Non-competitive Display Cases

We invite all members of CFMS-affiliated societies to participate in the 2019 CFMS Annual Show & Convention in Pomona. If you have an exhibit you would like to display, please fill out this application form by February 25, 2019. All exhibits must be hobby-related. We encourage, but do not require, exhibits in line with our show theme of “California’s Natural Treasures” (for instance, California minerals or fossils, lapidary work using California rocks, an educational display on earthquakes, etc.). Each exhibitor will receive a show pass and one guest pass.

Lighting: Maximum lighting is 150 watts per 4-foot case. (No halogen lights, please!) Bring a 16-gauge,
3-prong grounded extension cord (6 foot length). Set-up will be Thursday, March 7, 2019, from noon until 9:00 pm. All exhibits must be set up on Thursday unless prior arrangements have been made with the Exhibits Chair. Exhibits must remain in place until show closing time at 4:00 pm on March 10, 2019. Neither the CFMS nor Pasadena Lapidary Society, Inc. assumes responsibility for loss or damage to the exhibitor’s property, material, or specimens. Exhibitors must provide their own insurance or assume the risk. Security will be provided throughout the show.
