The 2017 Marketplace exhibit hall is located at the Greater Columbus Convention Center.
Exhibit space is initially assigned through a lottery process. 85% of exhibit space was assigned in the 2016 lottery. Registering before the lottery deadline, May 10, provides the best chance at a preferred exhibit type/location.
Organizations that exhibited at the 2016 Conference are included in the first round of placement. While Conference staff does its best to accommodate each exhibitor’s preferences for placement, the lottery is intentionally random regardless of how many years an organization has attended. Certain sponsorship benefit packages include preferred exhibit hall placement.
Artists, agents, managers, and vendors promoting yourself, your roster of artists, or a service must purchase an exhibit space package, which includes one full Conference registration.

Prices for remaining exhibit space packages after July 7 increase by $75. Fees for additional registrants are available on the registration page.
* 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.
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.
