Guidelines for Exhibitors
- Due to the size of the facility, we will be unable to provide rods and drapes. We are offering a very nicely attired table top display area with a 6 ft. table, 2 chairs and a wastebasket. See the fee schedule above for displays, with or without electricity.
- Most displays will be in the Washington Ballroom, where coffee breaks will also be held. This is behind the registration area. Additional display locations are in the Main Lobby, the Presidential Hallway outside conference meeting rooms and outside the Crystal Ballroom, site of the plenary sessions and worship.
- The maximum number of tables available is 55; to be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis.
- Exhibits may be set up starting at Noon on the Friday that the conference begins when the exhibit areas open and are available to attendees during and after registration. There are no “closed” hours for exhibits, although the Washington Ballroom will be locked over night, opened by 7 a.m. on Saturday and Sunday mornings.
- All exhibits must be taken down by 10 p.m. on the Sunday when the conference concludes. A $250 surcharge will apply to exhibits that are not cleared by this time.
- Exhibitors will be responsible for transporting, setting up, taking down and clearing out their display materials. Please, do not leave materials to be disposed of by others.
- Once all exhibit spaces are filled, notification will be posted on this page. There will not be attempts to secure additional exhibit spaces once those allotted are filled. Therefore, it is crucial that you complete your application with payment by February 21, 2015.
EAD prefers exhibitor registration with credit card payment, which is available below. There is also the option of registering and paying by mail.
Please review these items before you complete your online registration and payment:
- You must have a credit card to use when registering and paying online. If you do not have a credit card, please use the registration by mail method.
- When you select your choice of options – single or double table – you must also select your choice for SALES and ELECTRICITY from the drop down menu located underneath the picture for the options listed. (They are small so look carefully.) The price will be automatically updated based on the price chart above for the options you select. Please make sure you make the choice that corresponds to your needs so that you are paying the correct amount.
