EXHIBITOR REGISTRATION IS LIVE
We are seeking exhibitors of arts, crafts, and items/services related to women and spirituality. Acceptance will be determined by the tradition of the conference and a need to maintain varied exhibitions. Applications are due by March 1 at which time all applicants will be juried. Notification of acceptance will be sent by the end of March.
Applications will be reviewed and accepted by our organizing committee using the following criteria:
- exhibitor provides a service or product related to women and spirituality or of interest to our participants
- exhibitor (if returning from subsequent years) has followed all expectations regarding completing paperwork, meeting deadlines and providing requested information
- exhibitor has behaved in a way that contributed positively to the conference community
We will provide a complimentary “Information only” table. It is not necessary to complete the exhibitor application form for the “Information Only” table. If you would like to place your materials on the general information table, please either bring them to the conference or mail them by September 1 to the Women and Spirituality mailing address. However, due to limited space, there is a maximum of 50 pieces per organization.
Load in– Exhibitors load in is on Friday evening from 3-8pm. We will have drive-in access to the Civic Center for easy transfer of your materials.
Exhibit hours– Exhibit room hours are 8am-6:30pm on Saturday and 8am-4pm on Sunday.
Load out– Exhibitors will be able to load out on Sunday from 4pm-6pm.
