Our Trade Show will be held at the Albany Times Union Center located two blocks from the hotel at 51 South Pearl Street in Albany. It is a world-class sports and entertainment venue boasting some 26,600 square feet of open floor space on the arena floor and another 20,000 square feet of display space in the Exhibition Hall that is located immediately at the entrance to the facility and the arena floor.
The Show and Space
We are finalizing our plans for the initial layout of the trade show space and will be releasing that information along with space reservation weblinks in the coming week and wanted to alert you to that step. We will be doing the space reservation process on line through our web-based registration system and hope it will make our work together easier and efficient.

At the same time, we will offer opportunities for sponsorships at all levels. These are opportunities to get in front of our members and
attendees. There will be opportunities to support the Conference and Trade Show events, the Roadeo, the Golf Outing and other NYAPT and Cyr Foundation activities. We hope you will consider these opportunities.
ADVERTISING FOR OUR EXHIBITORS
An exciting addition to our advertising capacity this year will be the relationship with the Times Union Center which will be in contact with you to consider use of the Scoreboard and LED ribbons that encircle the arena to get your message out to our attendees and to promote your products, your companies and other information of value to you. We will also be able to offer access to press rooms if you have new products to present or promotions you want to advance. All this is new and presents great avenues for your marketing and product or service placement.
