Wednesday, May 23- 9:00am – 4:00pm

Thursday, May 24 – 9:00am – 1:30pm

Below is a description of what will be included in the space:

  • One high top table with two barstool type chairs (option to exchange for a 6 foot table and two lower chairs).
  • Printed graphics (created by the company or country) on the back panel fabric wall (measurements for graphics are 72” w x 36” h). At the top left hand side of each back panel, each country or company’s country will be represented with their respective flags printed on the panel. It will be our goal to try and keep countries and companies from the same country next to each other.
