Registration Information for Exhibitors at the 2017 GBM

As usual, we would like to offer the first opportunity and space allocation to last year’s exhibitors, before we open it up to new manufacturers and suppliers. If you are new to the GBM experience, please contact us at gbm@bcwood.com to get listed at the head of the line for the best available booth space for the 2017 GBM.  You will be notified May 1st.

For returning 2016 Exhibitors, you will be asked to request your number 1, 2 & 3 choices for space. PLEASE NOTE that booths with a WT designation are reserved for participants of the WoodTALKS Mini-Seminar Series for Friday afternoon. If this was your booth space last year and you are NOT participating in that program, please select your next best choice. We will do everything possible to ensure you are happy with your space allocation! As you know, booth space selection is based on a first come-first served basis so register early to get that special space!

At this time, you will not need to register your booth personnel or spouses/guests.  That will be done through a separate log-in site which we will notify you of shortly.
