We recommend a minimum of two instructors per product workshop. A representative from each sponsoring company is encouraged to be present during the class. As the workshop coordinator, please ensure that all instructors, co-sponsors, and additional workshop staff receive and understand all instructions. For business seminars, there must be one representative/speaker per class.

Services and Amenities Provided
Each classroom will include 1 wired mic,  an LCD projector with computer adapter and screen. Sponsors who require additional electrical outlets MUST specify at the time of their application the wattage for the tool and indicate if giving one tool per person or one per table. Please note, electrical hook-up requests for every 2-person table, or added after confirmations are sent, may incur a fee and/or may alter the scheduled workshop time and/or room.

Product Shipping, Storage and Delivery to Classroom
Coordinators will receive an email when the Workshop Shipping Kit is available for download. This Shipping Kit will include instructions for labeling and shipping materials for your Workshop to the New Orleans Ernest N. Morial Convention Center. Please adhere to these instructions to ensure a smooth workshop experience. Do not include your workshop materials with your exhibitor freight as it may not arrive in time for your workshop.
NAMTA will provide, free of charge, all Workshop drayage if the exhibiting sponsor(s) use the provided labels within the Shipping Kit. Sponsors who do not use these labels will be responsible for all costs associated with moving products from their booths to the classroom and will be billed separately for any labor used.

Contact Information
We encourage workshop sponsors to collect contact information in the event that the instructors/workshop sponsors wish to send class participants materials after the workshop. Upon request, NAMTA can provide contact name, company name, city, state, email address, and buyer type. However, we do not support the use of attendee lists to be used for purposes not directly associated to the workshop.
