Hard hat stickers scavenger hunt:

We will be handing out 500 hard hats to the kids in attendance for the Hard Hat Scavenger Hunt.  This is a great way for kids and parents to get involved and generates traffic for you! If you would like to participate, we ask that you keep the stickers to around 1" x 2" or less in size.  We will hand out a flyer for each participating booth and will enter all of the kids that collect all of the stickers in a drawing for a prize.  When you check in for the show, you will be asked if you will be participating.

Returning exhibitors will have priority of reserving the same booth as previous years providing they submit their contract by Thursday, February 15, 2018. The Williston Area Builders Association reserves the right  to change or assign booth space at any time for any reason.

Booth Construction:  The normal height restriction for all exhibits or portions thereof is eight (8) feet in the rear, three (3) feet on the sides.  Please note on application contract if exhibit is taller than normal booth sizes.  Custom-built displays are desirable and more effective because of their eye appeal.  All custom displays should be built four inches narrower than actual booth specifications in order to insure proper fit.  Standard booths are 10’ x 10’.  If it is not possible to have a custom-built booth, exhibitors may utilize the standard booth equipment which is furnished by the show.  This equipment consists of drapes suspended on covered supports, eight feet at the back and thirty-four inches on the sides.  Tables and chairs will be provided upon request.  Exhibitors will not apply paint, lacquer, adhesive, or any other coating to the building floors, columns, etc., or to the standard booth equipment.  All exposed edges of carpeting or other floor covering must be taped down.  Exhibitor’s booth must be able to pass fire marshal’s inspections, and for this reason nonflammable materials are recommended.  Exhibits shall be constructed and arranged so they do not obstruct the general view or hide the exhibits of others.  Floor coverings and display items shall be confined to the exhibit space leaving the aisles open for public safety and traffic. 

Character of Exhibits:  Preferred products and services displayed are those pertinent to the building industry for home and garden use or closely related to this field.  Exhibits should be attractive and demonstrative so the purpose of providing the maximum in educational and informational opportunities to the public can be met.  Exhibitors are requested to cooperate at all times with the show officials by manning and maintaining their exhibits throughout the exhibition.  Each exhibitor agrees to have a representative(s) in attendance at their booth during the hours of the show.

Selling:  All sales of products and/or services will be allowed.  No canvassing, solicitation of business, or conferences in the interest of business, products except by exhibitors will be permitted in the exposition.  Canvassing must be confined to exhibitor’s rented space, and all sales activities and services must take place within that space.
