2024 BSF Convention Exhibitors Information
Awards to be Handed Out:
We have made some changes to the Convention Exhibit in the form of new awards. The following is a list of all awards to be handed out:
Exhibitor Submission Overview
If you’d like to submit trees for the 2024 Bonsai Societies of Florida Convention Exhibit, here is your chance. We have about 35-40 spots, depending on the size of trees (or shohin displays). Read the rules below, take pictures and complete submission via email (email@example.com) by the due date and time listed below. The committee will review all submissions, choosing trees based on size, species, style, movement, and, most important, quality. You’ll be notified of our decision no later than April 30. We likely won’t have enough room for all entries, but we’re hoping for a quality representation from across the state. The email should include size (H x W xD), movement left or right and species (and if you’d like it considered for the Native award)
Exhibitors can register for all exhibit critiques ($30 per critique). While the critique time is limited, preference will be given to critiques of exhibitors’ trees, if requested. Kathrin Harris 2024 Exhibit Chair firstname.lastname@example.org

2024 Convention Club Exhibit
This year’s BSF Convention will hopefully have full representation from all BSF clubs and Study Groups through participation in the BSF Club/Study Group Tree Exhibit. Each club/study group should choose a tree that aligns with this year’s theme to represent your club/study group.
Your club will have until the first Sunday in May to submit the entry via email. We will not be using companion trees or scrolls. The tree will need to be at the banquet room for display by Friday morning (8 a.m.) on the convention weekend. The trees will be judged by the headliners as well as viewers, who will select a “People’s Choice”, with the best entries receiving an award.
If your club is interested in participating, please send an email firstname.lastname@example.org to provide information about the tree:
Species, Size (H x W x D), Stand or mat size (H x W x D) (not required, but please let us know if you need one), and a photograph of the tree.
2024 BSF Convention Volunteers Information
Call for Convention Volunteers!
Create connections during the BSF Convention by serving as a convention volunteer! Welcome new members, reconnect with colleagues, and network with other convention attendees, artists, and vendors, while giving back to BSF and contributing to the success of our annual convention. Volunteers are needed to help with Demos, Workshops, and assist with Conference Registration.
Demo / Workshop Volunteers
Volunteers are needed to ensure that all demo and workshop rooms are ready prior to their scheduled start times. Volunteers will assist with making sure that the rooms have the proper materials (trees), empty trash cans, and enough wire. Workshop volunteers will be responsible for announcing the order for picking trees.
Convention Registration Volunteers
Welcome convention attendees to Orlando, and the BSF Convention as a Convention Registration volunteer! Convention Registration volunteers assist with check-in, distribute materials and answer questions while providing excellent customer service to convention attendees.
Setup volunteers will assist on Wednesday afternoon and Thursday morning with the setup of both workshop rooms, the demo room, and the vendor area. There is also a need on Monday morning for breakdown.
