More Information


Do I have to be a member of ICCFA in order to exhibit?

NO! Anyone can exhibit (ICCFA members or non-members). However, booth rates are lower for ICCFA members by $500. If your company has never been a member of the ICCFA, an introductory membership is available for just $245. Become a member and enjoy both the lower booth prices along with other great membership benefits.

Do I pay for my booth now?

Upfront payment is welcomed, but not necessary. A minimum $500 deposit is required for each 10′ x 10′ booth requested. The remaining balance is due by 02/02/2018, and will be processed on the same card used to place your deposit.

What can I do to draw attention to my booth?

Advertising your booth number in the January, February, and the March/April issues of ICCFA Magazine is a great way to tell people your booth number and inform attendees of any give-a-ways you have for the convention (reduced rate for convention attendees, etc.).

Where will the 2019 Convention be held?

The Charlotte Convention Center in Charlotte, North Carolina.
