Please note that the Exhibitor's Lounge in Room #202 will be setup as a quiet room for exhibitors to use if needed, however, there will not be any food & beverage service.
All exhibitors need to display their badge on show days to gain admittance to the show floor.
Exhibitors are given the minimum number of badges allotted to their booth automatically (see chart below) with no form needing to be filled out. If the number of badges needed for your staff doesn't exceed the amount shown below, then simply
have your staff check in at the Show Office or before the show to receive their badge.
Please note that badges do not display exhibitor or company names but there is room to put in your personal business card.
|100 square feet||=||6 free badges|
|200 square feet||=||8 free badges|
|300 square feet||=||10 free badges|
|400 square feet||=||12 free badges|
If you need more than the number of badges allotted to your booth, then please fill out the Extra Exhibitor Badge Order Form before TBD and we will have them ready for you at check in.
DO NOT LEAVE YOUR BADGES IN YOUR BOOTH as you need them to gain access to the show floor. Replacement badges are $10 each if lost, left at home, left in booth, a dog ate them etc.
BOOTH AWARDS & TIPS!
Each year, the Edmonton Fall Home Show awards five exhibitors, each in a different category, for standing out from their competition and peers. The categories for the booth awards are listed below, accompanied by the criteria our panel of judges look for when selecting the winning booth and company. We value all of the hard work our exhibitors put in to create their displays and design their spaces and award those who go above and beyond to put their best foot forward.
|Best In Show||Regardless of size, this booth displays the most unique display and design of any other in the show.|
|Best Large Space||This award goes out to the best booth that is 400 square feet or larger.|
|Best Medium Space||This award goes out to the best booth that is 200 - 399 square feet.|
|Best Small Space||This award goes out to the best booth that is 100 - 199 square feet.|
This award goes out to the exhibitor who is active in promoting the show and their involvement in the show.
Review the booth guidelines to make sure your booth is designed to meet Marketplace Events and Edmonton Expo Centre's standards:
- Booth Design Guidelines
- Edmonton Expo Centre Venue Guide **UPDATED** - Read important information regarding fire safety, safety & security, general rules, etc.
Displays containing soil, mulch or similar materials must use a fire retardant protective coating such as plastic to protect the floor and all facility equipment. Please note that additional cleaning charges may apply.

There have been a number of spam emails offering our attendee lists. These are scams and the senders are unauthorized to use the Marketplace Events’ name. These scammers are attempting to receive monies from exhibiting companies without providing anything in return. These emails are not approved by Marketplace Events, and Marketplace Events would never ask for bank information or other sensitive information over email.
We strongly recommend that all exhibitors be extremely vigilant when it comes to giving your information to any company that you are not familiar with. If you have any questions about whether or not a company is warranted in reaching out to you regarding your participation in the Show(s), please don't hesitate to reach out to your Exhibit Sales Consultant.
