Exhibitors

(Please read carefully)

T4G is a biennial conference for pastors and church leaders. Therefore, it is our hope to partner with exhibitors, advertisers, and publishers whose aim is to serve pastors, future pastors, church staff, and church leadership.  

What is the application process?
All organizations desiring to partner with T4G are required to apply using the application link at the bottom of this page. T4G desires to partner with organizations that support our vision, beliefs, and purpose and therefore each application goes through a careful review process. An application that is not accepted by T4G should not be received as a rejection of the organization itself; we are simply trying to closely match the goals of T4G with the goals of partnering organizations.

Changes for T4G 2018
We are returning to Louisville, KY for our seventh conference, but under new constraints. The Kentucky International Convention Center (KICC) is undergoing renovation and will be unavailable. Therefore, T4G is using the The Galt House Hotel for exhibit and bookstore space in addition to the Yum! Center for more exhibit space and a small, unique bookstore on the main concourse. Further, we are offering some new advertising and exhibiting opportunities to applicants. Please pay careful attention as you fill out the application.

 

Exhibiting Opportunities

You have the option to choose one or some combination of the following options:

What to expect from each location:
  • Corridor #1: This corridor will see traffic from those staying at the Galt House Hotel (2,500+), those participating in the T4G Meal Plan (3,000+), as well as those who are looking to avoid the bottleneck traffic of the skywalk that connects the Yum! Center and the Galt House Hotel.
  • Corridor #2: This corridor will see traffic from the bookstores, T4G Meal Plan, and Galt House Hotel.
  • Bookstores #1 and #2: Bookstore #1 will have unique titles not included in Bookstore #2, encouraging traffic to both locations.
  • Yum – 2nd Level: The Yum! Center main seating area holds 8,000 and fills from the second level, requiring attendees to pass by T4G exhibit locations and Bookstore #3, which will hold unique titles not included in Bookstore #1 or #2.

Notes:
1. More than one exhibit space may be applied for. (Example: Apply for one booth in Yum! and one booth in Galt or apply for two booths in Galt)
2. No electricity or wifi: The name of a show decorator will be provided upon acceptance of application through whom arrangements may be made.
3. For-profit organizations should double the prices listed above.

All exhibits include:

  • Conference Registrations
    • $2,000 or $3,000 booths will receive two registrations
    • $6,000 booths will receive four registrations
    • $25,000 booths will receive six registrations
    • Upon payment for exhibitor booth, you will receive an email confirmation with a comp registration link that can be used to register either two, four, or six people. Please be sure to only use the comped registrations for the number of people that are permitted above.
    • Note: Security of our attendees and ministry partners is of first concern. Each passing year brings greater security concerns on the part of both insurance companies and those who lease space. Everyone must be registered to the conference database and wear the conference-provided credential.  Access to the exhibit hall, plenary sessions, and breakout sessions will only be gained if the official T4G 2018 wristband is worn—this is applicable to students, speakers, bookstore operators, and exhibitors.  In short, the policy is “No wristband, no access.” If the conference sells out, no additional slots will be opened for anyone, including ministry partners.  Is there good news?  Yes!  All resources (i.e. free book giveaways and talks) will be available to everyone with a wristband.
  • Draped back wall
  • Skirted table and chair
  • 7” x 44” identification sign
  • Trash can
