Exhibitor Registration

30,000 divers each year explore Dutch Springs attractions for training and fun!
Dutch Springs wants to help the dive industry reach these divers to share knowledge and experience through our Expo.  Focusing on dive manufacturer participation, we will have sites available as “booth spaces” throughout our facility for product exhibition and demonstration.

Exhibiting is easy and FREE!

Open to dive manufacturers and non-profits only, our event is free to participate in.  We just ask for a donation of at least one prize that will be drawn at the end of the event.  A covered area and picnic table will be provided by Dutch Springs.  Just bring your equipment, helpers and your display!  If needed, additional tables, chairs and booth equipment can be rented from Dutch Springs for the event.

How can exhibitors identify potential customers?

There is no cost to exhibit, however each participant is required to provide a door prize.  The door prize, and a raffle container, will remain at the booth for the entire weekend.  Each participant will get a certain number of raffle tickets to place in bins.  You will receive a list of attendees and their ticket number.  The more raffle tickets they put in your raffle bin, the more they want the raffle item, and the more likely they are a to purchase your product!

“In-Booth” Seminars

Each exhibitor will have the option of holding an “In-Booth” seminar.  We will provide a microphone and speaker for  use for 30 minutes to highlight and educate divers about your products!

In Water Demos!

What is the best benefit of exhibiting at the Expo at Dutch Springs vs at an Expo Facility?  Divers can demo your product live in the water at Dutch Springs!
Test diving new gear will allow your potential customers to experience and fall in love with your product!
