Registration for the 2021 Colorado Music Educators’ Association Clinic/Conference January 27-31, 2021
Thank you for your interest in exhibiting at the Colorado Music Educators’ Association Clinic/Conference in 2021. Here is some important information for you to know.
General Exhibit Guidelines
CMEA does not use booths as is normal at other conventions. We use tables, which are three foot by six foot and the cost is $220 per table/space. Each exhibit space is allocated an 8’ x 8’ footprint (64 Sq Ft) to be used as you determine. If you do not need a table the cost of the space will be $200. If you need a table you must use the one provided by the hotel.
With your booth registration all exhibitors will receive 3 name badges for the first space and one additional badge for each additional space. College and University exhibitors refer to a separate policy noted below. Additional badges may be purchased for $75 each and not to exceed a total of three additional badges. All badges must have a name and title associated with the badge. Badges cannot simply state “faculty or staff”. This is true for non-profit booths as well as general exhibitors.
College and University Badge Allocation ***NEW FOR 2021***
Exhibitor badges are intended to provide access to the exhibit hall for exhibitors who spend the majority of their convention at the exhibit booth. Students and staff who rotate shifts only spending a small portion of time at the exhibit booth will need to register for the conference through the established method. A total of FOUR College and University badges will be allocated to each exhibiting school following the formula below. Any names submitted without the attached criteria will not be prepared or issued. Should one or more of the names change from those submitted on the registration form, an onsite badge will be issued and the original name requested will be voided.
- School of Music Professor or Teacher – 1 Badge
- School of Music Administrator – 1 Badge
- School Admission Staff – 1 Badge
- School of Music Graduate Student or Support Staff – 1 Badge
CMEA offers Exhibitor Showcases that are a 50-minute session, featuring your organization, business, or product. This is a great opportunity to promote and bring focus to new material you wish to sell on site as long as you are exhibiting at the conference. If you are interested in an Exhibitor Showcase the cost is $100 per session. When you complete the on-line Exhibitor or Non-Profit Registration Form, you will have the option to choose how many Showcases you would like to purchase. The deadline for the Exhibitor Showcase is August 1, 2020 so these can be secured in the conference schedule. CMEA provides a presentation room, a projector cart, a projector, and a screen. No other audio-visual equipment, including Internet connection is provided.
BOOTH BLOCKS ***NEW FOR 2021***
With the utilization of the new Broadmoor Exhibit Hall, we are able to offer Booth Blocks for the exhibits that typically require more space than the rows can provide. These blocks will be separated from the isles and provide you with a 360 degree access to your presentation. A minimum of 6 spaces will be required to qualify for a Block. Anyone registering for 6 or more spaces will be contacted by the Exhibit Chair in August to see if they would like a Booth Block.

The Colorado Music Educators Association Conference
Normal attendance at the CMEA Conference is approximately 1500 educators with over 1500 performers and guests. Educators come from K-16 education with emphasis in general, vocal and instrumental music education and teacher education. The Clinic/Conference is held at The Broadmoor Hotel in Colorado Springs.
