The best door prizes to give would be electronic gift certificates or gift cards.  Information about how to obtain participant information from the virtual platform will be provided to you so you may select your winner(s).  If you decide that you would like to have a door prize like an iPad or other electronic device, this will be fine.  Just be aware that you will have to pay for shipping the item to the winner.

Participant List

Purchasers of the Conceptual Package receive the NACADA Virtual Annual Conference participant list of physical mailing addresses for the exhibitor’s one-time use to advertise products or services to registrants two-three weeks prior to the Virtual Annual Conference. The list excludes participants who do not wish to receive mailings or do not want directory information released. Please do not share the NACADA participant list with other individuals or institutions.

NACADA adheres to the CAN-SPAM Act and does not release email addresses of its members or event participants. NACADA discourages the sending of emails by exhibitors as these emails may imply, directly or indirectly, the endorsement of exhibitor products or services by NACADA. The NACADA participant list is the property of NACADA. Exhibitors that abuse any of these guidelines will not be granted the privilege to participate at future NACADA events.

NACADA reserves the right to request and review all exhibitor correspondence sent to participants prior to the mailing and to revise/ refuse any content that may reflect a NACADA endorsement of the exhibitors’ products or services.  If you receive calls or emails about purchasing NACADA participant lists, please ignore these scam offers as NACADA does not authorize outside entities to sell participant lists.

Payment Terms & Cancellation Policy

For security reasons, credit card information CANNOT be accepted via email.  Conceptual Package exhibit fees must be paid in full by August 31, 2020.  Exhibit sponsors may submit registration fees separately from their sponsorship payment; sponsorship funding must be paid in full 30 days prior to the NACADA Virtual Annual Conference (by September 4).  Exhibitors may not appear virtually until payments are received in full.  Bev Martin will contact you with instructions on how to make exhibitor registration payments online.

There will be no refunds for NACADA’s Virtual Annual Conference pre- or post-event for an exhibitor’s inability to participate. This includes the Conceptual Package registration and Sponsorships in addition to the package. In the unlikely event that NACADA would cancel this event prior to its start date, NACADA assumes no responsibility for other expenses exhibitors may have incurred in relation to such cancellation.

Registrations for additional exhibit representatives will not be refunded after September 15, 2020. Any request for refund of additional registrations must be made in writing prior to the September 15 deadline.  Any refunds for additional representatives will be issued after the Virtual Annual Conference.

Email Scams

During past conferences, our exhibitors have received emails or phone calls from outside entites claiming to sell NACADA annual conference participant mailing lists.  NACADA has no affiliation with these entities, so please be aware that these are scams and feel free to ignore, hang up, or delete as appropriate.  Contact Bev Martin at NACADA to report any such scams or if you have any questions. Thank you.
