The 2019 Annual Diocesan Convention of the Diocese of Washington will take place at Washington National Cathedral on Saturday, January 26, 2019.
If you are interested in being an exhibitor, please fill out this form to a request space to no later than 5:00 p.m., Wednesday, January 9. Space is limited and we may not be able to accommodate all requests.
Applicants will be notified by January 11 of whether or not we are able to accommodate your exhibit request.
In lieu of charging a traditional registration fee, we ask that exhibitors consider making a donation to the diocese. In the event that we are able to accommodate your space request, we will include a link to our online donation page in our confirmation email with a minimum suggested amount.
Specific space assignments will be determined about a week before Convention and set to exhibitors. All decisions are final.
Each exhibit space will consist of a table and two chairs. A covering for the table will be provided. Exhibit tables may not be moved, other than very minor adjustments.
Exhibit materials must be confined to the space of the exhibit table. Invited vendors may request additional space.
Items and signage may not be taped or otherwise attached to walls or other items.
Materials such as handouts, etc., pertaining to the exhibit are to be placed on the exhibit table assigned and shall not be placed anywhere else or handed out in any other fashion.

All exhibits must be removed immediately upon adjournment on Saturday (usually around 4:00 p.m - but occasionally earlier).

Staffing the Exhibits
