Western Protective Relay Conference 2018
 

Exhibitor Information


The Western Protective Relay Conference is pleased to announce some exciting changes to the WPRC program for 2018. First and foremost is that the exhibitor registration process, including contracting for booth space, will all be handled through the WPRC Registration Portal. Other changes include an all exhibit hall layout, dedicated exhibitor events, and sponsorship and advertising opportunities. 

New Format
This year WPRC is shifting to an all Exhibit Hall format. All exhibitors will be housed in Exhibit Hall A of the Spokane Convention Center. Dedicated exhibitor hours and events will all be held in the exhibit hall. With the new format, we have taken steps to encourage all attendees to browse the exhibit hall area each day (see Event Schedule). The food and beverage for those events is included in the cost of a registration. Drink tickets for the Monday and Tuesday receptions will be available for purchase during the registration process. Because of this significant investment to invite attendees into the Exhibit Hall, we ask that vendors not hold functions and/or encourage WPRC attendees to engage in activities outside the exhibit hall during exhibitor hours.
