Exhibitors

We realize the unprecedented times we are in, and the Tri-State Seminar, LLC Board of Managers is working hard behind the scenes to make decisions regarding the 2020 Tri-State Seminar. As of now, the TSS is scheduled to continue as planned, August 11 – 13, 2020. Due to the uncertainty with COVID-19 and federal, state, and local protocols, we have decided to delay all registration until at least May 15. Please check our website often for the latest details. Thank you for your patience, and stay safe!

Why Exhibit With Us?

The Tri-State Seminar, LLC takes pride in hosting the largest annual event for water and wastewater industry training west of the Mississippi. From its humble beginnings in 1984 with 75 attendees, the Tri-State Seminar continually draws attendees from water purveyors, agencies and manufacturers from the Western US and around the world!

Tri- State Seminar would not be what it is today without the continued support of our exhibiting vendors. Many of you have been exhibiting at the seminar since the beginning and the growth we’ve experienced is a true testament to the dedication of our vendors to the water and wastewater industry.

Badges

All Exhibit Booth Personnel need to be registered. Exhibitors will receive 2 complimentary badges per 10’ x 10’ booth space. When you register your booth, you will have the opportunity to add your booth personnel. Once your complimentary badges have been registered, our system will automatically begin charging for additional badges. Additional badges are $98.00 per badge, through July 5, 2020.

We encourage you to register your staff at the time that you complete your booth registration. Modifications to your booth personnel can be made online using your email address and confirmation number. Beginning July 6, 2020, the cost of additional badges will be increased to $124.00 per badge. All Exhibitor Badges will be available for pickup during setup at Exhibitor Registration which is located outside the Exhibit Hall, near the Arena.

****All exhibitor badges that are registered onsite (complimentary or additional badges) will be charged at $124 per badge. Badge reprints will also be charged at $124 each****

 

Sponsorship

This year sponsorship registration has been separated from exhibitor registration. If you would like to register as both an exhibitor and a sponsor, you will need to register twice. And because each registration must be affiliated with a unique email address, you should consider using a co-worker’s email address or alternate email address for one of the registrations.

 

Cancellations/Refunds/No-Shows

Cancellations must be received in writing by Friday, July 26, 2020 - 5:00 pm (PDT). Cancellation requests after July 26, 2020 – 5:00 pm (PDT) are no longer eligible for refund.

Any Company not occupying their booth space(s) by Tuesday, August 6, 2020 – 1:00 pm (PDT), Tri-State Seminar, LLC reserves the right to resell the space(s) with no refund/compensation to the original booth purchaser.

 

Other Items to Note

We have planned the Exhibition at the Tri-State Seminar for the benefit of our Attendees.  Exhibitors are NOT ALLOWED to conduct events (dinners, hospitality suites, tours, etc.) during the Tri-State Seminar hours.  These actions compromise the integrity of the Tri-State Seminar, and we appreciate your cooperation in respecting the attendee schedule for the Tri-State Seminar.  Conducting events during Tri-State Seminar hours will result in your company NOT being invited back in future years.  Tri-State Seminar hours are:

Monday, August 5, 2020 from 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Tuesday, August 6, 2020 from 7:30 am - 7:00 pm

Wednesday, August 7, 2020 from 7:30 am - 6:30 pm

Thursday, August 8, 2020 from 7:30 am - 3:50 pm

Subleasing booth space is NOT ALLOWED, except for companies that are manufacturer's representatives.  Subleasing booth space may result in your company NOT being invited back in future years. 

Dismantling prior to the Exhibition officially closing on Wednesday, August 7, 2020 at 6:30 pm may result in your company NOT being invited back in future years.

Participating in the Tri-State Seminar as a Speaker or Sponsor, or purchasing advertising space in the Tri-State Seminar Magazine or Show Guide and Directory, does NOT guarantee a booth in the Exhibition.  The only way to guarantee a booth in the Exhibition is to complete the Exhibitor Registration through the online portal, once available.
