NQC Exhibitor Packet


NQC Lease Agreement – Download
The lease agreement is binding on all NQC exhibitors. You do not need to execute and return it.


You do not need to register in advance for your badges, however, remember that you are limited to four badges for your first booth and 2 additional badges for each additional booth. Any additional badges you need will need to be purchased on site for $75.00 each. (Performing members of Main Stage and Showcase Artists will receive Artist Badges in addition to the exhibitor badges.) You may pick up your badges upon arrival at the counter labeled “Information” located located at the main entrance of the LeConte Center.
