Each exhibitor will be provided with an official Exhibitor Services Manual. The Exhibitor Services Manual describes the type and arrangement of exhibit space and the standard equipment provided by Show Management for booth construction. All booth space must be arranged and constructed in accordance with the guidelines, provisions, and limitations contained in the Exhibitor Services Manual. In the sole opinion of Show Management, any exhibit that fails to conform to the Exhibitor Services Manual guidelines or the provisions set forth herein, such exhibit will be prohibited from functioning at any time during the exhibition
ISLAND BOOTHS: Island booths are any size booths exposed to aisles on all four sides.
Supplementary regulations governing such exhibits are the following.
A. The entire cubic content of the space may be used up to the maximum allowable height of 20’ including signage, hanging or stationary, banners, trusses and hanging lighting systems. Any hanging signage will be hung at 20’ from the floor to the top of the sign.
B. Canopies, including ceilings, umbrellas and canopy frames, can be either decorative or functional (such as to shade computer monitors from ambient light or for hanging products). The base of the canopy should not be lower than 7 feet from the floor within 5 feet of any aisle. Canopy supports should be no wider than 3 inches. This applies to any booth configuration that has a sight restriction. Fire and safety regulations in many facilities strictly govern the use of canopies, ceilings and other similar coverings. Check with the appropriate local agencies prior to determining specific exhibition rules.
C. Island Exhibitors should adhere to the following minimum guidelines when determining booth lighting.
- No lighting fixtures, lighting trusses or overhead lighting are allowed outside the boundaries of the exhibit space.
- Lighting should be directed to the inner confines of the booth space. Lighting must not project on to other exhibits or show aisles.
- Lighting that is potentially harmful, such as lasers or ultraviolet lighting, must comply with facility rules and be approved in writing by exhibition management.
- Lighting that spins, rotates, pulsates and other specialized lighting effects should be in good taste and not interfere with neighboring exhibitors or otherwise detract from the general atmosphere of the event.
