Vendors/Consultants Attendance Policy

A Note About TAG's Attendance Policy

TAG strongly values the contributions made by consultants and vendors at the annual conference and strives to maintain an appropriate balance of foundation staff to consultants/vendors by enforcing this policy. The majority of conference attendees represent large private and community foundations. Therefore, exhibitors are being given a unique opportunity to network with conference attendees who have specific responsibilities for deploying technology in foundations. To maintain a learning community that encourages an open exchange of knowledge and ideas, we ask that all participants refrain from soliciting funds or conducting business during the conference, except when you are in the Exhibit Hall on November 15 and 16, 2016.

Exhibitor Package Terms and Conditions

The conference will include a two-day Exhibit Hall, which will be held on Tuesday, November 15 and Wednesday, November 16, 10:30 am–5:00 pm. The conference officially opens Tuesday morning and the exhibit hours are scheduled during a time when most attendees are on-site.

A maximum of 16 relevant and appropriate consultants/vendors will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis through the conference online registration system at
