The nation’s 59 state and territorial foresters direct over 26,000 employees and more than $3 billion in funding annually. Our members make purchasing, partnering, and product decisions every day, including at the National Association of State Foresters (NASF) Annual Meeting.

The 2021 NASF Annual Meeting — to be held September 7-10, 2021 — promises to be an outstanding forum on national forestry issues. This annual meeting will be held in-person and online. It is expected to attract upwards of 200 forestry leaders and provide ample opportunity for speakers, vendors, forestry leaders, and industry representatives to interact.

To become a meeting exhibitor or sponsor, please make your commitment by July 22, 2021. Exhibitor and sponsorship inquiries should be directed to NASF Policy Director Robyn Whitney via email (rwhitney@stateforesters.org) or phone (202-624-5977).

Exhibitor Benefits

The fee to exhibit at this year’s annual meeting is $750 and includes one (1) complimentary in-person or virtual meeting registration. The exhibitor fee also includes a virtual “booth” where vendors can video chat with visitors, display promotional materials, and connect meeting attendees with additional resources. All exhibitors will be provided with a step-by-step tutorial for setting up virtual booths and a personalized guide for using the meeting’s virtual platform.

The virtual 2021 NASF Annual Meeting will be enabled with “gamification.” Gamification gives all meeting attendees the chance to earn points by visiting exhibitors’ virtual booths, watching exhibitors’ videos, or even chatting with an exhibitor online. The attendees with the highest point totals at the close of the meeting will receive a special prize.

Exhibitors are strongly encouraged to attend the meeting in person; however, no physical exhibitor space will be offered in Pittsburgh.

At the in-person meeting in Pittsburgh, the exhibitor fee guarantees each exhibitor the opportunity to include up to one flyer AND one swag bag item for inclusion in the conference registration materials. In-person meeting registration includes all provided meals during the meeting and offers admission to the meeting’s sessions, Awards Luncheon, Host State Dinner, Banquet, and Field Tour. For each additional exhibitor registering for the in-person meeting, an In-Person Exhibitor Staff Registration must be purchased for $300. Likewise, for each additional exhibitor registering for the in-person meeting, a Virtual Exhibitor Staff Registration must be purchased for $150.
