Please Note Before Booking Your Hotel:

So that we could keep the cost of the show as low as possible and not raise any of the fees we contracted with the Embassy Suites to book a minimum number of rooms per night.  This number was well beyond the needs of ClarkPowell so we need your help please consider staying at the Embassy Suites.  All of this year's events are centered on the hotel.  Golf is less than a half mile from the hotel (more on golf later) and the vendor dinner is at the hotel too!  We negotiated a special rate of $159 per night (this is $50 dollars off the regular rate).  You'll earn Hilton Honors points and help ClarkPowell keep show costs down in the future.

Event Info

Golf

6/27/2017 2:00 pm, Rocky River Golf Club
As in years past, we will play a four man captain's choice, strictly-fun event with a 2:00 pm shotgun start. The fee to participate is $150 and includes golf for two (yourself and client or CP team member), cart, range balls, on-course beverages and more. There are rental clubs available and you will need to contact the course to reserve your set.
I’m sorry to say we cannot accept marketing co-op funds as a form of payment for this event only cash, check or charge please.

Vendor Appreciation Dinner

6/28/2017 6:00 pm, Embassy Suites, Fairway Room
We invite you to join us for dinner and a casual networking event. This is an opportunity to mix with the entire ClarkPowell sales and Senior Management teams. As a thank you for the generous support we have received over the years from our our vendor partners ClarkPowell will host this event.  There will be no charge for the first attendee from your organization (one free per booth, i.e. two booths two free to attend.) and a fee of $75 for each additional member. In previous years the cost to attend was $100 per person.
I’m sorry to say we cannot accept marketing co-op funds as a form of payment for this event only cash, check or charge please.

Show Setup

6/28/2017 9:00 am - 5:00 pm, Embassy Suites Convention Center

During setup, members of the ClarkPowell sales and senior management teams will be available on the show floor for impromptu meetings and product demonstrations. For information regarding shipping and storage to the Embassy Suites please contact the hotel directly at (704) 455-8200.

Sales Meeting – Throughout the setup day the members of ClarkPowell sales team will meet with vendors for 25 minute information sharing blocks. This is your opportunity to tell your story and have the complete attention of the people that move your products. There is a problem though... there simply isn’t enough time to meet with each of the 50 or so vendors that are attending the show. The schedule allows for twelve meetings so how do we prioritize:

  • Show sponsors get first priority, bag and Lanyard (1), morning coffee (1), and lunch (4)
  • Seminar Presenters

During the show all of our sales people will be on the floor with clients and touring the booths. The goal is to ensure every ClarkPowell salesperson visits every booth. Of course, golfing and the Wednesday dinner are also excellent networking opportunities.

Seminars

We are staggering the starting times of the seminars, as we have done in the past. This means guests will have much more time to spend on the floor visiting your booths. We are planning to offer 10 seminars but guests of the show will be limited to two or three seminars at the most. Show attendees can select one or two seminars from the morning sessions and one from the afternoon sessions. This leaves a minimum of three hours for attendees to be on the show floor. You are strongly encouraged to submit presentation topics for seminars as quickly as possible. Seminars are one of the most significant features of ClarkPowell’s FUSION event, and audience sizes can range from 40 to 100+. Having the topics early allows us to promote the seminars and build attendance for the show. Each seminar should be roughly 55 minutes in length, including time for Q&A’s. Seminars should be application specific—not product specific. There is no fee to present a solution specific seminar.
