This cost is included in your booth package except in the following cases: Oversize deliveries and deliveries received outside the posted times (page 22) will be charged at a rate of $55.00 per 100 lbs. (cwt).

All exhibitor spaces will be identified with a clean, simple booth sign that includes artist’s name, city, and booth number. As necessary, multiple signs will be available for large spaces to help attendees navigate the show floor.

Please remember that you will not have access to these containers during the show.

During set-up, coat racks will be set up in Artist storage and will be available to all artist and assistants. Badges must be shown.
