Information and Regulations for Exhibitors

The 49th International Horn Symposium

Federal University of Rio Grande do Norte

Natal, Brazil

June 26-30, 2017

Rules and Fees for Display Space

Display space is available through the purchase of a 6-foot table space:

Sound exhibitors:

First Table:                                $400 US, includes two exhibitor badges

Each additional table:                   $50 US

After March 1, 2017:                   $450 registration, including two exhibitor badges

Non-Sound Exhibitors:

First Table:                                $350, includes two exhibitor badges

Each additional table:                   $40

After March 1, 2017                    $400, includes two exhibitor badges




  1. All exhibitors must purchase tables to sell or display items at the Symposium. Fees will not be reduced for an exhibitor who provides his/her own table(s), does not need table space, or does not participate for the duration of the symposium. Any additional space used by an exhibitor (e.g., displays, racks, tables brought by exhibitor), will be charged an additional fee and may not be permitted due to lack of space. If you have any questions, please contact the exhibits coordinator. Exhibitors bringing their own tables for additional display space will be charged $300 for each table brought to the exhibit.
  1. Each exhibitor receives two badges with the purchase of one table and one additional badge with the purchase of additional tables. Exhibitors must purchase additional badges for members of their company to participate in the symposium. A maximum of three total badges is permitted for each company, regardless of how many tables purchased.
  1. Each business must register individually to be represented at the horn symposium. If your business is selling items for another company that will have representatives of its own at the symposium, you are required to register each company as an exhibitor. Failure to do so will mean that the non-registered company will not receive recognition online, in the program book or during the symposium as being a participating exhibitor.
  1. Exhibitors may also purchase INFORMATION ONLY SPACE. Exhibitors can have information about their company and products by sending materials (brochures, flyers, samples) that will be prominently displayed and replenished throughout the symposium.

Information-only exhibits: $200

Information-only space does not include a badge for exhibitors, or entrance into the symposium. Companies purchasing information-only space must ship items to the address given below, before April 28, 2017. Items displayed will be arranged by the exhibits coordinator. An additional fee will be charged for those companies wishing to have any left-over items returned.

Assignment of Display Space


All table coverings and display items are to be provided by the exhibitor. Information regarding Internet access and electrical outlet access is available from the IHS Symposium Exhibitors Coordinator after registration closes.
