2021 NFCA CONVENTION EXHIBITOR GUIDELINES



“Our Convention is the best collection of softball talent in the country. It gets bigger and better every year!” – NFCA Past President and Tennessee co-head coach, Karen Weekly

Welcome to the 2021 NFCA National Convention Exhibit Show registration page. With the largest gathering of fastpitch coaches in the country, you won’t want to miss the opportunity to get in front of decision-makers from all levels of our sport at one of the historically highest attended locations, Las Vegas, December 8-11, 2021! The 2021 NFCA Exhibit Show will run on December 9th and 10th.

The 2021 Exhibit Show will offer our largest venue to date. The Exhibit Show has sold out the last four years. Applications will be released for general registration on Wednesday, September 8th at 10 AM ET.

Why exhibit at the Show?
Softball is growing at unprecedented rates. Ultimately, “We have the people that want your product.” - Kris Ganeff, University of Notre Dame Associate Coach

IMPORTANT:
The NFCA uses our loyalty rankings program to determine Convention booth placement. Official Sponsors and Partners have first priority for Convention booth selection. For all other companies, any direct participation with the NFCA helps boost your ranking for Convention booth placement: sponsorship opportunities, advertising dollars, other event booth space, membership status, and much more For more information email Executive Director, Carol Bruggeman, at carol@nfca.org.
