Prospectors’ Tent 2021 Participant Information

Apply for the Prospectors’ Tent at Roundup 2021.


Selection Process

The Roundup Prospectors’ Tent Chair will determine who participates and on which days. Criteria used in the selection process include the number and nature of the prospects, their novelty, and the quality and originality of the proposed display.  Only independent prospectors and small, independent prospecting teams need to apply.  (Larger groups and public companies are encouraged to participate in the Project Generators Hub or the Exhibit Hall.)  Selected prospectors will be formally confirmed to participate via letter in October 2020. Applications received after the deadline will be placed on a waiting list. All prospectors are welcome to apply and exhibit, though preference will be given to BC and Yukon based prospectors.


Prospectors will present on a one-day or two-day rotation (depending on demand and space available). Each confirmed prospector will be allocated one rolling pin-board, arm-lamp, one skirted and covered 6’ table, and two chairs. Power is available for laptops and other electronic devices. An internet connection can be purchased from the Vancouver Convention Centre.

Exhibitor Kit

The Exhibitor Kit will be available in the Fall.


There is no cost for the Prospectors’ Tent booth space. However, all confirmed Prospectors’ Tent participants will be required to purchase an individual AME membership and a Roundup Conference Exhibit Hall or Full Delegate pass in order to access the exhibit hall. Registration details will be available by Fall 2020. Prospectors who exhibit at Roundup 2021 will receive a $250 rebate cheque following the conference to help cover participation costs.
