Exhibitor Booth Details:

Each Booth is a 10’ x 10’ space which includes the following:

  • 8’ pipe & drape along the back wall
  • 3’ pipe & drape along the side walls (with the exception of corners and islands)
  • 1 x 8’ table with 2 Chairs
  • Booth ID sign
  • 4 exhibitor tickets

The  Corner Upgrade will ensure one side of your exhibit area is open to an aisle. The Island Upgrade will ensure there are no booths directly adjacent to your exhibit. A Corner Upgrade is not necessary when purchasing an Island Upgrade, but it does require the purchase of at least 4 Booths. Upgrade Costs are in addition to the cost of the Booths. Upgrades do not include any additional pipe and drape, tables, or chairs.

Exhibitor Table Details

Standard Tables are for Talent and Artists only and have a limit of one per person/company.

Each Standard Table is an 6’ table, in-line with other exhibitor tables. The table includes:

  • 1 x 6’ table with 2 chairs
  • Booth ID Sign
  • 2 exhibitor tickets

Electricity, WiFi, and other services must be contracted directly from the decorator or convention center, and will have additional costs. Closer to the event, after your application is accepted and we receive your deposit, you will receive an Exhibitor Kit with detailed information, guidelines, instructions, and rates for services.
