Trade Fair Vendor Information

It’s time again for the annual Alaska Dog Mushers Association International Sled Dog Symposium Trade Fair. You may have been vendors at past trade fairs, or you may be interested in acquiring space for the first time. We welcome each and every one of you.

Below is a link to the trade fair form, along with some miscellaneous information. Please return the form completely filled out, with your payment, to reserve your space. You can email it back to me, fax it, or send it via snail mail, to my PO Box. A discount applies to reservations received and paid for by September 15th. The current plan is to place vendors in the spaces they were in previously, unless you request otherwise. If you prefer to be near a particular vendor, please make a note of that on the form, and we’ll do our best to accommodate your request. However, location preference will go to returning vendors first.

If you have any questions, or suggestions, please give me a call, or send an email.

Contributing to this auction is a great way to help support our nonprofit organization while showcasing your products to an international audience. Proceeds from the auction help cover symposium costs and other expenses such as trail maintenance and the 66th running of the Open North American Championship.
