We are delighted to have event planners from the Davis and Sacramento campuses join us for the 21st Annual Caterer and Vendor Showcase!

We expect this showcase to feature even more vendors, both new and returning, offering a variety of services, fun interactive booths, as well as an array of UC Davis’ campus approved, registered caterers. After all, it is halloween.


Planner Registration

Registration is complimentary for invited event planners only. However, we do ask that you pre-register for planning purposes. By registering for this event, you give our organization permission to photograph or videotape you during the event (for promotional purposes) and to give your name and email address to all vendors attending the event. Opting out is not an option.

Please remember to bring a copy of your confirmation email for entry into the show. On-site registration will not be provided so you must pre-register to attend.


Costume Contest

Having the showcase on Halloween can only mean one thing - a costume contest! Show us your creativity by rocking out your own costume or teaming up with your friends and co-workers! Your fellow planners at the event, vendors and caterers will be the judges. A prize will be awarded to the best individual costume. Official rules and details will be provided to those interested in participating.


Department Drop-Ins and Limited Edition Souvenir Totes and Pint Glasses

As part of this celebration, Conference and Event Services is reaching out to our community in a continuing effort to raise awareness of the many resources and services we offer. CES is committed to supporting faculty and staff with their meeting and conference needs as projects, workloads, roles and staffing change.

We would appreciate an opportunity to briefly share this information with your department at a future meeting. We can even bring treats! If you can schedule a department drop-in from CES, you will receive a one-of-a-kind, limited edition, souvenir tote or pint glass. Visit our booth at the showcase to learn more or schedule your drop-in here.
