Show Management

Vancouver Convention Centre



Each in-line booth is provided with 8′ tall black back drape and 3′ tall black side drape. Island booths will not be draped unless otherwise requested. Black aisle carpet will run throughout the show floor, exclusive of booth spaces.

Booth Guidelines

Displays must not protrude beyond the measured booth dimensions or obstruct a clear view of the neighbouring booths, and may not be taller than 8 ft. in height except in specified areas. Exhibitors may extend the height of their display up to 12’ in height if:

1 / graphic/signs are limited to company name/logo
2 / exhibit is a professionally constructed display and does not present a safety hazard
3 / all sides of the additional height are finished and the back side does not include any company name/product (or anything that would interfere with a neighboring exhibit)
4 / no product is displayed above 9’
5 / detailed photos and/or plans are submitted to show management for review and approval. Submit here.

No Exhibitor shall permit the exposure of any unfinished surface to neighbouring booths. If the Exhibitor fails to correct the unfinished part, Lift & Co. will have the right to finish such outside partitions at the exhibitor’s expense.

Booth Approval

A final rendering of your booth must be submitted to show management for approval no later than Monday, December 3, 2018 if:

1 / your booth is 200 ft. sq. or more
2 / your in-line booth is requesting a maximum height of more than 8′ (12′ maximum)

Submit here.

Visibility and Sight Lines

All exhibitors must maintain “reasonable sight lines” from the aisle line, regardless of the size of the exhibit.

Consider sight lines as a major factor when designing your booth.

Do not block or obstruct the clear view, visibility and accessibility of other booth spaces.

Lift & Co. reserves the right to regulate “reasonable sight lines”, determine the eligibility of a booth floorplan, and retains the right to restrict or prohibit a booth floorplan if it is found to be in violation of reasonable sight lines.

Wall Height

In-line Booth

An in-line booth has adjoining booths on one, two or three sides.
Back walls: maximum height permitted is 8’ (exceptions above)
Side walls: maximum height permitted is 8’

– Side walls must be set back at least 5’ from the aisle line
– Extending back 5’ from the aisle line, the maximum height for side walls is 4’

Island Booth

An island is a booth with aisles on all for sides

Perimeter walls: a wall of solid construction that runs along the perimeter of the booth. Maximum height permitted is 4’
All other walls: maximum height permitted is 16’

– Walls of solid construction and 16’ in height, should be located in the centre of the exhibit space to take into account “reasonable sight lines”
– Walls that are not of solid construction (plexi or transparent material) and are non-continuous (not more than 4’ wide), are acceptable if they do not interfere with “reasonable sight lines” of surrounding exhibitors
