The theme of the 2018 SPRA Conference is “Recreation Round-Up,” a theme that is in keeping with the ranching heritage of “The Old Cowtown” of Maple Creek and the Cypress Hills area.
Following feedback from tradeshow vendors in the past, the format of the 2018 SPRA Conference Tradeshow will be a departure from the previous format.
Rather than being associated with “RecFest” on the Thursday evening of the conference as in the past, the tradeshow will run during registration, lunch and the afternoon refreshment break during the plenary sessions of the opening day of the conference when delegates are still fresh.
In addition, lunch and refreshments will be served in component parts on four different tables spread throughout the tradeshow areas, thereby compelling delegates to search out the food and refreshment stations among the tradeshow exhibits in order to “Round-Up” the complete lunch and refreshment break offering.
Also, the menu for the luncheon will be finger foods that can be consumed standing up, allowing delegates to browse the tradeshow exhibits and interact with exhibitors as they eat their lunches and enjoy their afternoon refreshment break.
Maple Creek Legion Hall (110 Maple Street)

Tradeshow booths will be set-up in the “Meeting Room” and the “Normandy Room” at the Maple Creek Legion Hall. These rooms are adjacent to the main plenary session hall allowing for the free flow of delegates between the spaces.
Given the limited space within the Maple Creek Legion Hall there will be a limited number of tradeshow booth opportunities. Booths will be booked on a first-come-first-serve basis.
