The Expo: Twice annually Midwest Mountaineering hosts the Outdoor Adventure Expo, typically the last weekend of April (Spring Expo) and the second weekend of November (Winter Expo). We blow the doors out and rent large exposition tents that cover our entire parking lot, creating a very large venue that is somewhat like a small-scale state fair for outdoors enthusiasts. Your organization may benefit greatly from being represented at this event. To get an idea of the scope of things, and to look for your preferred booth location, please follow the hyperlink to the Expo Floor Layout Map below.
Set-Up and Take-Down Schedule: The Expo starts at 2:00p.m. on Friday. All exhibitors must be set up at that time. Expo hours are as follows:
Booth General Description: All booths include one draped table, two folding chair(s), standard exhibit backdrop, and divider. The curtained backdrop is 8’ high and dividers between booths are 3’ high. You can pin or hang lightweight items to the backdrop. There will no be provisions for hanging heavy items or tying to ceiling beams. Exhibitors supply all signs and other promotional materials. Display should not block adjacent booth sight lines.
We are excited to announce that we have moved the Expo exhibitors right across 19th Avenue to the climate-controlled and dry Humphrey School of Public Affairs. There will be no more frigid digits and water making its way into your spaces.
Our featured speakers have been enjoying the Cowles Auditorium in the Humphrey for over a decade. The exhibitor booths will be in the Humphrey Atrium, just outside the Auditorium. We expect our non-profit booths will be adjacent to the Atrium in the Humphrey Forum.
We expect to have fewer booths, so register immediately before they’re all gone!
Signed Exhibitor Booth/Table Registration forms must be received by October 15th, with payment in full, to reserve your space. An e-mail confirmation will be sent to you after we receive your signed registration and payment in full.
You must staff your booth during the following times:
Exhibitors may not sell any merchandise (except non-profits may sell small promotional items like caps and coffee cups with their logo) without permission from Midwest Mountaineering. The Exhibitor Selling Agreement must be filled out and approved. Midwest Mountaineering does not allow the sale of merchandise that competes with its own merchandise.
An 8’ wide x 6’ deep booth with a 6’ draped table, 2 chairs, pipe and drape in the Humphrey Atrium is $425. The curtained backdrop is 8’ high and dividers between booths are 3’ high. You can pin or hang lightweight items to the backdrop. There will no be provisions for hanging heavy items or tying to ceiling beams.
