Exhibitor Rules & Regulations

All tables are 6 ft. Each exhibitor is allotted one additional badge for each two tables purchased. A maximum of four total badges is permitted for each company, regardless of how many tables are purchased. Additional personnel must register as participants for the symposium. All sales are final. 

All exhibitors must purchase tables to sell or display items at the Symposium. Fees will not be reduced for exhibitors who provide his/her own table(s), does not need table space, or do not participate for the duration of the symposium. Exhibitors bringing their own tables for additional display space will be charged $110 for each table brought to the exhibit.

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.Exhibitors may also purchase “Informational Displays.” Exhibitors can have information about their company and products prominently displayed and replenished throughout the symposium by sending materials (brochures, flyers, samples) to the address given below, before July 1, 2015. Items displayed will be arranged by the exhibits coordinator. An additional fee will be assessed for those companies wishing to have any left-over items returned. Informational Display space does not include a badge for exhibitors, or entrance into the symposium.
