Frequently Asked Questions

  • Once you have submitted your application, RTIA management will be in touch within 5 days. If you haven’t heard from us within that timeframe, please connect with Briana directly via email or phone – | 714.319.3385.

  • Once accepted, 2024 RTIA Show exhibitors will be sent next steps which will include the first deposit invoice, the space agreement and request for marketing materials (work example images, bio, artist statement, etc.).

  • If your application is not accepted due to space limitations, you will be presented with alternative space options. If your application is not accepted for other reasons, there may be opportunity to exhibit within another featured showcase of the RTIA Show and depending on your location, these options will be presented to you as they are available.

  • Artists living and working in the greater Reno Tahoe region that do not require a large exhibition space are encouraged to apply within the Heart of Reno showcase. All other independent artists looking for wall space, with the exception of the First Nations applicants, should apply as ‘Galleries & Studios.’ Space only options do not include walls. Exhibitors are welcome to reserve both booth and space only options and can customize as needed once at least one application is submitted.

  • Applications are ‘first come, first serve’ and based on availability. Each application will move to ‘waitlist only’ once its available space has been allocated.

  • All booths need to be represented during the open hours of the show. RTIA staff allow for 20-minute breaks upon request, but exhibitors are responsible for being physically present to interface with buyers and enthusiasts throughout the event.

  • RTIA offers an on-site point of sales if needed. This service is complimentary aside from the 4% processing fee per transaction. When notified via call or text, RTIA Staff will meet exhibitors at their booth to conduct the sale. Payouts (via choice of Venmo, Zelle or check) take place within 3-5 days post show.

  • RTIA has a room block with neighboring Atlantis Resort Spa Casino, connected to the Reno-Sparks Convention Center by skybridge. All hospitality and travel details will be available on the RTIA ‘Visit’ webpage in April or by request before then.
