Exhibitor Rules

1. All exhibitors must purchase tables to sell or display items at the Symposium. Fees will not be reduced for an exhibitor who provides his/her own table(s), does not need table space, or does not participate for the duration of the symposium. Any additional space used by an exhibitor (e.g., displays, racks, tables brought by exhibitor), will be charged an additional fee and may not be permitted due to lack of space. If you have any questions, please contact the exhibits coordinator. Exhibitors bringing their own tables for additional display space will be charged $300 for each table brought to the exhibit.

2. Each exhibitor receives two badges with the purchase of one table and one additional badge with the purchase of additional tables. Exhibitors must purchase additional badges for members of their company to participate in the symposium. A maximum of three total badges is permitted for each company, regardless of how many tables purchased.

3. Each business must register individually to be represented at the horn symposium. If your business is selling items for another company that will have representatives of its own at the symposium, you are required to register each company as an exhibitor. Failure to do so will mean that the non-registered company will not receive recognition online, in the program book or during the symposium as being a participating exhibitor.

4. Exhibitors may also purchase INFORMATION ONLY SPACE. Exhibitors can have information about their company and products by sending materials (brochures, flyers, samples) that will be prominently displayed and replenished throughout the symposium.

Information-only exhibits: $250

Information-only space does not include a badge for exhibitors, or entrance into the symposium. Companies purchasing information-only space must ship items to the address given below, before June 1, 2016. Items displayed will be arranged by the exhibits coordinator. An additional fee will be charged for those companies wishing to have any left-over items returned.
