2019 Shriners International Session Marketplace



About the Marketplace

Trade Show Application

Exhibitor booths will be reserved in the order that deposits have been received.

Applications received the same date will be processed by descending value of the entire rental. Reserved booths will be made available to other vendors if they are not paid in full by the cutoff. 

The 10’ x 10’ booth includes one eight (8) foot table with skirt, two chairs, individual draped dividers, one company identification sign, and an alphabetical listing and location in the 145th Imperial Session Program Book. The Program Book Committee will contact you with additional advertising opportunities. Other amenities will be the responsibility of exhibitor.

The Trade Show area is extremely popular and sells out quickly each year. The location can accommodate up to 250 booths. Refer to the Exhibitor hall layout below for booth selection(s). We ask that exhibitors select the number of requested booths in each two areas in order of preference. 

Take this opportunity to display your wares and interact with our Nobles, neighbors and friends here in Nashville, TN.
