Vendor displays should be set up in convenient areas

In general, the participating organization will provide
2 to 8 six-foot tables, with 12 to 48 feet of tabletop
space. If there is enough space, additional tables may
be provided. Or, when space allows, many companies allow
vendors to use their own display equipment. In those
cases, the companies simply designate the measurements
of the space allotted and the vendors set up within
those parameters. Arrangements can also be made for
Kiosk Connections to provide display tables.back

and Departure procedures?
We work with each organization to document your procedures

communicates your specific product restrictions to vendors.back

Specialty Retail Vendors are entrepreneurs who operate
