Booth Deposits and Multi Booth Companies
Applications received by their Priority Group deadline with deposits will be assigned as requested. If a deposit is not received within 10 business days of booth selection, the booth reservation will be canceled on the 11th business day without further notice to the exhibiting company, and the reserved booth will be released back into inventory for selection. It is the responsibility of the exhibitor to ensure that their deposit is received in the stated time frame.
Companies wishing to group multiple booths together from various affiliated companies may do so based on space availability. While other special requests regarding booth selection and placement may be considered, all special requests may be subject to additional administrative fees.
