Focused, are you involved in the USPTA in some way? If so, let me know as I have another question for you.
The only vendor list I could find is at http://www.uspta.com/html/2008Floorplan.pdf although I was hoping to find one with links to all the vendor websites. If there's another page with vendor website links or just a better list overall, please post that direct link if you don't mind.
No, I am not involved with the USPTA, but I have several friends who are members and teaching pros. If you would like to post a question I will forward it and get an answer for you. I don't know of any other trade show info/vendor list other than the one posted on the USPTA web site. You might want to contact the listed vendors directly. There are several tennis clothing/shoe/equipment vendors listed so there should be some good bargains. There will also be a charity fundraiser silent auction which may include tennis items like racquets autographed by top pros. I believe there is also a full bar and dinner being offered. It is a worthwhile event for anyone in the Palm Desert area to check out.
Sure, I would appreciate that. I was looking around on the USPTA website and noticed that they don't have a forum on their site for members to use. So, I wanted to offer to setup a forum here for them if they would use it. Feel free to pass that offer along if you would like to do so.

We do have a brief description of buying show exhibitors with links to their Web pages. http://usptaworldconference.com/Buyi...xhibitors.html All of them aren't there yet, but we've requested they send us the information.
We also have a forum for members, http://forums.uspta.com, but it's not widely used.
I hope this information helps!
