2017 Exhibitor Fees, Deadlines and Rentals
Late Registration – September 1st – 15th
- $150 - Non-profits/Government Organizations (no sales)
- $350 – For-profit Vendors/Organizations (plus 5% of any sales revenue)
Exhibitor fees go towards the shared cost of putting on a large-scale event of this scope – trash and recycling services, restrooms, security, paramedics, and logistical support are all partially covered through exhibitor fees. In order to accommodate as many organizations as possible we keep the cost minimal and do not provide tables, chairs and tents as part of event registration fees.
Canopy/Table/Chair Rental Options:
A to Z Rental Center in Lakewood will be our event rentals provider. If you need rental items, Colorado Parks and Wildlife will collect the rental fees when you register before September 1st and will work with A to Z to put in one large order for the event. Whatever selections of tents, tables and chairs you make when you register will be at the park when you arrive to set-up. Organizations are welcome to bring their own items.
