The Depot PROHIBITS the mounting of signs, banners etc. on the walls. This is strictly enforced. If you violate this prohibition you may be charged a damage fee. If you have requested and are being provided electricity, please bring your own extension cord. Please, do not staff more than three people at any one time at your table/booth.

Door Prizes/Making Your Display Interesting Exhibitors are encouraged to bring a basket for patrons to submit a business card or contact information, to be drawn for prizes at a designated time set forth by that Exhibitor. This is an excellent way to see who has visited your table and build a contact list. You may provide brochures, giveaways, other items of interest, or appetizer-size food samples (commercially pre-packaged; and no water/soft drinks). To discourage “swag-gathering” behavior, we suggest that you ask visitors to engage with you in some way before offering a giveaway. 5.

A representative from your organization must be present at your table/booth throughout the event. However, a BWA member may be available to staff your table while you take a necessary break.
