Organizations qualifying for non-profit exhibit space at the Minnesota Dental Association's Star of the North Meeting shall be limited to:
1. Governmental departments or agencies and organizations qualifying for 501(c)(3) or 501 (c)(6) tax exempt status. These include organizations that are educational, charitable, and/or scientific in nature, professional associations, and chambers of commerce; and
2. Education institutions accredited by the American Dental Association's Commission of Dental Accreditation or record-keeping agencies generally recognized by the profession.
The Association reserves the right to reject any application for non-profit booth space for reasons it considers sufficient to indicate that the exhibitor/exhibiting organization may be unable to conform to Association policies.
Booths are 7’6” x 10’ in dimension (unless otherwise noted). Each booth space in the Professional Plaza East and West is priced at $335.00. The back of each booth extends 8’ from the floor with 3’ high dividers between booths. The booth is constructed with aluminum rails on which draperies are hung. Aisle carpeting is blue.
The Association will furnish each non-profit exhibitor booth space with the following:
The listed items will automatically be ordered for the non-profit exhibitor at no additional charge. The exhibitor will be responsible for their own freight charges, charges for special equipment or furniture ordered through GES, and charges for electrical and/or Internet hook-ups from the RiverCentre.
To apply for non-profit exhibit space, organizations must complete the Application for Professional Exhibit Space and Minnesota Tax Form ST-19. Return the completed forms and payment to the Minnesota Dental Association. All applicants are required to pay in full with a check or credit card at the time of application.
Final assignment of exhibit space will be made by February 28. Non-profit exhibit booths will be assigned on a space-available basis only and placed at the discretion of the meeting organizer.
Non-profit exhibitors will receive up to 8 complimentary badges per booth space purchased. If an exhibitor registers more than the complimentary number, the per person registration fee is $20.00.
Booth personnel wishing to attend educational programs must register in the appropriate registration category and pay any applicable registration and course fees. Licensed dentists who are working in the booth, but who are not members of the ADA/MDA, will be required to register as a non-member dentist and pay the applicable registration fee.
Non-profit exhibitors are expected to abide by the provisions of the Rules and Regulations unless otherwise noted.
