Exhibitor FAQs

List requests and other solicitations.

The NTOA does not provide its list to anyone or outside companies.  Any calls you get offering lists, rooms, etc. are not authorized by the NTOA. You purchase these services at your own risk. We try to prevent this as best we can.

Can I sell products?

Selling products at the trade show is done on your company’s accord. The NTOA will not take responsibility for any repercussions that may occur. You are responsible for any fees, taxes or fines that the city, county or state may impose on you.

How do I register for the hotel(s)?
