Dear Exhibitor:


The 2017 Texas Shrine Association will hold its Annual Convention June 14-17 in beautiful Waco, Texas.  The Shrine Marketplace will be located in Chisholm Hall at the Waco Convention Center which is conveniently located next to the headquarters hotel, the Hilton Hotel.  Almost all of the activities at the convention will be held in and around the Waco Convention Center in the historic downtown district.


It is our sincere hope that you will make plans now to obtain space to display and sell your merchandise.  For your convenience, I am enclosing an Exhibitor Contract which you should complete and return with your deposit check for the rental of booths as described in the contract agreement.  Assignments will be on first come, first serve basis.


Booth set up will begin on Wednesday, June 14 from 2:00-5:00 PM, with continued set up on Thursday, June 15 from 7:00-9:00 AM.  Tear down will be Saturday, June 17 immediately after the close of the Marketplace.


Located on the banks of the Brazos River deep in the Heart of Texas, Waco is home to the Masonic Grand Lodge of Texas and within a two to three hour drive for thousands of Shriners across Texas.  Due to our central location and the incredible growth of downtown Waco, we expect a great turn out this year and hope that you will make plans now to join us.


As Marketplace Chairman, I look forward to working with you.  Should you have any questions, please direct them to me at the address listed below.


See you in Waco!
