2024 Floor Plan

The Fine Print


Friday 4-7pm - Exhibitor Set-Up
Saturday 10am-6pm - Exhibits Open
Sunday 10am-4pm - Exhibits Open
Sunday 4-6pm - Exhibitor Tear-Down


Set up is to be completed by 7pm on Friday. During this time the exhibit halls will be accessible by exhibitors only. Once you have completed your set-up, please be courteous and leave the exhibit hall to allow others to finish. If you are unable to complete your set up on Friday, special arrangements can be made for early Saturday morning prior to show open.


Exhibits must be in working order for the duration of the exhibit hours. This does not mean that exhibits must be occupied by a person, but that cases should be open and systems powered up for attendees to explore. Outside of exhibit hours, the doors to the exhibit halls will be locked. This also means that the room will be inaccessible until exhibits open the following day, so plan accordingly.


In past years, we have had exhibitors begin packing up early which starts a chain-reaction in the exhibit halls. Not only does this disrupt traffic flow, we feel is is not fair to the attendees who have paid admission. Please plan for tear down no earlier than 4pm on Sunday and plan any travel accordingly.


  • Exhibit tables are 72"x30" and will be covered with cloth.
  • All table locations have 2 chairs with space to sit behind and a pipe/drape backdrop.
  • Standard Booths are 10'x10' or 12'x8.5' and will have 2 covered tables and 2 chairs. Tables and chairs can be removed during setup if needed.
  • Deluxe Booths are roughly 15'x15' and have the same amenities as standard booths.
  • Power is provided by a single outlet at floor level, please bring your own power strips and extension cords.
