CCSA Annual Convention

September 14-17, 2018
The Embassy Suites | St. Charles, MO  



You’re invited to come celebrate with us at the annual CCSA Convention with 4 Days of Education and Inspiration to help studios Build Their Business! 


Exhibitor registration will be starting soon.  I wanted to share some information, so you can start planning before registration opens on June 5 at 3 pm EST. Registration and sponsorship's must be made online and will be granted in the order that they are received. You will not be able to sign up for sponsorship opportunities until registration is open. Once an exhibitor has selected a sponsorship, it will no longer be available.


Registration will be open from Tuesday, June 5th (at 3PM EST)– Wednesday, August 1st (at midnight EST).


Below you will find the exhibit information and sponsorship opportunities to make CCSA 2018 Convention a huge hit. Convention dates are Friday, September 14, through Monday, September 17.


New this year: 

  • We are going to offer private meeting times on the Exhibit Hall floor one hour before it opens and one hour after it closes for general attendees.  This time is designed for Exhibitors to meet with clients one on one for private appointments.  Exhibitors will be responsible for bringing clients to your booth and walking them out of the Exhibit Hall floor for these appointments.  This is optional meeting time with your clients in your booth based on feedback from previous conventions where this was requested by several suppliers.  We realize that there is some overlapping of classes and/or other events.  This will not apply to Friday, September 14 for the pre-opening time or Sunday, September 16 during tear down.  Also, please note that the time on Saturday morning overlaps with the CCSA Member Meeting.  Our attempt was to give you as much time as possible to conduct these meetings and schedule those who are not attending class for the times that overlap.
  • Our New Member/New to Convention Mixer will conclude at 6PM on Friday night and we will usher these attendees down to the Exhibit Hall for a private tour prior to opening the Exhibit Hall at 6:30PM to the general attendees.  We will walk these attendees through the showroom and make general introductions to each company.  More details will be coming soon. 



We’re looking forward to another amazing, fun-filled, successful year and we’re hoping you’ll be a part of this event.
