What is the PTXPOasis Club?

We know that being on a trade show floor for hours a day, multiple days in a row can be tough and take a toll on attendees and exhibitors alike. That's why we've created the PTXPOasis, a respite and refuge on the show floor where invited guests can rest comfortably in between exhibitor discovery, meetings and educational sessions. Catch up on business back at home base. Find a semiprivate pod for a quiet meeting or socializing. Take time out to simply rest and rejuvenate.

As elite ticketed VIPs of PTXPOasis Club Room, guests will enjoy complimentary:

  • Access to the full event with a VIP fast-line registration at the start of the show
  • A welcome gift to be redeemed at check-in
  • Convention center parking validation
  • Coffee, tea, water, soda and light snacks during the show hours
  • Device charging lockers to power up without slowing down
  • Device charging tables to connect while keeping business going
  • High-speed Wi-Fi
  • Concierge services to provide answers about the show or help recommend local restaurants, attractions and meeting spots
  • A coat and luggage check to secure personal items while exploring the exhibits and showfloor education
  • Access to small, semiprivate meeting pods to enhance networking

A PTXPOasis Club Room voucher is regularly priced at $349/person.
