BUILDERS SHOW EXHIBITOR CRITERIA: Exhibitors must be a construction-related business. Retail companies must bring construction/building/home-related products. If you are unsure whether your business qualifies, contact the show coordinators.
BOOTH SIZES AND DESIGN: See the registration form for booth sizes, as they vary. Blue enclosure drapes and 110 electric power are included in the booth fee. Back drape panels are 8’ high and side panels are 3’ high. Exhibitors may construct their own walls, but they must not block the view of adjoining vendors.

OUTDOOR DISPLAY SPACES: Kutdoor display spaces are available outside the front entrance of the mall for $150.00 each. Each one accommodates a large company vehicle, a semi-truck, trailer or equipment display. They are available to registered exhibitors only. If more than eight businesses want an outdoor space, the U.P. Home & Garden Show Committee will choose eight on April 1, based upon various criteria, including types of exhibits, past displays, and adding variety to the show entrance area.

Home & Garden Show Booth Awards website page and in social media. Each will receive a plaque to display in their booth all weekend and at their place of business after the show.
