Summerfest is a hit with TPPA members and with our Vendors, too! Summerfest is our exciting summer event which is held at the La Torretta Lakeside Resort on Lake Conroe, just north of Houston.
Summerfest is a family-friendly, destination event that attracts photographers from across Texas and beyond because of the outstanding programming, the TPPA Annual Photographic Competition and the lure of a resort property which features a water park, a beautiful 18-hole golf course and so much more! Many of our photographers bring their families who enjoy the resort while the photographer takes in the programs. TPPA even hosts evening events for the entire family including two evening meals.
Summerfest does not have a traditional trade show. Instead, we offer a “vendor’s row” in the lobby of the convention center, right outside the only doors to our programs. The lobby is also where people congregate to visit, view the print exhibit and where the registration desk is located. Needless to say, it is a high traffic area.
Participating vendors will be provided a table and two chairs. There will be no traditional pipe and drape. We have scheduled time on Sunday evening to “Meet the Vendors” following our evening meal served lakeside at the TPPA Villa. No other activities are scheduled during this time.
Vendors also man their tables between programs on Monday from 11:30 am – 2 pm and on Tuesday from 11:30 am – 1:30 pm. We anticipate these will be peak times for visiting with participants. Of course, you can be at your table earlier of later if you prefer, but we suggest you take a little time and enjoy the resort, too!

We will have a room available to lock up any valuables that you do not want left out unattended.
The cost to participate in Vendor’s Row is only $200 per table. Tables and space are available on a first-come, first-served basis and while the lobby is quite large and open, space is still limited.
For vendors and partners with TPPA who are not able to join us on “Vendor’s Row”, we also offer Event Sponsorship for only $200. TPPA will use these funds to help provide two free evening picnics for each attendee and their families. We also hope to provide
other snacks and goodies at our evening poolside gatherings. For more information on becoming an Event Sponsor, click here.
