Thank you for your interest in exhibiting during The Big E Centennial in 2016.
The Big E takes place at Eastern States Exposition September 16-October 2. It is the largest fair in the Northeast; we annually attract over one million people through our gates during our 17-day run.
We are always looking for exhibits that have new and different products from those we annually present.
In order for us to consider your exhibit and product presentation, we will need the following information:
Step 1 – Send a letter of intent (we do not use applications) including:
a.) A list of products you will be selling
b.) A list of other shows in which you have participated
c.) A photograph of your display or artist rendering
Please note: We require professionally built displays that include back and side hard walls, counters (no draped tables), indirect lighting, carpeting, etc.
Step 2 – Mail the information to:
Eastern States Exposition
1305 Memorial Avenue
West Springfield MA 01089
Once the package is received and the Sales department has reviewed the information, a letter will be mailed to the potential exhibitor. Please be patient.
Renewals and New Applicants
Previous exhibitors and concessionaires are given consideration on an annual basis and may be invited to contract for the same space, unless performance has been unsatisfactory. Because of the large number of requests for space and the large percentage of exhibitors and concessionaires who wish to return each year, we usually only have limited space available to new applicants or current exhibitors who wish to gain additional space. New applicants are selected based on the uniqueness of the product/service, appearance of the display and availability of space. The application will be held on file until it is deemed we will not have space to offer. All applications will receive due consideration. Exhibit selection will begin in January and continues until all space is allocated.
EXHIBITS MUST BE MANNED DAILY FROM 10:00AM TO 10:00PM
CONTRACTING AND BOOTH PAYMENT
If you are selected to receive an agreement, you will be given two (2) weeks to return the executed agreement along with one-third (1/3) of the rental fee. The balance of the rental fee is due on June 30.
CERTIFICATE OF INSURANCE
Your certificate of insurance must be received by our office no later than July 1; if you are purchasing insurance through the Eastern States Exposition, payment must also be received by our office no later than July 1.
