The exhibitor kit will be emailed to vendors directly from the decorator, GEMS.
You will each receive an invididual email from GEMS with a dedicated link to place your order for all exhibitor services, tables, pipe & drape, carpet, etc. as well as downloadable forms for electricity, internet, and phone services. Please read and complete all applicable forms, then submit them to their respective entities.
Booth numbers are needed at the time you order services and will be sent to you when booth fees are paid in full and received by AQS.

I Am AQS is a wonderful opportunity to promote your booth at all the AQS QuiltWeek® shows. It’s a chance for you to attract AQS members by providing a Show Special available only to members.
This program is completely free of charge!
Should you choose to participate, you will receive the following benefits:
Your company name and booth number will be listed on the I Am AQS! vendor page in the Show Book.
Your company name and a direct link to your webpage will be listed on the quiltweek.com website under participating I Am AQS! vendors for each show.
AQS will provide “I Am AQS!” signage for your booth.
AQS Members will be directed to your booth for the members-only special.
All you have to do is provide one special, and we will do the rest. Just look for the I Am AQS! button or ask to see their membership card at the show to identify AQS members and offer the special. You can decide on your special at a later date.
The AQS Learning Center will again be in Daytona Beach in 2023. The AQS Learning Center is open Wednesday through Saturday during the show.
All vendors are invited to present a 20-minute educational presentation or demonstration on the topic of their choosing. It is free for the public to attend and free for vendors to participate. It is an excellent way to advertise your product, as well as to lead attendees directly to your booth after the presentation.
The AQS Learning Center is very popular with both attendees and vendors. If you are interested in participating, please return the form as soon as you can. We want to have a diverse range of topics but time slots will be given out loosely on a first-come, first-served basis. Selected vendors will be notified of their day and time slots. Preferences of day and time will be considered in scheduling but cannot be guaranteed.
The stage will be approximately 10’ x 24’ and AQS will provide a screen, digital projector, sound system, and a stationary video camera to project your demonstrations.
*Please note: If your presentation requires a laptop, you must bring your own.
Social Media Graphics
Social media has been a very productive outlet for gathering a following, as well as promoting events and merchandise. We encourage you to align yourself with the AQS brand by mentioning us on Facebook, where well over 140,000 quilters follow the American Quilter’s Society.
Use #QuiltWeek to tag your posts, and follow us on Twitter at @AmericanQuilter or Instagram at @aqsonline.
