Who can register?

NEAC’s shows are open to retail buyers only. If you haven’t been to one of our shows in the past, please plan to bring proof that you are a retailer: business card, letterhead, company check, tax ID number or the address for your store’s website.

Many retailers ask about bringing employees, friends or relatives who help them pick merchandise. YES! Please register everyone in your party who is coming along to help you shop. Please note, we’re sorry, but children and pets (other than service animals) are not allowed.

When is the last day to register online?

Pre-registration closes at 11:59 pm on the Thursday before the show. 

Can I register on-site?

Absolutely – we are happy to help you register on-site.

Can I register my team with the same email address?


I’m registered but am unable to attend. Can I transfer my registration to someone else?

Please ask your replacement to register on-site when they arrive.

What are the food options on-site?

The Doubletree Manchester Downtown features a coffee shop – the Daily Brew – that is open every day from 8 am – 1 pm where you can purchase hot and cold beverages, salads, sandwiches, and snacks.

Show concessions will be available every day starting at 11 am and will feature a range of salads, sandwiches, and hot food.

We also have a daily snack and coffee break during the afternoon.

Where can I park, and what are the rates?

Park in the DoubleTree parking garage. You can access the show floor from the third floor of the garage. NEAC validates parking – you will be charged $7/day or $12.75 overnight.
