Exhibit Hall / Reaching the General Assembly Audience
The General Assembly (GA) has been held every year since 1962, and attendance has grown steadily during this time. Our meeting is attended by adult and youth delegates and non-delegates from congregations, both clergy and laity. Average attendance over the past five years has been 3,500 registrants.
The Program is complex and very busy, with events starting about 7:00 every morning and concluding with social activities until 11:30 p.m. Over 450 events occur during the five-day Assembly.
The 2019 Exhibit Hall will be located in the Rhode Island Convention Center, centrally located in the heart of Providence, at 1 Sabin St, Providence, RI 02903. Google Map.

Displaying a Congregation or Organization Banner
GA begins with a grand parade of banners from hundreds of Unitarian Universalist (UU) congregations and organizations. Congregational banners are hung in the convention center after the Opening Celebration, to contribute to the ambiance of GA. Unitarian Universalist organizations often hang their banners in their display booths. Read more about banners.
Materials promoting GA events, position papers on business items, and any other leaflets may be handed out by individuals, but may not be left on tables in lobbies. Materials may not be distributed near the entrance to the General Session Hall or in a manner that impedes traffic. In the Exhibit Hall, all materials must be distributed within exhibit booths. No materials may be distributed inside the General Session Hall except official business papers authorized by the Planning Committee.
