3. Can I share my booth with another company?
Subletting or reselling of exhibit space(s) is prohibited. The Exhibiting company on
record must be figured prominently in the exhibit space at all times. If the company on
record does not occupy and staff the exhibit space, they will lose priority renewal for
PDAC 2018 and going forward. Exhibitors found subletting or reselling their assigned
exhibit space(s) will lose priority renewal for PDAC 2018. Refer to Section 2 for more
4. Can I change the company name on my booth?
When PDAC receives a request to change the company name on record, additional documentation is required. Documentation must include at least 2 of the following: name change certificate, merger & acquisition legal documentation, press release and/or proof of at least 3 shared Directors/Managers.
Please be advised that PDAC Convention Management reviews name changes on a case-by-case basis.
When a company is in the process of merging or is being sold, PDAC will not complete a
booth name change until the merger/sale is complete. In the case of a sale, the purchasing company will retain priority renewal over the exhibit space.
When a company name is changed, the new company name on record will have priority renewal over the exhibit space. PDAC is unable to change the company name back or to any other company name within the management umbrella for future conventions.
5. What are PDAC 2017 show hours?

10:00 am - 5:00 pm
Monday, March 6
10:00 am - 5:00 pm
Tuesday, March 7
10:00 am - 5:00 pm
Wednesday, March 8
9:00 am - 12 noon
Exhibitors must mount and staff their booth by 9:00 am on Sunday, March 5. Exhibitors
who do not mount and staff their booth by show open will be considered a “no show”.
6. What is a “no show”?
Exhibitors who do not set up by 9:00 am on Sunday, March 5 will be treated as a "no
show". Empty booths are detrimental to Exhibitors and the show in general. To protect
the integrity of the Trade Show, Trade Show North and Investors Exchange, no shows
will lose priority renewal over the unused space. The booth will be resold to another
Exhibitor for PDAC 2017, and the new company will retain priority renewal over this
booth space for PDAC 2018. Regardless of whether the booth is resold for PDAC 2017,
the no show will need to apply as a New Exhibitor for PDAC 2018.
