Rules and Regulations

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

Professional and personal relationships are the cornerstone of the monument industry. Nothing is truer when dealing with consumers, but it is also of great importance for memorialists when dealing with manufacturers and suppliers. It is increasingly more difficult to differentiate manufacturers, suppliers and wholesalers by price alone, making the value of a solid, long-term relationship immeasurable.

MBNA’s Monument Industry Show can help you enhance existing and develop new relationships by bringing you face-to-face with hundreds of memorialists from throughout the United States and Canada. We know your time and resources are limited and want to offer you the most effective and efficient way to make these connections. 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. 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.

  2. Sponsorship Opportunities
    By sponsoring the great events hosted outside the exhibit hall, you can increase your opportunities to talk with attendees and attract them to your booth.

  3. Networking Events on the Show Floor
    MBNA kicks off this year’s exhibit hall with an Opening Happy Hour on the Show floor. Additionally, we stimulate foot traffic by offering various activities on the Show floor throughout the weekend.

  4. Meet more buyers and key decision makers
    You will be able to meet and talk with more buyers and key decision makers in three days that you would be able to in a month. This is a perfect way to maximize your reach in a minimal amount of time!
