Selection Process

Exhibitors and concessionaires from the previous year are usually offered the opportunity to return. New applicants are selected based on uniqueness of products/services, booth design (ability to set a professional and attractive display), application presentation, experience, availability of space and appropriateness of product type for available space. Completing an application does not guarantee space. The application will be held on file until all space is sold. Regardless of the status of the application, applicants are notified as soon as a determination has been made.

Contract and Payment

If you are selected to receive a contact, you will be given two weeks to return the executed contract along with one half of the rental fee. Acceptable methods of payment are, cashiers check, money order, Visa or MasterCard. Refunds are not given on canceled contacts after June 1. All balances must be paid on or before June 15.
