IMPORTANT: Booth selection policy for Horse Expo 2024
The floor plan may change slightly as we continue to improve the show. When the floor plan is ready later in the year, an email will be sent to everyone registered at that point with directions on how to choose your location. This year we will work on a queue system for booth locations. Below is the order that queue positions will be assigned:
Returning exhibitors signed up* by July 31st, 2023 will have the option to keep the location they had last year, or be assigned a queue number in the order that they signed up*.
Returning exhibitors signed up* after July 31st, 2023 will be placed in the queue with new and returning exhibitors. Previous locations will not be guaranteed after this date.
New exhibitors will be assigned a queue number in the order they signed up*, after returning exhibitors that have signed up* by July 31st, 2023.
*Sign up will be deemed complete, when Horse Expo Canada has received your Horse Expo 2024 Exhibitor Registration (this form), you’ve been invoiced, and we have received the first payment as per your invoice.
Please note: If your 2023 booth had a corner, and you request the same location, you should choose the "I need a corner (+$75)" option above. If you indicate a middle spot is ok, you may not receive your same location.
