Booth Height and Sightline Regulations
While we encourage creative and innovative booth designs that will maximize your company’s exposure, everyone must comply with the following limitations for booths of various sizes:
Standard booths are typically in a row and consist of a 20×10 space with white pipe & drape, 8′ height backdrop & 3′ height on either side. Also included in your standard booth, a 6ft. table with white top cloth and white skirting and two white folding chairs. Your booth must maintain the 20×10 perimeter allotted- equipment may be removed if it impedes the aisle.
Premium booths (limited availability), are considered to be a 20×10 space with white pipe & drape, 8′ height backdrop & 3′ height on either side, with placement in high trafficked areas. Also included in your premium booth, a 6ft. table with white top cloth and white skirting and two white folding chairs. Your booth must maintain the 20×10 perimeter allotted- equipment may be removed if it impedes the aisle.
- If for any reason, you need to cancel your space(s) up to 30 days prior to the show, you will be entitled to a 50% refund.
- If for any reason, you need to cancel your space(s) within 30 days (1 month) prior to the show no refunds will be given.
Please be courteous to your surrounding booths. Sound levels and projected images from your equipment must remain inside the confines of your allocated space. If Show Management receives complaints that sound emanating from your exhibit space is too loud or if any images are projected into the aisle, on a wall, or into a neighboring booth, we reserve the right to ask that changes be made to minimize disturbance to adjacent exhibitors.
Although some exhibitors have used the same booth scheme for many years, we ask that you take a moment to make sure your booth(s) fits the guidelines listed above. If you have any questions regarding the Expo, policies, contractors, height restrictions, the location, size, layout or design of your booth, etc., please feel free to contact Frances@tcfstyleexpo.com. If you have any doubts or concerns, please send a diagram of your intended booth plan for review.
We are here to work with you and while there are exceptions to every rule, those exceptions can only be made by Show Management. We will be flexible when we can; however, our goal is to not have anyone’s booth compromised by another.
