BLADE Show Exhibitor Resources
Thank you for your interest in the BLADE Show.
We are now accepting 2018 contracts. Please note that 2017 exhibitors have until October to renew their contracts. New exhibitors will be put on a waiting list and will be notified when their contracts are accepted, so please be patient while we coordinate everything until then.
Frequently asked Exhibitor questions:
How do I exhibit at BLADE show?
New exhibitors will be assigned space on a first come, first served basis. We will reach out to you to tell you where you have been assigned. This process takes some time as there are over 800 exhibitors, many new exhibitors will be assigned space in January 2018.
Thank you for your patience, and we look forward to seeing you in Atlanta!

EventSphere will never call you directly to book a reservation. The only reason EventSphere would call you are: If you called and left a message wanting a returned call, if there is a problem with an existing reservation, or if someone from BLADE Show management requested that EventSphere contact you. For example, “Sarah, with BLADE Show passed along your info…”

The BLADE Show provides a forum for members of the knife community to gather and focus on knives. Designers, makers and manufacturers can showcase their efforts. Consumers, collectors and users can meet firsthand with those on the supply side and conduct hands-on comparison and evaluation of much of what comprises the knife. The protection of intellectual property, including trademarks and trade dress, is critical to preserving a dynamic and innovative knife industry. The BLADE Show is, accordingly, committed to an anti-piracy policy. Exhibitors who are found to be offering counterfeit or "pirated" knives may be subject to any or all of the following: 1. Removal by law enforcement of items proven to be counterfeit or pirated. 2. Legal action by the affected parties, including removal from the Show by law enforcement. 3. Banned from exhibiting at future BLADE shows. The BLADE Show will work with law enforcement, private anti-piracy consultants retained by various exhibitors and all involved to arrive at the most equitable solution to issues involving counterfeit and pirated knives. All exhibitors are encouraged to exercise care to avoid counterfeit and pirated knives. Know the source and integrity of the knives you display.
