Booth	Construction	Guidelines

Space	dimensions	shown	on	the	floor	plan	are	from	center	line	of	booth		
equipment	such	as	side	rails	and/or	back	drape.	Exhibit	structures	must	be	
constructed	to	allow	sufficient	space	and	structural	tolerance	on	each	side		
for	this	equipment	and	for	utility	service	at	rear	of	booth.

Definition:	One	or	more	standard	units	in	a	straight	line.	                                                       5'
Depth:	All	display	fixtures	over	4	feet	in	height	and	placed	within	10	lineal	                              5'
feet	of	an	adjoining	exhibit,	must	be	confined	to	that	area	of	Exhibitor’s	
space	which	is	within	5	feet	of	the	back	line.
Intent:	Exhibitor	is	entitled	to	a	reasonable	sightline	from	the	aisle	regard-
less	of	the	size	of	his	or	her	exhibit.	Exhibitor	with	larger	space	(30	lineal	
feet	or	more)	should	also	be	able	to	effectively	use	as	much	of	the	total	floor	
space	as	possible	as	long	as	they	do	not	interfere	with	the	rights	of	others.	
The	limitation	on	display	fixtures	over	4	feet	and	within	10	lineal	feet	of	a	
neighboring	exhibit	is	intended	to	accomplish	both	of	these	aims.                  RIGHT

Height:	All	standard	booths	will	be	confined	to	a	maximum	height	of		
8	feet.	If	display	is	over	4	feet	high,	it	is	to	be	confined	to	an	area	within		
5	feet	of	the	back	line.
Intent:	Any	portion	of	an	exhibit	extending	above	the	8	feet	of	high	draped	
booth	background	will	detract	from	the	overall	impact	of	the	exhibit	di-
rectly	behind	that	booth	regardless	of	how	the	rear	of	the	offending	exhibit	
is	finished.                                                                       WRONG

Peninsula Booth
Definition:	Two	or	more	booths	at	the	end	of	an	aisle.	
Height: Peninsula	booths may	not	exceed	the	back	wall	height	of	8	feet	in	
the	center	10	feet	and	4	feet	in	the	outer	5	feet.	
Intent:	Exhibitor	is	entitled	to	a	reasonable	sightline	from	the	aisles.	Please

Island and Large Machinery Booths
Definition:	Island	booths	are	a	collection	of	four	or	more	10	ft.	x	10	ft.	
booths	contracted	by	one	Exhibitor	with	360	degree	aisle	access.	Large		
Machinery	Areas	are	designed	for	the	use	of	Exhibitor	who	displays	a	piece		
of	machinery	that	would	be	unable	to	fit	into	a	standard	booth	space		
without	violating	the	booth	construction	guidelines.	
Height: Since	island	booths	and	Large	Machinery	Areas	are	by	design	
separated	by	the	width	of	an	aisle	from	all	neighboring	exhibits	with	the	
exception	of	split-lettered	areas,	the	8	foot	height	limitation	does	not	apply.	   PENINSULA BOOTH
Full	use	of	the	floor	space	is	permitted;	however,	any	back	walls	or	drapes	
set	along	the	booth	perimeter	may	not	be	higher	than	4	feet.	Split-lettered	
Large	Machinery	Areas	such	as	Area	E	must	also	adhere	to	the	perimeter	
Intent:	Island	booths	are	designed	to	allow	for	Exhibitor	to	enjoy	a	greater	
presence	at	the	show.	Large	Machinery	Areas	are	designed	for	exhibitors	
who	would	be	unable	to	display	his	or	her	product	in	a	standard	booth.	
Please	note	that	Large	Machinery	Areas	are	not	designed	to	be	used	as
