Prior to arriving at the Show

  • Pre-register by using the online portal, returning the PDF registration form or calling the FSPA office (941-952-9293).  This will reduce your time in the registration area.  Your bar code confirmation will be scanned (from a print out or from your phone) and a badge printed with limited contact.  
  • Review the Waiver and Release of Liability.  You will be required to sign this when you arrive at registration and pick up your badge.  
  • Please pack a face mask; this is required at all times.  
  • Complete a health self-assessment.  Are you experiencing any symptoms?  If you feel sick, please stay home.  Refer to the CDC website for information about COVID related symptoms.
