This year ALL media trade tickets will be date specific, which will require you to select how many tickets you want for each day indicated below. This change is due to anticipated capacity limitations at the festival to allow for social distancing and to follow CDC, state and county guidelines as they pertain to COVID-19.
Please view the 2020 Trade Letter and the Trade Agreement that is applicable to your business.
Return the Ticket form that is part of the Trade Letter AND the Agreement via email to firstname.lastname@example.org and include 2020 Media Trade in the subject line.
All 2020 Trade Agreements are due by Friday, August 21, 2020.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact TRF Marketing Manager Marlena Solomon at email@example.com.
