Equipment on the Day of Fair*
Each organization will be provided one 6-foot table and tablecloth. We will not be able to provide special equipment such as TV monitors, slide projectors, or screens. If you request an electrical outlet for your display, please bring an extension cord.
*Those Non-Profit and Government organizations who register for the Share-A-Booth option will be provided with half of a booth/table and one chair. In selecting this option, you acknowledge that the space will be shared with another organization in order to make the fair more affordable for nonprofit and government agencies to attend.
Due to space limitations, and as a courtesy to your neighbor, we ask that you either set your display on or behind your 6-foot table. Displays will not be permitted on either side of your table --- creating wings or extensions. We will ask that any display which obstructs the view of others be removed. Thank you for your cooperation and understanding in this matter.
Your display must fit the following designated space:
Tabletop dimensions = 6' x 2'
Height restrictions for Tabletop Display = 5'
Height restrictions for Floor Display = 8'
**These requirements do not apply to Executive Circle Sponsors.
