  • Carpet or floor covering is REQUIRED for your booth, but is not included. You can rent carpet from Freeman, the trade show’s official service contractor, or bring your own.
  • Any furnishings (tables, chairs, etc.) can be ordered from Freeman, or you can bring your own.

More about drayage

Drayage fees vary in range depending on the trade show location and are based on the weight of an exhibitor’s booth structure and/or contents. Because it can be difficult to estimate/budget for drayage from year to year, it is included in your space fee. Most trade shows do not include this service in their booth space fee, and we offer it to you to help ensure a successful event. Please see drayage and shipping instructions (sections 15-16) of the terms and conditions for more information about drayage fees.
