The Lake Laberge Lions Yukon Trade Show organisers will designate your booth location, taking into consideration your preference.

TICKET DRAWS & ANNOUNCEMENTS - Free gift draws are quite popular, but optional. An exhibitor may hold them at their own discretion. A public address system will be designated for the purpose of live draws or winner announcements. Special announcements may be arranged through the Yukon Trade Show co-ordinator on site, but cannot be guaranteed unless booked in advance.

FOOD VENDORS - No food may be sold inside the building and anyone vending food from an outside location must ensure all applicable licences and regulations are issued and adhered to. Yukon Trade Show management has final say on any food products sold outside the building.

ADVERTISING - Yukon Trade Show posters will be displayed, local newspapers and radio station announcements will be used to promote the Yukon Trade Show by the Lake Laberge Lions Club prior to the Yukon Trade Show. Yukon Trade Show advertising/map directory will not be issued and exhibitors should make their own arrangements for personal media promotion. We will be working with the media to promote the Yukon Trade Show and hope to have full-page advertisements as in previous years.

You should keep this Exhibitor's Regulations and Procedures, as this is what governs the Yukon Trade Show.

Thank you for your participation.
