Breakfasts, breaks and lunches will all take place in the
social commons area, conveniently located alongside the
vendor exhibit area. Every booth space is great but some
will get you front and center. We’ve created three distinct
vendor exhibit exposure opportunities, with varying levels
of visibility, from premium booth space to standard space,
so that you can choose the booth number and exposure
that’s right for you. Check out the exhibit space layout for
an overview of these opportunities. Again, booths will be
available on a first-come, first served basis.

Using the layout on the right, select your desired booth.
Premium booths are shown in red, intermediate in dark
blue and standard in light blue.

Booth space fees will be discounted for those who submit
payment early (before March 15, 2008) and to those who
choose to sponsor elements of the 2008 conference.
Details on sponsorship opportunities are included within
this package of information. Exhibitors who choose to also
sponsor a portion of the 2008 event should contact Dave
Ricks at 208.514.2450 or dricks@idpr.idaho.gov to take
advantage of special rates prior to submitting your
registration form and payment!
