Set-up
Exhibitors need to arrange to have their booths completely set during posted set-up hours. If exhibitors or exhibitor appointed contractors (EACs) are on the show floor by 5:00 PM on Saturday, July 13, they will be allowed to stay in the hall until they have completed their set-up.

Exhibitors will be allowed into the hall one hour prior to opening of exhibits for final touch-up and testing of equipment. No exhibit installation will be permitted on Sunday, July 14. Due to the size and complexity of the exhibit hall layout, NACUBO has reserved Sunday morning, July 14 for the service contractor to lay carpet, pull empties, vacuum and set for the 10:30 am opening. Any requests for exceptions to this due to emergency circumstances must be approved in writing by show management in advance. Please send these requests to gnehemiah@nacubo.org.

Exhibit Package
The Exhibit Package includes a 10' x 10' pipe and drape booth, one (1) complimentary full registration, three (3) expo hall only badges per each booth purchased, an ID sign, 24-hour security, listing in the conference program, listing on the Annual Meeting web site, listing on the Annual Meeting mobile app, and a list of pre-registered attendees in Excel format.  All exhibitors must follow the IAEE Guidelines for Display Rules and Regulations.

The exhibit hall is NOT carpeted. In order to maintain a professional environment and for your safety and the safety of our attendees, NACUBO requires that all booths be fully carpeted. Furniture and carpet can be either supplied by the exhibitor or ordered from the service contractor.
