Maximum back-wall height is eight feet (8’) and is allowed only in the back 1/3 of the booth. Display materials should be arranged in such a manner so as not to obstruct sight lines of neighboring exhibitors.
Quad Space: Composed of four regular booths (20’x20’), a quad is exposed to aisles on four sides. Exhibitors may use the full cubic content of the space as there are no height restrictions. However, exhibitors must provide sufficient see-through areas so that they do not completely block the view of the adjacent exhibit.
Exhibit Displays: All exhibit displays, tables, racks or shelving should be designed and installed properly to support the materials being displayed on them. They should be erected in a manner that will withstand normal contact or vibration caused by neighboring exhibitors. This includes moderate wind effects that may occur when freight doors are open. All exhibit displays must be confined to the booth space and cannot extend out into the aisle(s).
Exhibit Lighting: No lighting, fixtures, lighting trusses or overhead lighting are allowed outside the boundaries of the exhibit space. All hanging light systems must be approved in advance. (Use online Rigging Form coming soon). Lighting should be directed to the inner confines of the booth space and should not project onto other exhibits or into the aisles. Lighting that is potentially harmful, such as lasers or ultraviolet lighting must be approved in advance. Lighting that spins, rotates, and pulsates and other specialized lighting effects should be in good taste and not interfere with other exhibitors or the general atmosphere of the event.
Exhibitor Check In & Loading Docks: All exhibitors' vehicles must proceed to loading docks and wait their turn. Do not park in unauthorized areas to unload your vehicle. Vehicles left unattended at the loading dock ramp that are NOT in the process of loading or unloading are subject to being towed at the expense of the owner.

Oversize Vehicles: Exhibitors must research authorized locations to park oversize vehicles. Parking for large vehicles/trailers is available on a first-come basis in the East Garage marshaling yard. Height restriction is 16’ 6’. As space is limited, any vehicle taking more than one space will be required to pay for each additional space. As space is limited, vehicles may be required to drop trailers and then park vehicles on upper levels.

Sidewalk/Exterior of Convention Center: At no time will any vehicle be allowed to park on the sidewalks in front of or around the Convention Center.
Sound/Music: In general, exhibitors may use sound equipment in their booths so long as the noise level does not disrupt the activities of neighboring exhibitors. Speakers and other sound devices should be positioned so as to direct sound into the booth rather than into the aisle.
Stickers, Tape, Helium Balloons, Confetti & Knives: The use or distribution of stickers, helium balloons, confetti, and knives is not permitted at the Convention Center. Tape is prohibited as it leaves behind a residue that can damage the surfaces.
Storage: Fire regulations prohibit storing products, literature, empty packing containers or materials behind the back drapes in the exhibit booth. Exhibitors may store a limited amount of supplies in booth area and under tables so long as these items are stored neatly and do not create a safety problem. See the Exhibit Hall Decorator for additional approved storage areas. No exhibit supplies or materials are to be stored or displayed outside the booth area.
Towers: A Tower is a freestanding exhibit component. The tower height limit is the same as the height restriction for the booth space being used (see Exhibit Booth Sizes above).
