ASCD Empower17 is designed to showcase information, ideas, products, and services for our members and attendees.
To fulfill this goal, the association reserves the right to review all exhibit applications for eligibility.
All applications are subject to approval by ASCD based on the following criteria:
Each booth rental includes four complimentary exhibitor registrations. Additional representatives must pay a registration fee of $50 each. Individuals (including authors, consultants, colleagues, friends, and relatives) who may be associated with the company but who are not working in the booth must pay the regular conference registration fee.
Exhibitors will be able to register their booth staff by December 2016.
Questions? Send an e-mail to the Exhibits Office or call us at 1-703-578-9600, ext. 4629.
ASCD rents booth space on a first come, first served basis for the best available. The cost is a flat per-square-foot fee of $19, plus an additional $200 per corner for corner booths.

You may want to consider the following additional charges when developing your trade show budget:
Electricity (5 AMPS)
6-foot skirted table
Class arm chair
varies depending on location
Labor setup and dismantle
$86 standard ($129 overtime)
Note: Floor covering is required. Because a large number of exhibitors prefer to select and provide their own booth flooring, you must purchase carpet separately.
Special signs, booth construction, apparatus, or lighting fixtures may not exceed the 8-foot high back wall. In straight-line booths, all construction or parts of the display exceeding 4 feet in height must be at least 5 feet in from the aisle.
Interference with the light or space of other exhibits is not permitted. Island areas of 20' x 20' or larger, with the approval of management, may extend up to but not exceed 20 feet in height.
Full payment or 50 percent of the total space rental is due with this application. Any balance remaining is due and payable upon notification of booth assignment and no later than October 1, 2016.
Failure to pay the balance by the deadline will subject the exhibitor to cancellation of the contract and forfeiture of all monies paid.
Full payment is due with all applications submitted after October 1, 2016. Applications received without payment will not be processed.
All cancellations must be made in writing to the Exhibits Manager.
If the exhibits manager receives notification on or before October 1, 2016, 50 percent of the money paid for the rental will be refunded.
Failure to occupy booth space does not release the exhibitor from the obligation to pay for the full cost of the rental. No refunds will be made after October 1, 2016.
If booth space is not occupied by 6:00p.m. on Friday, March 24, 2017, ASCD Exhibit Management will have the right to use such space as it sees fit to eliminate empty spaces in the Exhibit Hall.
In the event of flood, fire, strikes, riots, civil commotion, or other uncontrollable circumstances that render the exhibit area unfit or unavailable for use within 10 days prior to the opening date of the exhibit, 50 percent of the money paid for rental will be refunded.
Register and book your hotel before the hotel cutoff date, March 13, 2017.
Attendees must be 18 years of age or older to attend ASCD Empower17 and the Pre-Conference Institutes.
