The 2018 Marketplace exhibit hall is located at the Indiana Convention Center.
All artists, agents, managers, and vendors attending the Conference to promote yourself, your roster of artists, or a service must purchase or be associated with an exhibit space in order to register and attend.
Marketplace map + lottery
Arts Midwest uses a lottery-based system to assign exhibit space locations for each organization that registers by the exhibitor registration deadline.
Conference staff does its best to accommodate preferred location requests, but ultimately the order in which locations are assigned is completely random regardless of past attendance or how early the registration is submitted. Registering before the exhibitor registration deadline, May 24, provides the best chance at a preferred exhibit type/location.
Certain exhibit space packages have limited availability and are likely to sell out before the exhibitor registration deadline. Register as soon as possible to request a premium or special booth type. In 2017, 96% of the hall sold out during this period. Act now so you don’t miss out on the opportunity to promote yourself, your roster of artists, or a service at the 2018 Conference.
Certain sponsorship benefit packages include preferred exhibit hall placement.

*Agency Registration is reserved for established artists, agents, and managers who receive business privileges without an exhibit space to display materials. Registrants must have a longstanding history with the Conference, and eligibility is subject to approval. Contact the Conference team to inquire.
**Multiple organizations sharing an exhibit space is discouraged. Booth signage, exhibitor listing, and additional opportunities for promotion can only accommodate one organization name per exhibit space.
When the Marketplace is sold out, the Conference maintains an exhibitor waiting list. To be placed on the waiting list, contact the Conference team. Should space become available, Conference staff will contact organizations to discuss the available space. If the organization chooses to purchase the exhibit space package, they need to register and submit payment as instructed within an established time-frame or the space will be offered to the next organization on the waiting list.
