Exhibitor Services

Exhibit space packages

Please review the overview of exhibit space packages for information unique to your booth type, including provided furnishings and set-up restrictions, especially if you have a no drape full booth (new in 2019).

Exhibit Space Packages

Each exhibit space package includes Conference registration for one person, and all registered exhibitors will receive attendee contact information for targeted pre-Conference marketing, including presenter profiles with detailed season, budget, and facility information.

Provided furnishings

  • Full carpeting in exhibit spaces and aisles
  • Display table(s) with table coverings and drapery
  • Wastebasket
  • Standard organization name signage

Set-up restrictions

  • Display materials must remain and conversations must occur within the interior of the exhibit space.
  • Items in the front half of the exhibit space must be no higher from 4’ from the floor. Taller items must be placed in the back half of the drape, including items placed on tables.

Potential additional expenses (not included)

These optional services must be purchased separately using the forms in the Exhibitor Services Kit:

  • Electricity
  • Hardline Internet connection
  • Shipping (more info coming soon)
  • Custom or additional furniture

Wi-Fi access

Full registration includes access to “light business use” Wi-Fi in every Conference location at the Minneapolis Convention Center, including the exhibit hall. This means no streaming, just the ability for light Internet browsing and email.

Arts Midwest is currently seeking a sponsor to boost the number of available Wi-Fi connecitons. Learn more.

Exhibitor services kit

The Conference decorator, Brede Exposition Services, has sent each exhibitor’s primary registrant an electronic services kit with forms so you can purchase electricity, internet, additional furniture, etc.
