PLEASE NOTE: Sponsorship, Exhibit Registration and Event Admission are separate transactions.
Pay the fee and use the space as you see fit. No extra fees if you want to sell merchandise. Each table location has room to sit behind, two chairs and pipe/drape backdrop. Power provided at floor level.
For those wanting a larger, more formal footprint. Booths are either 10'x10' or 12'x8.5', have power, 2 tables and chairs if needed.
Larger, prominent corner locations with nearly double the square footage of a standard booth. Additional tables and chairs can be included at no additional charge. Reserved for Gold Sponsors only, let us know if you're interested.
Choose your location during the registration process! Take a look at the floorpan below to get an idea of what this year's event will look like.
Commit to reveal new product or consider creating something exclusively for Knobcon. Reveals and exclusives will help drive people to the event and to your booth! We will feature all exclusives on the website and social media posts.
The first 1000 people who check in at the event will receive a Knobcon messenger bag full of swag. What swag is in that bag is up to you! Have your literature/giveaways pre-inserted into the bags for a small fee, or for free by becoming an event sponsor. Items will need to be shipped to an outside location for arrival no later than September 1.
We are happy to accept donations of door prizes for the banquet. We will post these prizes on the website and in social media prior to the event. Winners will be drawn at random from the pre-registrations for the banquet and awards will be distributed during the event.
Become a Knobcon sponsor and help underwrite the cost of the event from top to bottom. Sponsor registration is open through August 7. Fees are collected at time of registration.

Friday 4-7pm - Exhibitor Set-Up
Saturday 10am-6pm - Exhibits Open
Sunday 10am-5pm - Exhibits Open
Sunday 5-7pm - Exhibitor Tear-Down
A $100 refundable good faith deposit is required for all Knobcon exhibitors. This deposit is added to your online registration and will be refunded via check beginning at 5pm on Sunday. Failure to follow these guidelines could mean forfeiture of deposit. Checks will be made payable to the primary exhibitor on this registration.
Set up is to be completed by 7pm on Friday. During this time the exhibit halls will be accessible by exhibitors only. Once you have completed your set-up, please be courteous and leave the exhibit hall to allow others to finish.
Exhibits must be in working order for the duration of the exhibit hours. This does not mean that exhibits must be occupied by a person, but that cases should be open and systems powered up for attendees to explore. Outside of exhibit hours, the doors to the exhibit halls will be locked. This also means that the room will be inaccessible until exhibits open the following day, so plan accordingly.
In past years, we have had exhibitors begin packing up early which starts a chain-reaction in the exhibit halls. Not only does this disrupt traffic flow, we feel is is not fair to the attendees who have paid admission. Packing up and leaving before scheduled tear-down on Sunday will mean forfeiture of deposit.
Special arrangements must be made for receiving any equipment, goods, displays or other materials, which will be sent, delivered or brought into the Hotel.
