Exhibitor Center

Becoming an exhibitor is simple:

Find a booth you like from the list of available spaces below.  The floor plan is also included so you can see where the spaces are located in relation to the entry doors, etc.  Please note that each of the main exhibit halls, Hall E and Hall D, have their own lobbies and entrances located on the west (right) side of the halls.  Entry numbers are fairly evenly split between the two halls.

Then scroll down to see the booth prices and find one that fits your needs.  Further down on the page, we’ve included a list of Exhibitors and the Exhibitor Information which will have all the detailed information you’ll need as an exhibitor.  It’s pretty much a one-stop information hub.

 

  • 10×10 spaces include 8’ back & 3’ side drape. Bulk space is not draped.
  • Complimentary booth sign with company name & booth number.
  •  Free Wi-Fi service.
  • Free Parking for Exhibitors!
  • Unlimited Name Badges at no additional cost.
  • Free listing of company information and booth location in the annual Show Program that
    is produced & distributed by Capital Press to over 35,000 buyers prior to the show dates.
  • Exhibitor Meeting where you can give us your input about the show.
  • Exhibitor Lounge with complimentary coffee and donuts provided each morning.
  • Forklift service available for both move-in & move-out at no extra cost.
  • Easy to use, comprehensive Show Order Forms located on our website.
  • Comprehensive marketing & promotional campaign using print and a variety of digital and social media advertising.
  • Premium exhibit space in front of thousands of buyers from around the region.

Now you probably want to know how much that booth costs, right?  Here’s how things breakdown for booth fees (which we haven’t increased in 5 years!):

10’x10′ Standard Booth:  $570

Bulk Spaces (20’x20′ & up, priced per square foot):

400 – 599 sq. ft  ~~~~~  $2.11/sq. ft. 
600 -999 sq. ft.  ~~~~~  $1.79/sq. ft. 
1,000 – 1,999 sq. ft.  ~~  $1.55/sq. ft.
2,000 – 2,999 sq. ft. ~~  $1.40/sq. ft. 
3,000 – 3,999 sq. ft. ~~  $1.31/sq. ft.

5,000 and up  ~~~~~~  $1.14/sq. ft

*For corner spaces add an additional $50 to the per-square-foot price.*

All that’s left to do now is fill out the 2018 contract and submit it by fax, email, or regular mail.  Be sure to include booth selection options in case your first choice is no longer available.  You can also look over our 2018 Show Brochure for more information or catch up on the latest by reviewing the Exhibitor Newsletters below.

2019 SHOW SIGN-UP:

Included in your exhibitor packet will be a 2019 show contract. Sign and return the contract to the Show Office by 5 pm on Wednesday, January 31 to reserve your current booth(s). If you do not return your contract, your booth(s) will be shown as available during the Priority Sign-Up(see below). If you are interested in changing booth(s), it is recommended that you return the contract to reserve your current booth(s), then make any changes during the Priority Sign-Up; this way your current booth(s) are not available to other exhibitors until you are sure of any changes.

Booth sign-up is based on priority: each exhibitor is placed into a priority group based on their first contiguous exhibition year. These groups are reflected on the Priority List, which will be posted in the Show Office (Room D101) and the Exhibitor Lounge (Room E101). On Thursday, February 1, Priority Sign-Up for the 2019 show will begin at 1 pm in the Show Office. Each exhibitor will have a chance to make booth changes when their priority group is called.
