Our convention provides an opportunity for Associate Members to showcase their business at our evening receptions on Monday and Tuesday. Applications are due October 20, 2023.
There are three types of showcasing, Evening, Video and Family Showcase.
- Evening Showcase is available to acts/entertainment such as bands, dance groups, family shows, magicians, etc. that can fit onto a stage to perform. The showcase will be limited to 15 minutes. There will be specific times set-up preceding performance time and 5 minutes to tear down following performance. Acts must adhere to this scheduling.
- Video Showcase is available to acts/entertainment that is too large for the stage such as animal acts, motorsports, hypnotist, or variety acts. Videos shown at the showcase are limited to 3 minutes in length and should be submitted in DVD format for view.
-Family Showcase is available to acts that cannot typically showcase in our evening showcase due to the room restrictions are able to submit an application to showcase in the Grand Ballroom instead. Each act will go through the same application process as the other showcases, however your act will be limited to twelve minutes of performance time with a short time to set up and tear down between acts. A member from the Showcase Committee will act as the emcee. We will be working with the hotel and our Associate Members to provide appropriate sound equipment for the type of acts that submit.
Only established booking agencies or individual acts that are in good standing with Wisconsin Association of Fairs (WAF) are eligible for showcasing. A member in good standing is considered an Associate who has paid membership through the two fair conventions prior to the year they wish to showcase. Agency or act must have Association dues paid in full for year in which it showcases. Evening and Family Showcase acts will be showcased only once within a three year time period (two years in between each showcase opportunity.) Video Showcase acts may be submitted annually.
