All booths regardless of size must have carpeting or a floor covering. Island booths do not include draping or an ID sign. In addition, 4 free exhibitor badges are included for every 100 square feet of space reserved. Additional badges can be ordered through the Dashboard – see the Badges, Hotel, Travel tile for pricing and to order.
Exhibitors receive 4 free badges for every 100 square feet of space reserved, so a 10 x 20 booth would receive 8. Additional badges can be ordered for a fee, see the Badges, Hotels and Travel tile in the Dashboard for pricing and ordering.
The Terms of Application, which can be found here, are the official regulations and policies that govern the show.
Material Handling, also known as drayage, are charges based on various show operational costs including the storage of freight at the warehouse address, labor and equipment to: load exhibit material, deliver material to the booth, deliver empty containers to and from storage and remove material from the booth for reloading onto outbound carriers. In addition, marshalling yard fees, drivers, equipment rental, teamster and rigging labor are part of the fees. Cost is calculated by 100 lb. units or hundred weight, abbreviated CWT.Material Handling/Drayage should not be confused with the cost to transport your exhibit material directly to the show (McCormick Place).

No. It is NCA’s policy that no exhibitor at the annual Sweets & Snacks Expo may promote, display, sell, offer for sale, or give away any marijuana-containing products or drug paraphernalia. Marijuana-containing products for recreational use are illegal under the federal Controlled Substances Act. Though recreational marijuana is legal in the state of Illinois, McCormick Place is not a licensed marijuana dispensary and so does not permit the retail sale, trade or sampling of any cannabis product.
Also, it is the position of NCA that marijuana-containing edibles are not candy or snack food products. Therefore, they may not be displayed or promoted at the Sweets & Snacks Expo.
