EXHIBITOR RULES & REGULATIONS
Booth Creation, Execution & Design:

Exhibitor booths must be created, designed & executed within your allotted booth dimensions. All measurements must be exact & must include: furniture, flooring, cords, signage, and any other items you wish to present in your exhibitor booth space. 

All Exhibitors must submit their Booth Designs to Show Director Diana Pires at [email protected] for approval by February 11th 2024. Please also note that your booth design will automatically be submitted for consideration for the Outstanding Booth Design Award at the Living Luxe Awards Gala.

Booth Dimensions, Heights & Neighboring Exhibitors:

All Exhibitors must communicate with their neighboring exhibitor booth(s) to ensure that all parties are aware of the sides and back of each booth, as to not impede onto other booth designs. 

If your booth is back to back with another booth, both exhibitors must maintain the same standard booth height of 8’ H in order to promote visual cohesion, unless written approval has been provided by LLDS & the Show Director. This includes side walls, which must also extend all the way to the aisles. Should an exhibitor wish to extend their booth (in any direction), this must be cleared by the Show Director first to ensure this can be accommodated. 

If your booth is an island (that is, it has no adjoining booths on any side), your booth height can be a maximum of 12’ H. 

Booth heights may not exceed a maximum of 12’ , unless written consent has been provided and approved by the LLDS organizers. 

Floor Coverings:

The cost of booth carpet/floor covering is not included in your booth rental, but it is mandatory that you have some kind of floor covering included in your design, & contained within your allotted booth dimensions. Exhibitors can bring in their own or rent floor covering directly from Artam Design Inc, the official Show Decorator. Exhibitors wishing to lay tile or other floor covering, or build any structure, may not adhere it directly to the exhibition floor. It is required that plastic sheeting, or some other suitable protection be laid on the exhibition floor to avoid damage fees upon teardown inspection. Exhibitors must not use masking tape, clear packaging tape or duct tape to adhere the covering to the show floor. The only tape authorized for use on exhibit hall floors is black #174 high-adhesion double-faced tape for floor cable & wire. Charges will apply for all tape damage and/or adhesive removal following an inspection post-exhibition.

Exhibitors with raised floors are limited to a maximum of 6” H off the ground. If you plan on raising the floors in your booth higher than 13 mm, they must be wheelchair accessible by use of ramps. Ramps must be at least 36” wide and have a maximum slope of 1:12. Please note that any ramps required for your space must also fall within your assigned booth space (cannot extend into the show aisles).

Vehicles

Vehicles which are approved for use in exhibition or display areas must be protected by Visqueen®, Masonite®, Homasote®, tarpaulin, plywood, or comparable protective material to be used to prevent damage.

Floor Loads:

No materials handling equipment or objects weighing more than 500 pounds per square foot (2,441 kg per square meter) may be placed on the exhibition floor, unless authorized in writing by TCC. 

Booth Lighting:

LLDS recommends exhibitors to look into elevating their booth design by incorporating feature lighting within your booth, which can be ordered directly through SHOWTECH. You can also provide your own fixtures and have SHOWTECH provide the electrical support & rigging for your booth.

Signage & Solicitation:

You must keep all of your signage & marketing materials within your booth space and they must not block views of the rest of the show floor. All signage must be professionally printed, mounted & displayed; pop-up/ roll-up banners are also permitted. The use of nails, hooks, screws, staples or tacks on any existing TCC walls or flooring is forbidden. Failure to comply will result in a minimum charge per occurrence billed to you directly. 

Please note that overhead banners/ ceiling-mounted display signage/ branding is permitted to be hung above your exhibitor booth, which includes ceiling-mounted decor. Under no circumstances shall any signs advertising “Sale/ Discount/ Show Specials” be permitted on the show floor, in order to keep the integrity of the luxury show branding & elevated clientele. 

Distribution of samples, collateral, or any other promotional materials must be confined within your allotted booth space. Exhibitors intending to distribute food or beverage samples within their booth are required to comply with the guidelines on the Food Sample Form. Once completed, this form is to be sent to Daniel Dearlove at [email protected]. Exhibitors may not solicit in the show aisles, entrances, or anywhere on the TCC grounds outside of your booth space. 

Booth Cleaning:

LLDS will be arranging for daily cleaning of the common areas & aisles of the exhibition hall on show days, however all exhibitors are responsible for the cleanliness of their booths. Cleaning services can be arranged directly through TCC, or you can opt to have your team tidy up your booth space personally after the show closes each day. As long as your booth is tidy before 9:00am the next show day, you are welcome to do this yourself. Please note that you are not permitted to outsource your own cleaning company, as cleaning services are exclusively provided by TCC. Also note that if any power is required for your cleaning (such as that to power a vacuum cleaner), you must make prior arrangements with SHOWTECH

Once the LLDS 2024 concludes, all exhibitors are responsible for removing all of their own personal garbage and debris from their booth upon completion of their teardown. Please note that any exhibitors that leave garbage or debris behind will be charged a garbage removal fee once teardown commences.

Building/ Construction Rules Onsite at TCC:

All exhibitors must ensure to keep their area clean, contained and dust free when building their booths on site. Contractors must leave a clean work site, otherwise charges will be billed for cleanup.
