booth options

Foyer Table Top Booth

Are your exhibit needs very simple? Is 10x10 too much space for you, more than you know what to do with? Do you just need a table to put out your collateral materials? Do you want a booth to promote your business but also want to take some time to attend sessions and not worry about manning your both the entire time (the only mandatory time to man the booth would be during the exhibitor reception)? If you answered yes to any of these questions, then our Foyer Table Top Booth, located in the foyer outside the main exhibit hall at the convention center, is perfect for you. There are a limited number of these special booths available, so don’t hesitate to reserve yours today! The following benefits are part of the Foyer Table Top Booth:


• One (1) Exhibitor Registration (does not include tickets to luncheons and evening events; those tickets can be purchased separately)
