Exhibitor Check-In: Wristbands for ALL Exhibitors and Attendees
You and your guests don’t need to pre-register. All you’ll need is your business card, and you can exchange it for an exhibitor’s wristband when you arrive.
Booth Design, Accessories, and Information
Booth location and numbers are based on your registration date and will be assigned when you arrive.
Booths are 64 square feet (8’ deep X 8’ wide) and include “rod-and-drape” construction in the back and on the sides. The backdrop is 8′ tall and the sides are 3′ tall. You may hang lightweight signs or banners from the rod at the back of the booth.
The booth includes a 6′ x 2′ skirted table covered with a white plastic tablecloth, two chairs, a wastebasket, and a white paper sign with your company name. (You can view pictures of typical booth setups here.) To comply with fire regulations, nothing may be placed in, or extend into, the aisles.
Please bring any required fasteners or other hardware. If you need additional accessories (e.g. tables, chairs, lighting, linens, etc.), please contact John Shonnard at John.Shonnard@Freemanco.com or (775) 355-4600.
