Booth Size

Floor Area

Your floor area is 10′ x 10′ square, with 12′ aisles. The aisles have become more congested each year, so it is imperative that you maintain the 10’ front to rear and side to side dimensions of your booth. We will have the aisles clearly marked and ask that vendors cooperate in staying within their booth space for the weekend.

Side Walls

The side walls of your booth may not extend more that 4 feet from the back of the booth. If your booth walls will exceed this limit, you must obtain written permission in advance from the Expo team. Please submit your request as early as possible so we can accommodate you! We place booths with longer walls next to each other, to improve visibility for booths without walls. If you arrive at the Expo without advance permission for your wall length, you will be asked to remove them.

Location

If you have any questions about layout or your booth location, please contact the Expo team. If you have a desire to move, please indicate that you’d like to change, and where you’d like to be. We can let you know what’s available and see what we can do to place you where you’d like to be located for the weekend.
