in, you will be given ____ weekend passes. The number of passes you receive is determined by the size of the package you purchased. All persons must have a wristband. Up to five (5) additional wristbands may be purchased at half-price.

ENTERING A VEHICLE
If you have a vehicle that is going to be entered into the show, please notify the Heat Wave, Inc. staff in the Vendor Check-In Booth and take the vehicle through the registration and classification procedures by 7:00 PM on Friday (for inside booth or inside space). The Vendor area will be shut off to traffic Saturday at 10:00 AM and you will be unable to get the vehicle to your display. After you are classed, let the parking crew know which vendor booth you are going to.

Heat Wave, Inc. will have 24-hr Security on the grounds starting Thursday night through show ending on Sunday. We suggest that all merchandise be put up in a secure and locked place when the show ends each day. The Convention Center is a very large place and we cannot watch all the booths at the same time. If you would like to hire additional Security, please contact our office at 512-252-0283 in advance so we can help you with these arrangements. Heat Wave, Inc. is not responsible for any lost or stolen goods or property.
