    All linear booths are 100 sq. ft. (10' x 10') unless otherwise noted on the floorplan. Booths have a back wall drape that is 8' high, with sidewall drapes that are 3' high. Total height of exhibits (including decorations) may not exceed 8' unless against a wall, which allows for 12' or prior approval from exhibit management. Display material for linear booths is restricted to a maximum height of 4' in the front 5' of the booth, and 8' in the rear 5' of the booth.

    Island Booth

  • Exhibitor Warning
    Third party companies who are not official YDC vendors, have been soliciting exhibitors for room reservations, lead retrieval units, list rentals, and other trade show products and services. These organizations may misrepresent themselves as YDC official vendors. Exhibitors may be contacted by fax, e-mail, or phone with offers for cut rate services.  Please visit YDC’s list of Official Vendors. Direct any questions to YDC Exhibits.
