There are special guidelines in place due to Covid-19.

  • If someone in the booth is handing out samples, they must wear gloves and a mask.
  • Encourage guests to use hand sanitizer before picking up a sample.
  • Samples should be displayed in the booth in a way that does not allow guests to touch other samples (ex: no bowls of candy– each item placed individually on display/table/tray).

The shows held at the Columbia Metropolitan Convention Center are held in the Exhibit Hall and carpet may or may not be provided.
Will there be helpers and/or carts available during setup?
Since we frequently have 120-150 exhibitors at the show, we are not able to provide helpers or carts for setup. Please bring you own workers and rolling carts to make your setup easier.
Can you guarantee that I will be in the booth space that I requested?

Booth spaces are assigned on a variety of criteria including the date we received your application and deposit, location of similar exhibitors, and availability of your request.
