Barter Renewals

Once accepted as a Media Partner, MACE Media Group always assumes a renewal of the agreement from show year to show year. Agreement Renewals will be distributed to all partners once organized. If you have not received your renewal package, contact us. Renewing Media Partners are asked to begin running show advertising upon receipt of the Creative Media Pack without any further notice from the Show. MACE Media Group will match barters proposed of any value, we are always happy to discuss increasing or changing the overall barter value with partners at any time. The new inventory list for barters will be made available soon.
