  • 10 foot booths are the norm. Several respondents walked the show only. For companies who have not exhibited at a particular show, we typically recommend they walk the show for the first year to assess fit. Even if walking only, targeted business opportunities can be had with pre-planning and scheduling meetings with key exhibitors for example.
