2019 WSFA Trade Show

CALLING ALL VENDORS! 

The 2019 Women Stepping Forward for Agriculture conference will be held October 1-3, 2019 at the Gallatin County Fairgrounds in Bozeman, MT.

In 2018, we had over 100 women in attendance from across the state and outside the state. In 2019, we hope to grow the conference with even more attendees. The conference features a wide variety of speakers that are hand selected for their talent and content as it relates to agriculture and women. Additionally, a spotlight of the conference is the tradeshow, which is made up of retail and informational booths for the attendees to peruse.

This year’s tradeshow will have limited space and a lottery will be utilized to encourage a fair mix of vendors. Seven retail spaces and seven informational spaces, for a total of 15 indoor booth spaces, will be available at this year’s conference. Additionally, there will be two outdoor trailer vendor spaces available. All vendor booths are in the main conference room and you will be able to fully participate in the WSFA conference and benefits. 

LOTTERY DETAILS
