IMPORTANT NOTE

When completing the application, please remember the following:

  • Company Name: If you are a company, this should be your company name. If you are an author or an artist, this should be your public-facing name. This is the name that will be visible to the attendees in our exhibitor list!

  • Logo: This should be a professional quality headshot or your professional logo. This should be an image that our attendees will be able to use to immediately recognize you or your products.

  • Booth Sorting: On TTE, it may be easiest for you to find your preferred booth size by sorting by "Booth Type".

  • Email address: Ensure that you are completing your application from the email address that you would like to use to both receive communication related to the event and manage the exhibitor application. If this changes, please let us know so we can update the email address associated with the application.

  • Utah State Tax Commission: If approved as a exhibitor, you can expect that the Utah State Tax Commission will mail you a temporary sales tax license and a special return to sell in the State of Utah for anyone wishing to sell merchandise. This communication will likely take place 1-2 months prior to the event. Approximately 6-7 weeks ahead of the convention, we will contact you to notify you that the USTC is preparing to contact you and what information they'll need. If you have exhibited in the past, or hold a permanent sales license in Utah, the USTC will use the previous information they have on file for you. If you are a new exhibitor or your information has changed (e.g., mailing address, business status, etc.), you will receive communication from them to confirm your details before sending you those forms. The Dragonsteel Events team will notify you if we learn of any changes to this process.
