For First Time Exhibitors

The Board of Directors has limited participation to 55 companies. New companies will be admitted on a first come, first served basis, providing they meet the criteria for participation.

There are two options for first time exhibitors to participate.

Option 1 - Suite Option

The average participation cost for exhibitors is $2,700. In addition, there is a start-up fee of $500 for companies that have not participated before.

Fees are determined by the kind of screening suite selected and include:

  • the cost of screening suite, which most companies also use as a sleeping room. Rooms are assigned by a point system established by the NMM Board of Directors based on previous participation in the Market.
  • registration for two company representatives
  • luncheons and receptions
  • professional development sessions
  • Internet access
  • two DVD players
  • one 6′ skirted table and 2 chairs
  • targeted mailings to potential attendees
  • a link from the National Media Market’s website to yours
  • four 8½″ x 11″ pages in our Program Guide.

Option 2 - Table Exhibit

The Market also offers a one-time Introductory Table Exhibit Registration for a $1,500 fee. This is intended to be a cost-effective opportunity to assess future participation. The $500 start-up fee is not applied to table exhibits.

This introductory fee includes:

  • one 6′ skirted table and 2 chairs in a prominent area
  • registration for one representative
  • luncheons and receptions
  • a link from the NMM website to yours
  • an introduction in the Program Guide
