The exhibit area is not carpeted: IT IS MANDATORY THAT ALL BOOTHS HAVE CARPET OR FLOORING

Flooring in your exhibit space is mandatory but not provided with exhibit space purchase. If you are not providing your own flooring for your booth, you must rent carpet. Show Management reserves the right to "force carpet" any exhibit area that is without flooring  by 4:00PM on Wednesday. Exhibitor is responsible for flooring cost. Booths must have back sides of displays covered when visible from an aisle (ie drape on back side of a pop-up structure in an island booth).

 End Cap/Peninsulas-

If you have an end cap or peninsula booth (at least 10x20 or larger booth facing the corner versus inline aisle) you must leave a 4' viewing area on each side of your booth in order to provide a site line for the booths directly behind you. Maximum width for a backdrop display is 12' wide in order to leave a 4' view on each side for the inline behind you. The booth will be set with a 3' low drape along the full 20' back of your booth in addition to a 10' section of 8' high drape in the center. Note these unique Display Guidelines for Commodity Classic.
