This is a very popular show with many requests for space. Keep in mind that spaces for nonprofit groups are
subsidized by the show. Priority for these spaces is by date of receipt of reservation which includes payment.
Show management reserves the right to refuse at its discretion exhibition space to any organization. If you
conduct your booth activities in a manner to impede traffic flow; promote your booth in any area other than your
assigned space; cause a disturbance; or promote an organization, yours or other, whose position or mission is
contrary to the goals and philosophy of the sport of pure bred dogs, you will be asked to vacate your booth and
leave the premises. NO REFUND.
You may request more than one space; however, commercial vendors have priority. If we have to reduce space
allotted, we will start with last reserved. Refunds, if necessary, will be made at the show.
NOTE: If a group reserves space, The Booth Committee expects the booth to be manned in high-peak
hours during the week. Show hours are from 8:00 AM to 6:00 PM, but public traffic is from 9:00 AM to
4:00 PM. We expect that booths will be staffed during public traffic hours, especially on Friday-Sunday.
Each group will be allotted a maximum of 5 badges good for all 5 days. Sign for your passes at the Booth
Committee table on Tuesday through Friday at noon. Additional five day badges are $15.00 each. Badges are for
booth workers only. Those exhibiting dogs at the show do not need additional credentials.
NO WILL CALL: Non-profit groups must make own arrangements to pass badges or pay entry for your workers.
