  • Space

Each table space for Home Based Exhibitors will consist of a six (6) foot wide by six (6) foot deep space.  Each Curriculum Exhibitor table space will consist of an eight (8) foot wide by six (6) foot deep space.

No exhibit is permitted to extend outside their designated area.


When set-up begins, often exhibitors have leased a certain amount of “frontage space” and wish to reorganize tables, etc. within those perimeters. Our desire is to see that the area you have leased is initially set up exactly the way you need it to be. You need to let us know how you want us to set up the table and skirts that we provide. Please make your decision now about how your space is to be organized, as there will be a $50 fee charged for any changes you request on-site. Please email your layout request to

Example 1: “We will not need the provided table or skirting, we bring our own.” In this case, we will have the area you have purchased available for you to bring your materials in, without skirting. If we need to add skirting, we will charge $50.00 for the change.

Example 2: If you do not advise us that you are bringing your own skirting, and ours must be removed, we will charge $50.00 for the change.

Example 3: “Please push our table back against the wall.” Volunteers will have to re-skirt table independently of other tables. We will charge $50.00 for the change.

In your design, please let us know if you have a stand that will go on top of your table and include its dimensions so we can try to make certain that neighboring exhibitors do not have their materials blocked from the public view.

We cannot guarantee that we will be able to accommodate your request, but will do our best to do so.


  • Assignment of Space

Assignment of space will be made by the Exhibitor Committee on a priority basis, determined by availability of space at the time of contract and payment receipt. CAPE-NM reserves the right to alter exhibitors’ locations as shown on the official floor plan if deemed advisable and in the best interests of the convention. Payment in full must accompany this contract.

All exhibitors must be invited by CAPE-NM. If you have received this contract from any other source, please contact CAPE-NM immediately. Only contracts issued directly from CAPE-NM are valid or will be considered.


Remember: All exhibits need to be acceptable to the general Christian homeschooling public.

Duplication of major product lines or curriculum publishers is discouraged. Individual book or product duplications will be permitted (i.e., two bookstores carrying some of the same titles). The decision as to what would constitute an unacceptable duplication will be made by the Exhibitor Committee. As a rule, the first exhibitor to send in a paid application will be accepted.


Exhibitors are discouraged from sharing space with any other company or organization or displaying materials for another company or organization without the written consent of the Exhibitor Committee. When requesting permission to share your space, the second exhibitor must also have been invited by CAPE-NM.


It is our policy to accept or reject exhibitors and advertising without comment.


  • Rules of Decorum

Exhibitors agree that no criticism will be made of the exhibitors, attendees, the conference, the facility or CAPE-NM except privately to the Exhibitor Committee or a CAPE-NM board member or on the provided evaluation forms.

Children of exhibitors ages 10 and under must be accompanied by an adult at all times. Children left wandering unsupervised throughout the facility will be returned to their parents with a verbal warning from the Exhibitor Committee, and if repeated the exhibitor will be asked to leave the conference.


Dress is to be suitable to the general Christian public with propriety and good taste honoring our Heavenly Father and fellow brethren.


No high-pressure sales tactics of any type will be tolerated. Any exhibitor exhibiting high-pressure sales tactics towards attendees will be asked to leave the conference.


Drawings for prizes are permitted; however, the drawings must occur before the end of the conference.  Please coordinate with the Exhibitor Committee as to how and when to make the announcement for your prizes. Any exhibitor harassment of attendees during the conference may lead to the discontinuation of prize drawings.
