If you need more than the number of badges allotted to your booth, then please fill out the Extra Exhibitor Badge Order Form before January 2, 2023 and we will have them ready for you at check in.

DO NOT LEAVE YOUR BADGES IN YOUR BOOTH as you need them to gain access to the show floor. Replacement badges are $10 each if lost, left at home, left in booth, a dog ate them etc.

The categories for the booth awards are listed below, accompanied by the criteria our panel of judges look for when selecting the winning booth and company. We value all of the hard work our exhibitors put in to create their displays and design their spaces and award those who go above and beyond to put their best foot forward.
