Description of service

I paid $1000 for the rental of space at a trade show in Cleveland, Ohio. The space I rented was 10'x 10'. The $1000 covered the cost of the booth rental, use of electricity, tables, 2 parking passes, and 2 extra trade show passes.

Review of Service

The $1000 was money well spent. It was nice that I didn't have to pay extra to have electricity. It was also an added bonus that I got parking passes and tickets to the home and garden show. $1000 seems like a lot of money to pay for a booth, however I made all of that money back within the first few hours.


If you need to rent booth space at a trade show, there are many things that you should consider. First, will you get a lot of foot traffic? You should also consider whether or not you have to bring your own tables. Ask whether you need to pay extra for the use of the facility's electricity. A lot of trade shows require you to pay for that. You should find out if any parking passes or trade show passes are included in the price. Trade show will often offer perks for the vendors.
