Due to potential floor plat changes related to COVID-19 restrictions, IASB will be assigning booths in 2021 to address mitigation requirements needed for the IASB Trade Show.
IASB will make every effort to assign booths
for repeat exhibitors in similar areas requested from prior years. Keep in mind, if the floor plat changes due to spacing restrictions, this may not be possible.
Priority placement will be provided for repeat exhibitors, sponsors, and the submission
date of the contract AND payment.
IASB will release the exhibitor floor plat September 15, 2021. At this time, COVID spacing consideration for exhibit booths should be in place for the November trade show.
