Program Book

This book, which will be 6" x 9" in size, will be given to all attendees (approximately 3,500) and contains valuable information about the event, exhibits, and sessions. The program book will be handed out during on-site registration and will be made available online about a week prior to the conference. To reserve program advertising, please register online. 


All program ads should be submitted as a PDF, JPG, TIFF, or EPS file at a minimum resolution of 300dpi. They can be printed in black and white or grayscale. Any color ads submitted will be converted to grayscale. There is no bleed. Space reservation is due by August 1, 2018 and all artwork is due August 10, 2018. Advertising space is limited and first priority will be given to DMC Sponsors and Exhibitors. All advertising applicants will be contacted the first week of August to confirm ad placement.

Entrance Unit

For those interested in prime advertising at the conference, we encourage you to consider sponsoring an Entrance Unit (4 available). Each unit will include 4 large panels of a graphic of your choice (38.125" x 82") adjacent to the schedule for the conference. By sponsoring an entrance unit at the Bronze Level ($2,500), you will also get several other perks, including up to two exhibit booths, 1/2 page program book advertisement, and the opportunity to provide 3,500 bag stuffers. For more information, visit the Sponsor Information page.

Give-Aways (Bag Stuffers)

If you will be participating as an exhibitor at the conference, donate 3,500 of any give-away item, such as pens, notepads, magnets or informational brochures, to be included in the conference bags. This is a simple way to ensure something with your name on it goes home with every conference participant and may help drive participants to your booth while they are at the conference!

We ask that you limit the giveaway to tangible items such as pens, notepads, notebooks, catalogs, etc. Please note: No flyers/brochures will be accepted this year. There will be a special area for flyers and brochures. Contact Lauren at if you have any questions.

You can receive this special opportunity (until filled) by purchasing an Exhibitor Package or sponsoring the DMC. If you would like to provide something for the bags, please fill out the registration online form.

The address to mail give-away items is:
 Irving Convention Center
 attn: Dallas Ministry Conference - Give-Away Advertising
 500 W. Las Colinas Blvd.
 Irving, TX 75039

Please note: They must arrive on Monday, October 8 or Tuesday, October 9. Anything received before that time will not be accepted by the ICC and anything arriving after Oct. 9 will not arrive in time to be distributed into the bags. Anything received after that time will not arrive in time to be distributed into the bags. 

Resource Spotlight Opportunity

If you are a 2018 Dallas Ministry Conference exhibitor, consider presenting a Resource Spotlight! Companies who choose to participate will have a 30 minute time slot to present a teaching or parish resource they have available to attendees. Companies must simply provide a resource sample or an approved give-away to everyone who attends their Resource Spotlight (up to 100 people). This year, the Resource Spotlights will be given in a breakout session room during the break on Friday. This ensures that the attendees who come to your spotlight are truly interested in your service or product! Don't miss this opportunity to reach your prime audience!

Contact us if you are interested in this opportunity!
