Rules and Regulations

Eligibility Requirements

Attendee / Exhibitor Eligibility
NAWLA members who are ‘Manufacturers’ or ‘Wholesalers’ of traditional wood products and/or engineered wood products and complementary building products are eligible to exhibit. Complimentary building products are defined as materials made of wood, wood fiber, agrifiber, cement-based products, including concrete, blocks, and cementious sidings, polymer products, or polymer-based composite products, as well as other products which incorporate wood as an integral component of their design. Also included in the category are coatings, fasteners, hangers, house wrap and ventilation products, roofing, insulation, gypsum, and any other products which the NAWLA Traders Market Committee may determine are appropriate to the interest of show attendees. Additionally, companies such as rail and truck transportation providers, reload operators, remanufacturers with a majority of revenues generated by processing wood on account, prefinishers and importers are also eligible to exhibit, as are certain Service Affiliates. (Importer is defined as satisfying all NAWLA wholesaler membership criteria, but with the majority of dollar sales generated by selling forest products sourced offshore.) No persons under 18 years of age will be admitted to the NAWLA Traders Market. Management shall have sold control over admission policies at all times.

Non-exhibiting Manufacturers and Service Providers are not eligible to attend. Only bona-fide Wholesalers, as defined by NAWLA Bylaws, are invited to attend as non-exhibiting registrants.
Management reserves the right to determine the eligibility of any company or individual to exhibit or attend with regard to the character and purpose of this event. Anything that could be perceived as a poorly construed comparison to products offered by any other show exhibitors would be in extremely bad taste and deemed inappropriate for show use by the NAWLA Traders Market Committee.
