Convention's Most Anticipated Event

The Tabletop Exhibit & Reception offers suppliers an invaluable opportunity to display their innovations to the industry's top decision-makers and helps renderers stay abreast of developments in the field. Unlike large trade shows that span over days, this focused event places all emphasis on the exhibitors.

Thursday, October 27 @ 7:00 PM

Becoming An Exhibitor

In order to be an exhibitor, there must be one fully registered attendee from your company for the duration of the convention. Following are the Tabletop Exhibitor Fees.

Tabletop Exhibitor Fees


No one will be admitted into the Tabletop Exhibit without a convention badge. If your company has additional employees who will only be attending the Tabletop Exhibit and Reception (and are not registered for the convention), you will need to check the box “Exhibit Badge Only” listed under Tabletop Exhibitor Fees on the Registration Form and provide those employees’ name(s). Additional name badges are $100 each.


Only Registration Forms received with full payment at NARA headquarters by October 9, 2022 will be listed on the Meeting Mobile App.


It is agreed that the North American Renderers Association, Inc., its officers and its staff, and the management of The Ritz-Carlton, Laguna Niguel will not be liable to the exhibitor for any loss, damage or injury to his property contained in such exhibits, or injuries to his person, his agents, employees, or other persons, no matter how sustained from fire, theft, accident, or other causes. All claims for such loss, damage, or injury are being expressly waived by the exhibitor.


For refund information, see the Annual Convention cancellation policy. It is the responsibility of the exhibitor to ensure that written refund requests are received on or before the dates indicated by the policy.
