A Message From the Show Manager

Jennifer Wallin, Show Manager

Thank you for being a part of the 52nd 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.  Our entire team is excited about another great year, and eager to help you have a successful show. Please review the exhibitor kit documents below and let us know if you have any questions as you prepare for the show.  Cheers to a great show!

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.
