Door Prizes

Door prizes are required as part of your exhibitor contract. Each exhibitor is responsible for purchasing their own door prize with a minimum value of $100. Email the NACADA Conference Planners at to indicate the prize(s) you will be providing by September 1. You will be responsible for collecting names and making contact with the winner. We suggest requiring that participants be present in order to win. NACADA will not ship the door prize for you in the event the winner is not present. Door prizes should be drawn during the dedicated exhibitor hour on Thursday, October 5 from 4-5 pm. You will be responsible for conducting your drawing. NACADA will help to promote the door prizes leading up to conference and throughout once you have informed us of the prize(s).

Participant List

Purchasers of the conceptual package receive the NACADA Annual Conference participant list of physical mailing addresses for the exhibitor’s one-time use to advertise products or services to registrants two weeks prior to the 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.

Payment Terms & Cancellation Policy

For security reasons, credit card information CANNOT be accepted via email. Exhibitor registration fees must be paid prior to exhibit space designation. Exhibit sponsors may submit registration fees separately from their sponsorship payment; sponsorship funding must be paid within 15 days of signing sponsorship agreement.

Written cancellations must be sent to the NACADA Conference Planners at; telephone cancellations will not be accepted. A fee of $1,000/conceptual exhibitor, $600/relational exhibitor, and $500/informational exhibitor is non-refundable.

NACADA assumes no responsibility for other expenses exhibitors may have incurred in relation to such cancellation. If payments were made to NACADA’s decorator, requests for refunds should be submitted directly to the decorator.

Email Scams

During past conferences, our exhibitors have received emails or phone calls from outside entities claiming to sell NACADA Annual Conference participant mailing lists or offering to make hotel reservations. 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 at NACADA to report any such scams or if you have any questions. Thank you.
