Description of service

I paid the cost of $25 for a booth at a home and garden show in Akron, OH. This cost did not include tables, chairs, or use of electric hookup. It was for one booth at the show located in the middle aisle. It did include entrance to the show. I had to pay for my own parking. No guest passes were provided.

Review of Service

The $25 that I paid was a reasonable price to pay for the use of space to set up my jewelry at the home and garden show. I could have paid an extra $10 if I needed electricity, but that was not necessary for my booth. I was placed in the center of the middle aisle, so I did receive a lot of foot traffic. I feel that parking should have been included in this price. So, I had to pay an extra $5 for parking. I also feel that they should have provided me with some guest passes for my family to enjoy the show. Other than that, I was fairly happy with the cost of this booth at the trade show.


If you need a booth at a trade show, you should find out what the cost includes. Some places will provide you with a table and chairs so that you don't have to bring your own.
