National Stationery Show, featuring #fresh and The Supply Side



We appreciate your interest in exhibiting in the 2016 National Stationery Show. This year NSS celebrates its 70th edition! Applications are reviewed daily and booths are assigned on a rolling basis. We encourage you to apply as soon as you are ready, as booth space sells out quickly.

Booth assignments are made on a first-come, first-served basis. We will make every effort to accommodate your preferred booth size; we do advise, however, that you specify at least 2 preferences. When a booth has been assigned, we will email you a contract outlining your location, exhibit fees and terms, as well as include a floorplan and other key information. Exhibit space is $31.90/square foot. Corners carry a premium fee $450/corner, except in The Supply Side where corners are charged at $250/corner.


#fresh is a juried section of the NSS that features trending, emerging businesses of 0-5 years in stationery and lifestyle gifts.  Now in its 3rd year, #fresh features approximately 100 companies. 

Criteria for consideration:
  1. Product must be original, creative and authentic, with an emphasis on design and packaging (as perceived by the selection committee).
  2. Must be able to supply a booth photo from a previous exhibition, or barring that, a rendering of your NSS exhibit display.
  3. Company can only have been in business a maximum of five years.
  4. Company cannot have exhibited in the NSS for more than four years.

To apply for #fresh, indicate your interest on the NSS Exhibitor Application.
