Answers to common questions asked by Exhibitors.
How many people attend your conference? Around 400 to 600 nonprofit professionals attend the Center's conference each year.
Are Exhibitor discounts available? Discounts on conference exhibiting and advertising are available to current Members, sponsors, as well as to current Sustainers and Associates. Please check with Lynn Brinkley, Sustainability Assistant, if you are unsure whether you qualify for a discount.
May I register more than one of my staff for the virtual conference? Exhibitor packages include registration, materials, and invitations to receptions for one individual. Any additional staff may register at the regular attendee rates.
May I purchase advertising separately from Exhibitor packages? Yes, digital ads are available à la carte. Please see our Conference advertising page for details.
Are there other ways to promote myself to attendees? Exhibitors may choose to enhance their presence at the event with a booth package that includes advertising and/or a discounted Business Finder listing for visibility beyond the Conference for twelve months on the Center's website.
When can I create the Business Finder listing included in my Exhibitor package? As soon as your Exhibitor payment has been processed (typically less than two to three business days), you will receive instructions containing the coupon code for the webstore. Once you have saved your Business Finder listing, it will be publicly viewable on the Center's website for twelve months, starting from the date you create it.
May Exhibitors attend conference sessions? Yes, of course! Attending sessions is great for professional development and a good networking opportunity. Please be respectful of sessions that require advanced sign-up, which are solely for nonprofit professionals who have reserved a spot.
Will you announce my giveaway to attendees? Hosting a giveaway is a great way to attract attendees. It is the responsibility of the Exhibitor to announce the recipient of giveaways or other competition winners. The Center does not facilitate the announcement or distribution of prizes to winners.
May I have a list of attendees and their contact information? Attendees' contact information is not included in your Exhibitor package. However, you can download a list of attendees' names, titles, websites, organizations at www.conference.ncnonprofits.org ("See Who's Coming").
Are there presenting/speaking opportunities available? The Center typically sends out a request for proposals (RFP) in the spring. Speakers are selected by the conference committee. If you would like to be placed on the list for receiving the RFP email for this year or future conferences, please contact us for consideration.
