Priority Point System

Secure Your Best Booth Position for the 2026 SHAPE America National Convention & Expo

The Priority Point System recognizes and rewards loyal supporters of SHAPE America who, through exhibiting, advertising, sponsoring and participating as a SHAPE America Professional or Premier Partner, demonstrate their dedication to the health and physical education profession.  Priority Points are used in the scheduling process to determine 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 the SHAPE America Partner Program, exhibitors will receive bonus priority points. If you are seeking an enhanced SHAPE America National Convention and Expo experience in 2026, we strongly encourage organizations to invest in these additional support opportunities for the purpose of bolstering your overall reach.

5 Ways to Accrue Priority Points

  1. One (1) point per 100 square feet of space purchased annually, beginning with 2022 (e.g., 100 sq. ft. = 1 point, 200 sq. ft. = 2 points, etc.)
  2. One (1) point per year of consecutive participation as an exhibitor, beginning with 2022
  3. Earn additional points for 2025 convention sponsorship based on your support level, as outlined in the Sponsorship Chart (see chart below)
  4. One (1) point for the first $500 spent on 2025 convention advertising and one (1) point for additional convention advertising dollars spent, as outlined in the Advertising Chart (see chart below)
  5. One (1) point for SHAPE America Professional Partner and two (2) points for SHAPE America Premier Partner

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 2022)
  • Size of the purchased/occupied exhibit booth for 2025
  • Dates booth contracts for 2025 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 2026 SHAPE America National Convention & Expo will be conducted through an online, appointment-based procedure.
