Joint Expo Point System for Exhibitor Booth Selection


Exhibitors are assigned booths through a point system. The points are calculated based on a rolling total for the past five years. Booth assignments will be made once each month leading up to the show until all space is allocated. Booth space must be paid for in order to have your booth space assigned regardless of points earned.



What earns points?


  1. Number of times exhibiting in the past 5 years. Cumulative and 1 point per year
  2. Total number of booths purchased in the last 5 years (total points vary). Cumulative and 1 point per 10 x 10 booth space

Then, comparing each company based on the previous year. Each tied company will be compared based on participation in the expo (yes or no), and number of booths in that specific year. Review will continue going back up to five (5) years until priority is assigned.
