Conference Sponsor Checklist

Use our sponsor form for many of these checklist items.

1. Register attendees from your firm for the conference.

The Sales Management Association will send you confirmation of all registered parties from your company, and will confirm directly by email with each registrant. Feel free to check in with us at any time to ensure all in your party are properly registered. Contact Devin Brewer dbrewer@salesmanagement.org.


2. Reserve hotel rooms for your attendees.

We’ve negotiated an excellent rate of US$189.00 before taxes and fees. Click here to make reservations for your attendees.


3. Get your exhibit approved (If you’re using something besides the six-foot table we provide).

Sponsors are provided a table for exhibition purposes, six feet in length. If you are considering something different, such as a booth structure, or something that may not fit in the space occupied by the table, let us know, using the the sponsor form.


4. Submit your exhibit location selections.

Sponsors select their preferred exhibition location. To do so, click here to see the exhibition floor plan and available spaces, then select and submit your preferred space(s) using the sponsor form.


5. Order Internet, electrical, telecom, and audio/visual service:

Each exhibitor will be given a six-foot draped table, two chairs, access to a standard wall socket for electricity, a wastebasket, and a wireless Internet connection.

You may have additional requirements and may want to order additional services from the hotel. Use the sponsor form to reserve items in advance, and make sure the hotel has a pre-authorized credit card on file for you (important for unexpected day-of-event needs). The hotel must receive equipment reservations 15 days in advance in order to guarantee availability.


6. Promote your involvement.

Make the most of your sponsorship investment by promoting your company’s involvement. Your help is greatly appreciated, and will contribute to our efforts to get the word out!

7. Make shipping arrangements for things you’d like to ship to or from the conference.

The hotel charges a nominal handling fee for the sixth and subsequent package you ship. (The first five packages are received at no cost, as long as each weighs less than 20 pounds.)

Package Handling and Delivery Fees

The credit card information you submit using the sponsor form will be used to process payment of package handling and delivery fees. These are based on the number of shipped boxes and/or their weight.

  • The first five boxes under 20 pounds each are handled without charge.
  • Each additional box incurs a $5.00 handling fee.
  • Boxes over 20 pounds are charged at $10.00 each.
  • Pallets incur a $25.00 handling fee each.

Loading Dock

Notify Anna Caterbone at anna.caterbone@ritzcarlton.com, who can coordinate your use of the loading dock. Large equipment must be loaded and unloaded at the loading dock. After unloading your equipment, please promptly park your automobile (cars left unattended on the loading dock will be towed). The hotel strongly advises against loading equipment in through the hotel’s public areas. All banquet rooms have a service entrance, which should be used at all times.

The loading dock is located on Buckhead Loop Road, under the Overpass, across from Phipps Plaza Mall.

Claiming packages upon arrival

Sponsors may claim shipments at the hotel concierge desk in the lobby. At setup, the hotel will bring packages labeled with a table number to each respective sponsor table. If you are unable to locate shipments, alert Anna Caterbone at anna.caterbone@ritzcarlton.com, who will create a request with the Conference Concierge team.

Ship packages back home after the conference

The Conference Concierge will go to each booth to assist with return shipping. Alternately, sponsors may contact the lobby Concierge Desk.
