A Great Place to Sell Scrapbooking Supplies

We had a fabulous show in Columbus with Memories Scrapbooking Expo. Sales were higher than expected with this economy, so Memories Scrapbooking Expo did their job promoting it. We loved the layout with ample room for customers in-between booths – very nice!

Vendor, Sparkle ‘N Sprinkle

I loved showing my papers at Memories! Nicely done, friendly show team, great crowd of scrappers and stampers.

Frequently Asked Questions

When I register online, will I receive a confirmation of my order?
Yes, you will receive an email confirmation listing the items you ordered. Review this confirmation closely to ensure your order was submitted correctly. Back by popular demand, we’ve gone TICKETLESS! Simply print your detailed confirmation, and you’re all set.  That confirmation email is your entry ticket to the Expo and any classes or crops that you are attending.


How soon should I arrive before my class starts?
Registration at the show opens one hour before Workshops/Classes begin. Students will have plenty of time to check-in, sign up for door prizes and get questions answered prior to classes — it’s also a great time to look at the class availability list and buy a ticket or two for other great classes you want. We recommend that you arrive in your classroom 5-10 minutes before your class begins, to find a seat and get settled.


Can I change a registration order?
Class exchanges/changes are not accepted so make sure you review the classes closely and make your selections carefully. However, once you’ve submitted your order, if you want to add a class (or two), it’s easy to do. Simply complete the printable Add Form  and fax your additions to us at 740-452-2552 or mail the form to: Memories Scrapbooking Expo™, 1100 Brandywine Blvd Ste H, Zanesville, OH 43701-7303. We’ll do our best to get you in the classes you want.


What is your cancellation policy? Can I get a refund?
All ticket sales are final. There are no refunds.
What is the Memories Scrapbooking Expo™ Web Address?
Is there a show logo I can use on my web site to share this show with my friends?
Yes, put our show logo on your site using one of the following logos. Click on the logo or link to open the image in a new window. Right-click (Windows) or Ctrl-Click (Mac) and choose an option to save the image to your computer. Upload it to your page.

What if I lose my confirmation?
Simply contact us at Expo headquarters and we will verify your registration and send you a replacement confirmation.


Are children allowed at the Expo, and if so, do they need to purchase an admission ticket?
Children 10 and under are free of charge to the show floor. Please note NO children are allowed in classes or Crop Parties (exceptions may be made if the child is accompanied by an adult and participating with a paid class ticket).

Can I sign up for classes at the Expo rather than buying them ahead of time?
Yes, you can purchase class tickets, based on availability, starting at 9 am each day. Note that classes may sell out before the Expo opens, so be sure to register in advance of the show if there is a class that you really don’t want to miss.

Will there be plenty of activities to keep me busy all day?
Yes, there will be many booths, Make & Takes and demos on the show floor, not to mention numerous hands-on workshops to choose from throughout the Expo. You can also join us for the Friday Night Crop Party, Saturday Night Crop Party or purchase a Crop Spot on Saturday to crop the day away!
