2018 Exhibitor Information 

A Message From Your Show Manager

Jennifer Wallin, Show Manager

Thank you for being a part of the 51st annual Southern Christmas Show! Though originally from South Carolina, I have lived in Charlotte since 1989, which also means that attending the Southern Christmas Show has been a tradition in my family for many years.  I had the privilege of working for Southern Shows for eight years (2003-2011) as a Show Manager for the Southern Women’s Shows in Memphis and Orlando.  I joined Marketplace Events in 2016 as the Brand Manager for our portfolio of Holiday Shows.  I am now Show Manager for the Southern Christmas Show and the Southern Spring Show—two community institutions held each year at the Park Expo & Conference Center.  I am particularly excited to have the opportunity to work on the finest Christmas Show in all of North America.  It is an honor to work on such a beloved event. I look forward work with you, our valued exhibitors, for many years to come.


We are currently on show site. If you need immediate assistance please call the on-site show office at 704.347.8787


The Exhibitor Kit will not be printed or mailed to you. We are reducing our paper trail by sending out our information via email and posting these important items on our website.

Job Board

Many of you have reached out to us asking if we have a source for temporary help… apparently some of you need a few more Elves to work your booth at the show!

We’ve created a little something that we hope will be of assistance to you: the Southern Christmas Show Job Board. Here you can post your onsite Help Wanted listing for free.
