Registration Categories

 

Ag Retailer/Grain Elevator: $40 early/$50 regular

Are you an employee (or the spouse of an employee) of an ag retailer or grain elevator? If so, you may register in this category.

Exhibitors: $40 early/$50 regular

Is your company exhibiting? If so, you may register in this category. 


Industry (Non-Exhibitor) Attendee: $300 Member/$625 Non-Member

Do you:

  • work for a company that manufactures, produces, sells, distributes, buys, brokers, or has services related to fertilizer, pesticide, seed, feed, grain, or equipment products and your company is not exhibiting?

  • plan on soliciting business, but don't want to register as an exhibitor?

Then you must register in this category. Employees that fit this category who do not wish to register as an exhibitor may solicit business ONLY if registered as an Industry Non-Exhibitor.


The Ag Expo Committee reserves the right to make the final determination as to who qualifies for what category of registration.


Roaming Exhibitor: $300 Member/$625 Non-member

Do you wish to solicit business at Ag Expo? Then you can register in this category, or you can sign up for a booth. Roaming exhibitors do not have an exhibitor table but may solicit business at Ag Expo. Companies registered as roaming exhibitors will be listed in the program's exhibitor list. The rules for exhibitors (aside from booth specifications) also apply to all roaming exhibitor registrants-please carefully review this information.


Student Attendee: Complimentary

High school, tech school or college students may attend Ag Expo for no fee, but this must be pre-arranged through the school.


Solicitors not Registering as Exhibitors

The SDABA and SDGFA host the Ag Expo as a convenience for companies wishing to solicit business. Every individual or firm that engages in solicitation or recruiting during Ag Expo must register as an exhibitor and pay an exhibitor fee. Solicitation and recruiting are defined as conducting any of the following activities anywhere on the conference hotel property, lobby, hallways, and meeting rooms or in the exhibit hall:

  1. Distributing literature, brochures, corporate name/logo items or electronic media promoting a company, or its products or services.

  2. Wearing or carrying any button, badge or sign promoting a company, or its products or services (logo apparel is normally acceptable but the Ag Expo Committee reserves the right to determine acceptability).

  3. Verbally prospecting for buyers of a company's products or services; verbally making a sales pitch or proposal that promotes a company, its products or services.

It is the policy of Ag Expo to treat a company as an exhibitor if they have ever been an exhibitor at a previous Ag Expo's. Other companies will be considered exhibitors by the nature of their business, their services and their clientele. The Ag Expo Committee reserves the right to make the final determination as to who qualifies as an exhibitor and will be assessed exhibitor fees.

Platinum Sponsors Receive Priority Space Assignment
Space Re-Configured

Platinum sponsors will be given priority for space requests if they return their contract by the deadline.

Based on feedback from the last couple years, the luncheon and social will not be held in the Arena again, but will be back in the ballroom as in previous years.  This means there is less room for exhibitors inside, and so we have opened spaces in the hallway again.
