Important Floor Plan Information

A few things to consider when reviewing the area of your booth requests:

  • Entrances will open at noon on Saturday and at 7 a.m. Sunday through Wednesday for poster presenter setup only. Poster sessions are open for all attendees at 1 p.m. on Saturday and 8 a.m. Sunday through Wednesday.
  • Assignments are not made until November 13–15 and are based on priority points, not when the application is received.
  • See below key for layout of the floor plan. Unfortunately, this must be followed as we have a very tight move-out schedule. If you will not be able to move out of the certain areas by the time frame, please do not request to be in these areas.

 Purple Area Island booths are not permitted in this area, only 10 x 10 booths. You will need to be
completely finished with packing, labeling, and ready to ship out by 11 p.m., Wednesday, November 7.
Empties will start arriving to booths at 6 p.m. 
 Green Area You will need to be completely finished with packing, labeling, and ready to ship out by 2 p.m.,

 Orange Area All booths permitted in this area. Empties will start arriving to booths between 8–10 p.m. You will
need to be completely finished with packing, labeling, and ready to ship out by 4 p.m., Thursday, November 8.
Empties may take a little long in this area as the purple and green areas will need to receive empties first.
