“The focus at Noted is exclusively on greeting cards and the greeting card community, not booth ballyhoo,” says George White, president and COO, Up With Paper and GCA’s vice president and co-chair for Noted. “We’re leveling the playing field. We have four sizes of exhibit space to offer, but you won’t find any enormous exhibits, stuff hanging from the ceiling, or other distractions from the products.  There really is something for everyone in the greeting card business, and if you are in our industry, you need to be at Noted.”

“All-in” exhibit spaces start at $1,995.00 for GCA members for a 6′ x 3′ space. This package includes hard walls with shelving, table, chairs, plus move-in assistance, lunch, snacks and beverages for exhibitors each day, AND a complimentary ticket to the LOUIE Awards. Space is available for 6’ x 3’, 10’ x 10’, 10’ x 20’ or 20’ x 20’ displays. Exhibit space is still available at all of the price points listed above, subject to availability. For more details and full pricing, view the prospectus and exhibit application.

“Electric, lunch each day, and trade show survival essentials like donuts and water are all included. No cost surprises; just a supportive community of greeting card publishers, retailers, and designers.  One of our goals is bringing the humanity back to a trade show environment, and all attending Noted will feel it,” says White.

Online registration for attendees and accommodations will be available in February 2019.  For additional information, please contact
