Each new exhibitor for us is a valued partner in a long-term relationship. The American Made Show will only review work that is designed and produced in the United States or Canada.

The American Made Show offers lifetime tenure to its exhibitors, as long as you continue to participate in the show each year and your work remains consistent. You will automatically receive a new contract each year; return it by the deadline and you will be guaranteed a booth.

Application Criteria

Applications reviews for the 2015 American Made Show begin May 1, 2014 and occur every 2 weeks thereafter as space allows. Applicants will be notified of their status by mail immediately following review. If accepted, contracts must be returned with deposit within 14 days to secure their participation. Booth selection for new exhibitors will begin on June 15, 2014, and booth confirmations will be mailed in July.

The American Made Show’s unique selection process for first-time exhibiting artists may seem a bit overwhelming. The information you provide helps us determine how much support and information you will need to be successful.

•You must design and supervise the work produced in your studio
•You are required to exhibit in person
•You must be a tax-paying resident of the U.S. or Canada
•You must supply high-quality digital images
