What does it cost to exhibit?

Find out by answering the following questions.


Question #1: How much space do you need?

We sell exhibit space in increments of 10’ x 10’ booths. If you need more than a 10'x10' space, simply purchase multiple booths. For example:

  • 2 booths for a 10’x20’ space
  • 3 booths for a 10'x30' space
  • 4 booths for a 10’x40’ space
  • 4 booths for a 20’x20’ space
  • 6 booths for a 20'x30' space
  • etc.

FYI

When you purchase multiple booths, we will always place them together with no pipe and drape between them unless you request otherwise.

To qualify as a Member and receive discounted booth pricing, an Exhibitor must be in good standing - i.e., not suspended for non-payment - in at least one of the official organization databases listed below ON MARCH 1, 2018. If not, then the Exhibitor will not qualify as a Member and will need to pay the Non-Member booth price.

Anyone who does not fall under one of the categories listed to the left.

Booth Pricing Examples

Example A:

You qualify as a Member and want to request a 20'x20' end cap space on the 100 or 200 aisle such as 131/133/230/232 or 171/173/270/272.

  • Member price for a 10'x10' Regular booth: $550
  • 20'x20' space = 4 10'x10' booths
  • A 20'x20' end cap consists of 2 Premium Booths ($150 more per booth) + 2 Regular Booths

Therefore, the price would be $2,500. The math: [2 booths x ($550 Member price + $150 Premium Upgrade)] + [2 booths x $550 Member price]

Example B:

You do not qualify as a Member and want to request a 20'x30' space on the 600 aisle in the high numbers such as 569/571/573/670/672/674.

  • Non-Member price for a 10'x10' Regular booth: $925
  • 20'x30' space = 6 10'x10' booths
  • A 20'x30' space will require an end cap, which consists of 2 Premium Booths. Also, all of the booths in the high 600s are Premiums.

Therefore, the price would be $6,150. The math: [4 booths x ($925 Non-Member price + $150 Premium Upgrade)] + [2 booths x $925 Non-Member price]
