Exhibitor Fees


In order to remain strong financially as our event moves into the future, an increase in the 2019 fee for commercial exhibitors has been put in place. This modest increase will bring us more into line with meeting our current cost structure and still represent an excellent value to our commercial exhibitors.
 
We are happy to be able to keep our booth fee for non-commercial exhibitors at $25.00 per space. This is intended only to recover costs. Each space has a cost associated with it due to the facility fees charged by MSU and the fact that each space is equipped with a rented table, rented chairs, printed name badges, and program booklets.  We believe that QWS is a unique event that offers both commercial and non-commercial exhibitors a rare opportunity to engage with a large audience and make valuable connections. We hope you see the value in participating in QWS and transition with us to an event that will continue to serve those who love non-motorized outdoor recreation.
 
This year the Board of Directors has found that we must increase our guest admission fee. We have held off this increase for a decade but current fiscal realities including significant cost increases in production of the symposium have made this action inevitable.  This year adult admission will be $15.00 per person.  In keeping with our belief that the future of our environment and outdoor recreation lies with the young, we will be keeping our student admission price at $5.00 and children under 12 will continue to be admitted for no charge.
