Commercial Exhibitors


Thank you for your interest in applying to become an exhibitor at the 2017 Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo. We accept applications for new exhibitors between May 1 and Aug. 31 during each year for the following year’s event. All applications are reviewed and evaluated on their own merit, not on a first-come, first-served basis. The criteria are further described in the application itself. 

Please review the Commercial Exhibitor Handbook prior to submitting an application. The Handbook contains important information about the program and rules. 

Login Area

The login area is for contracted commercial exhibitors only. Applicants should view the Application section for information on applying. This system is disabled from May 1 - Sept. 1 in preparation for the upcoming Show.

Exhibitor Handbook

The Commercial Exhibitor Handbook contains Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo policies and procedures. This handbook has been developed to ensure the best Show possible for our visitors and exhibitors. It is the responsibility of each commercial exhibitor to read this information, know the rules, and ensure that their staff does the same.
