Rules and Regulations

Your products may withstand the tests of time but what about your professional and personal relationships?

Nothing replaces the strength of a memorialist’s trust in the knowledge that a vendor partner will deliver on their promises. That is why professional and personal relationships are the cornerstone of the monument industry. And at a time when it is increasingly more difficult for manufacturers, suppliers and wholesalers to differentiate by price alone, the value of a solid, long-term relationship is immeasurable.

Only MBNA’s Monument Industry Show helps you enhance and develop those relationships by bringing you face-to-face with hundreds of memorialists from throughout the United States and Canada, making it the most effective and efficient use of your time and resources. It is an excellent opportunity for you to meet with key decision makers with purchasing power, develop new customer relationships and boost existing ones.

GREAT REASONS TO EXHIBIT

  1. Dedicated Exhibit Hours
    No convention-related events are scheduled during show hours, allowing you maximum time to meet with your current and prospective customers.

  2. Networking Events on the Show Floor
    MBNA kicks off this year’s exhibit hall with an Opening Reception on the show floor.

  3. Pre-Show Registration
    Promote your show presence by marketing to those individuals who register in advance. Mailing lists of pre-registered attendees will be provided to all exhibitors.

  4. VIP Registration
    Show your key customers you appreciate their business by providing them with discounted registration to the show (based on number of booths).

  5. Show Floor Activities
    MBNA stimulates foot traffic by offering various activities on the show floor throughout the weekend.
