Priority Point System

Secure Your Best Booth Position

The SHAPE America Priority Point System recognizes and rewards loyal supporters of SHAPE America who through exhibiting, advertising, sponsorship and Partners for Active and Healthy Children (PAHC) membership demonstrate their dedication to the health and physical education professions.

Priority Points are used in the scheduling process of the Space Selection order for the following year's SHAPE America national convention and expo.  As an added benefit for investing in sponsorship, advertising or PAHC membership opportunities, exhibitors will receive bonus priority points.  If you are seeking an enhanced SHAPE America national convention and expo experience, we strongly encourage organizations to invest in sponsorship and advertising for the purpose of bolstering your overall reach.

Five Ways to Accrue Priority Points

  1. One (1) point per 100 square feet of space purchased in 2022 and/or reserved in 2020 (e.g., 100 sq. ft. = 1 point, 200 sq. ft. = 2 points, etc.), plus one (1) point for purchasing a Standard virtual booth and two (2) points for purchasing a Premium Virtual Booth in 2021
  2. One (1) point per year of consecutive participation as an exhibitor (2022, 2021, and 2020-held a reservation)
  3. Earn additional points for 2022 convention sponsorship based on your support level, as outlined in the Sponsorship Chart below
  4. One (1) point for the first $500 spent on 2022 convention advertising and one (1)  point for each additional $500 spent, as outlined in the Advertising Chart below
  5. One (1) point per year of consecutive participation as a member of Partners for Active and Healthy Children (2022, 2021, 2020 and 2019)

Loss of Priority Points

  1. If an exhibitor does not participate for two or more consecutive years, all priority points shall be forfeited
  2. Exhibitors who vacate or dismantle their booth prior to show closing, or who violate any of the other Terms, Conditions, Rules & Regulations in the exhibitor agreement, shall lose 5 priority points

In the Event of a Tie

If two organizations have the same number of priority points, Space Selection ranking will be determined by:

  • number of years exhibiting (beginning with 2020)
  • the size of the purchased/occupied exhibit booth for 2022
  • the dates their booth contracts (for 2022) were submitted

Notification of Priority Points

All exhibitors shall be notified, in writing, of the Space Selection re-booking date and procedures. Space Selection assignments for the 2023 SHAPE America National Convention & Expo will be conducted through an online, appointment-based procedure.
