AETA Bucks Program

The AETA Bucks program is only available to AETA members and stimulates orders between AETA-member buyers and AETA-member exhibitors. The program also provides added incentive for buyers to attend the trade shows.

AETA-member retail buyers receive $250 worth of AETA Bucks upon arrival at the show. The Bucks may be spent at any AETA-member exhibitor booth. Each $100 in AETA Bucks may be applied against an order of $500 or more and the AETA Buck valued at $50 may be applied toward any order valued at $250 or more—a 20% discount compliments of AETA! Exhibitors are encouraged to offer any additional show discounts that they would use to draw in more sales.

On the final day of the show, the exhibitors bring the AETA Bucks they received to the AETA Booth and are immediately reimbursed with a check for the total of the Bucks redeemed.

AETA Bucks Redemption Process:

To qualify to participate in the AETA Bucks program, retailers and exhibitors must be members in good standing. To check the status of your membership, contact the AETA office by telephone (717-724-0204) or by email at

To receive their AETA Bucks, retail buyers must go to the AETA Booth upon arrival at the show. They will be given a packet with their AETA Bucks and Golden Ticket. The AETA Booth is located immediately on the right side of the entrance to the exhibit hall.

AETA-member exhibitors will be provided with display signage that designates “Proud Member of AETA. AETA Bucks Welcome Here." In addition, the show directory clearly designates the AETA-member exhibitors.

Buyers will have a yellow ribbon on their show badge identifying them as AETA members. Encourage the buyers to spend their AETA Bucks at your booth! Each order must total a minimum of $500 for every $100 voucher and $250 for each $50 voucher.

Exhibitors attach the bottom copy of the AETA Bucks to the retailer’s purchase order so that the retailer gets proper credit upon shipment. The exhibitor retains the top copy to surrender to AETA on the final day of the show at the time of reimbursement.

AETA Bucks are for the use of AETA members only. They are non-transferable and have a space for signature of both the buyer and the exhibitor. Each certificate is numbered and will be checked against the master list upon presentation.
