ACVO's booths are considered 'table top'. Each booth space is smaller than a typically 10x10 space, to accommodate more vendors in smaller facilities. An exhibit booth is no wider than 8' and no deeper than 6' (encroachment is NOT allowed and those in violation will be asked to dismantle their displays)

Each booth includes:

  • Attendance for two exhibitors

  • 6' table, two chairs and a small trash can

  • Carpet, black table drape

  • Pipe and drape

  • One printed conference proceedings book

  • Daily vacuuming of booth can be ordered

Tables, pipe and drape, carpet and additional chairs do not need to be purchased. Vacuuming of the common areas in the hall is provided by the hotel at no additional fee to the vendor, vacumming of the booth can be ordered by our provider. *Pipe and drape is to be provided through a third party vendor and may vary some years.

  • Standard 8'x6' booth: $1,150
