How does it work?

    • To get on the waiting list, please email the NILE Office at shelby@thenile.org
    • All communication will be done via email, so be prepared to provide us with the most frequently checked email address
    • As entries scratch and pen space opens up we fill the space with first exhibitor on the waiting list, and continue to do so until all spaces are filled.
    • Once the email is sent to the exhibitor, they will have three (3) days to respond with either a "yes, here is my entry form" or "no, I don't plan to attend"
    • If there is no response, we will roll onto the next exhibitor in line.
    • We will continue until all spaces are filled or all exhibitors are removed from the list.
