prefaced by The EGB Symposium
Estrel Hotel and Convention Center, Berlin, Germany
The Holy Grail Guitar Show is an INVITATIONAL EVENT, a presentation of the best of what the world of professional contemporary guitar making has to offer, featuring a wide variety of guitar builders from around the world.
Important: Submitting this application or having already exhibited does not guarantee an exhibitor spot -- on the other hand it also does not mean that you won't be invited again!
In recent years there have been some misunderstandings about the invitation process, such as
‘if I don’t apply this year I will increase my chances of getting a spot next year’
-- or --
‘I’ve exhibited twice so I won’t be invited again’.
Both statements are wrong.
The Invitation Committee (made up of several board members of the EGB) will evaluate all applications carefully, aiming to offer the public a varied and interesting cross-section of today’s high-quality handmade guitar scene. By applying a rotational principle, every effort is made to ensure an fresh, attractive and appealing exhibit, while giving all qualifying guitar builders a fair shot at a chance to exhibit.
So, if you are interested in exhibiting make sure to submit this application before the deadline. And we ask that you read all information carefully and refer to our Q & A on the website or email us your questions.
The exhibitor fee is EUR 800 plus 19% VAT if applicable and includes among other things:
Invitees will receive more details with their invitation, but important basic principles are that:
Guitar shows are intense from the exhibitor point of view – usually there’s not much chance to catch up with colleagues without feeling you’re stealing those moments from your clients! The EGB Symposium on Thursday & Friday is the perfect forum for us, the luthiers, to connect, exchange ideas, learn from each other and enjoy each other’s company in a relaxed environment. The Symposium will present a rich program of workshops, lectures, intriguing discussions and more! More information about the program, schedule and fee for the Symposium will be published later, but please, mark it in your calendar! Please be aware that the EGB Symposium is not included in the exhibitor fee!
