2022 Exhibitor Contract

For those exhibitors who will be joining us for the 2022 DFMC Annual Meeting, please refer to the following details. The Diocesan Fiscal Management Conference (DFMC) Annual Meeting will be held September 25-28 at the Marriott Marquis in downtown Washington, DC with exhibition hours Monday and Tuesday. The DFMC Board of Directors and its Members welcome you as an important collaborator in our ministry to the Church!


Honoring Returning Exhibitor Partners and Priority

Last year's returning Exhibitor Partners will receive "full protection" on paid renewals received by the DFMC National Office beginning Monday, March 7th until COB on Wednesday, March 9th with new exhibitors being accommodated thereafter. "Full protection" applies to securing a booth but does not assure the type of booth. Booth types are subject to first come, first served. A concerted effort is made to place booth assignments (a) with spacing between similar exhibitors, where possible; and (b) using total sponsorship levels when multiple exhibitors request the same booth assignments.

Tuesday: 7:00 am - 2:00 pm

All demonstrations and displays, distribution of literature, samples, or other promotional materials must be confined to the exhibitor’s purchased exhibit space.

Use of Space

While the DFMC will make every effort to provide space as it is laid out by the official show director, the DFMC reserves the right to change booth locations or the physical space layout due to unforeseen circumstances. Audio presentations of any kind must be sufficiently subdued as not to annoy or disturb adjacent exhibitors or their patrons. Aisles, as designated on the exhibit floor plan, must be kept clean, clear, and free of obstruction. Easel stands and signs must not be placed beyond the booth area. Gifts and/or door prizes are permitted and encouraged at the display. Any prize drawings are to be held during the lunch break with members on Tuesday, September 27 from 1:30 p.m. to 2:00 p.m.

Names of raffle prize recipients will be drawn by a DFMC Board member from DFMC member registrations; and not from business cards collected at your booth. If the winner is not present to pick up their prize, he or she will pick it up at the registration desk.

Fee

The non-refundable exhibitor fee of $4,500 for Standard Level participation, $9,900 for Gold Level participation, and $17,000 for Platinum Level participation is payable at signing and submission of contract. In order to provide variety for DFMC members, 2021 Platinum sponsors are ineligible to sponsor at the Platinum level in 2022. Since booths are distributed on a first come, first served basis (with returning exhibitors afforded exclusive early access to reserve), we encourage exhibitors to pay by electronic means. If you do pay by check, please make your check payable to Diocesan Fiscal Management Conference (DFMC). Booth reservations are non-refundable. Payments by credit card will be charged a 2.9% credit card processing fee. Acknowledgment is made hereby of the receipt of the Exhibitor Program, which is incorporated with this contract as the governing directives for the show. All booths will be placed and numbered according to the diagram prepared by the official show director. DFMC reserves the right to approve exhibitors to be invited. For exhibit presentations highly reliant on internet access, reserving a wired internet connection is highly recommended.
