*Booth capacity is based on booth sizes of 8' x 10', and does not include space for concessions, concessions dining, staged areas, bar service or reception tables. Approximate price per booth will increase if number of booths is decreased. Electricity plug-ins for booths are not included above. Costs may vary based on any additional options that may be added. Set up days are 50% of the normal rental rates. Trade shows, fairs and exhibits will receive three hours of tear down in the pricing quoted above.
