2018 Conference Exhibits and Advertisements

If you offer products or services to those looking for sustainable farming solutions, then this is the event for you!

Last year 1,200 of the most innovative farmers, ranchers, researchers, and food advocates attended this popular annual event. They are eagerly looking for information and products to enhance their businesses and organizations. If you have products or services for family farmers and those advocating for sustainable and organic local food systems, you don’t want to miss this event.

High Traffic! The large exhibit hall is on the main floor in a high traffic area.

Lots of Extras! Included in the fee this year will be pipe and drape backdrops and booth dividers, and wireless internet.

Easy Load-in and Load-out! The large exhibit hall has plenty of conveniently located loading docks, making load-in and load-out a breeze. There are nine loading docks. 

Great Prices! We offer a variety of affordable exhibit options, as well as conference brochure and conference program advertisement opportunities.

Fantastic Lodging! The conference hotel is attached to the Convention Center, providing convenient and hassle-free travel between the exhibit site and hotel accommodations. The Southern SAWG special group lodging rate is just $105.00 per night at the attached Chattanooga Marriott Downtown. We also have great rates at three overflow hotels surrounding the Chattanooga Convention Center, if you miss out on the rooms we have blocked at the Marriott. See our lodging page for more details.
