BOOTH STAFFING

Exhibits MUST remain in place until 4:00 p.m., on February 16, 2017.  Any exhibits removed before 4:00 p.m. on February 16, 2017 will be subject to discipline, up to the loss of booth space for the 2018 World Ag Expo.

CANOPIES

Canopies including ceilings, umbrellas and canopy frames, may be decorative or functional (such as to shade computer monitors from ambient light or to allow for hanging products). Canopies for in-line or perimeter booths should comply with line-of-sight requirements.  The bottom of the canopy should not be lower than 7 feet from the floor within 5 feet of any aisle. Canopy supports should be no wider than 3 inches. This applies to any booth configuration that has a line-of-sight restriction.

CONDENSATION

A substantial amount of condensation can occur. You are encouraged to cover moisture sensitive materials with plastic at night.

EXHIBIT SPACE POLICIES

Confine the presentation and distribution of materials to the boundary of the exhibit space. Obtain written approval from WAE Management before the showing of any demonstrations, live entertainment or use of live animals. Do not create a major disturbance to the exhibit space surface (trenching, footings, postholes, flagpoles, drilling or digging) without obtaining prior written approval, on-site authorization from WAE Management, and paying the Disturbed Space Deposit. Minor disturbances to the exhibit space require returning the space to the condition in which it was found at move-in.

FIRE CODE

California Fire Code requires all combustible decorative materials, including table covers and table skirting used in tents, canopies and assembly-type structures, to be flame resistant as determined by procedures set forth in the code. If the materials do not meet the minimum standards for flame-resistant properties as determined by the Tulare City Fire Department, you will be required to remove all material in violation. Exhibitors who are in need of approved materials for exhibit display purposes are advised to contact Diamond Rental at worldagexpo@diamondeventsandtents.com (888) 844-4001.

Please note: if your exhibit space is located next to any fire equipment, all fire equipment must be visible and accessible at all times. 

HANGING SIGNS & GRAPHICS

Items hanging from pipe and drape should not exceed five pounds and should be hung from the top drape bar. Signs should be made of light weight vinyl or foam with grommets and attach to the top bar with an “S” type hook, the end of hook going over the bar must have an opening exceeding 1-1/2 inches. No signage may be pinned to the drapes. Holes may not be created in the drape. Contact waesales@farmshow.org for banner/sign information. No hanging signs allowed from the ceiling of any building or pavillion.

HEALTH DEPARTMENT PERMIT

If you are giving away food samples, pre-packaged food, bottled water or other beverages, a health permit is required.*

LIGHTING

No lighting, fixtures, trusses or overhead lighting are allowed outside exhibit boundaries. Lighting, including gobos, should be directed to the inner confines of the space. Lighting should not project onto other exhibits/aisles. Potentially harmful lighting, such as lasers or ultraviolet lighting must be approved by WAE management. Lighting that spins, rotates, pulsates or other specialized lighting effects should be in good taste and not interfere with neighboring exhibitors or otherwise detract from the general atmosphere of the event.

LINE-OF-SIGHT

Display materials must not obstruct neighboring exhibitors’ line-of-sight. The maximum height is allowed only in the rear half of the booth space, with a 4-foot height restriction imposed on all materials in the remaining space forward to the aisle.

MUSIC, NOISE & VEHICLES

Noise from sound equipment in booths may not disrupt activities of neighboring exhibitors. Speakers and sound devices should be positioned to direct sound into the booth and not into the aisle.

Sound and noise should not exceed 85 decibels when measured from the aisle immediately in front of a booth. Be aware that music played in booths, whether live or recorded, may be subject to laws governing the use of copyrighted compositions. ASCAP, BMI and SESAC are authorized licensing organizations that collect copyright fees on behalf of composers and publishers of music.

Display vehicles may not be started.

TOWERS

A tower is a free-standing exhibit component separate from the main exhibit fixture. The height restriction is the same as that which applies to the appropriate exhibit space configuration being used.

Maximum allowed dimensions are 2’ x 2’ diameter/width, but may go to the maximum height of building/pavilion. For questions about towers, contact Exhibitor Services at waesales@farmshow.org or (559) 688-1030.
