Assignments of booths is finalized during March and many factors are used to effect a proper and fair booth arrangement. Not placing competitive booths close to each other is the most important consideration. The date that the booth space application is received, and the number of booths requested also play a role in arriving at the final exhibit hall layout.* Many of you have requested the same booth you had last year, and those requests are already recorded.
