2013 Regional Seminar Supplier Information
The VRMA Regional Seminars offer many opportunities for building relationships with current and future clients:
Once your registration is received, you will be sent a showcase information form to indicate your table preferences. Initial table assignments will be made for vendors registered by March 7, with priority given first to corporate sponsors (Gold, Silver, Bronze), then to conference sponsors, and then according to registration date. Vendors registering after March 7 will be assigned tables on a first-come, first-served basis.
The Regional Seminars will each have simple table set-ups (not pipe-and-drape booths). If your company's display does not easily fit on top of a 6-foot table, the table can be removed. Each exhibitor space will be 8-feet wide (to accommodate one 6-foot table and 1-foot on either side) and approximately 6-feet deep (to accommodate the table and chairs).
- Western Showcase
- Eastern Showcase
Deadline March 16
Advertising at the Regional Seminars is a great way to get your message in front of vacation rental managers before, during, and after the Seminars. Programs will be distributed to all Seminar attendees and posted on the VRMA website before the Seminar. Attendees will keep their programs through the duration of the Seminar, referring to them frequently, and many attendees will likely keep the program for reference after the Seminar. Visit the Advertising opportunities page
to learn more. To guarantee placement in the Seminar programs, advertising must be submitted by March 16.
Deadline March 15
Show your support for the vacation rental industry and highlight your company’s message by becoming an event sponsor. Several sponsorship opportunities exist at various price-points to make it easy for all supplier members to participate. The earlier you sign up, the more recognition you will receive; sponsors will be added to the Seminar web pages and highlighted in Seminar promotions as they are confirmed. Sign up by March 16 to receive logo recognition in the Seminar Programs.
Host Client Meetings & Receptions
Deadlines March 15 (Western) & March 29 (Eastern)
All supplier members are invited to hold meetings or receptions at the Seminar venues. This can be a great way to build relationships with your current or potential clients. Gather your top clients for lunch on Monday or breakfast on Tuesday of the Seminars to show how much you appreciate their business. Hold a late night reception to get to know potential clients better. Reserve a private room to have one-on-one client meetings. Whatever you choose, make it convenient for Seminar attendees by holding your event in the Seminar venue.
To book meeting space at the Seminar hotels, please submit the meeting request form
to VRMA by March 15 (for the Western) and/or March 29 (for the Eastern). VRMA staff will respond to requests within one week of receipt and, upon confirmation of space availability, connect you with the venue event staff.

Coupon Code Competition
As a VRMA supplier member, you interact with numerous vacation rental managers on a daily basis. Some are VRMA members, some aren't. Why not give your customers who are not VRMA members a way to register for a VRMA Regional Seminar at a discounted rate? (VRMA members still register at the best available rate.)
Back for a second year, supplier members have the chance to give non-VRMA member clients a coupon code for $100 off the non-member Seminar rate.
If you want to participate in this program, simply send us an email at email@example.com. We will send you promotional text for the Seminars along with a coupon code you can send to your clients, good for $100 off the non-member pricing when they register for a Regional Seminar.
The supplier who recruits the most attendees will receive recognition at the Regional Seminars, along with bragging rights!
