Exhibitor Warning

We have been made aware that companies claiming to be affiliated with Marketplace Events LLC, such as but not limited to: International Fairs Directory, Event-Fair (formerly Expo-Guide & FAIR Guide), Exhibition Housing Services and Micro Media Techno Zone - are reaching out to our exhibitors offering sponsorship items in exchange for (exhibiting) company information and/or banking/credit card information. These companies do not have any business relationship with Marketplace Events LLC, nor have we given them authorization to use our Show names or Show-related information. 

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.

    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 ShowRegardless of size, this booth displays the most unique display and design of any other in the show.
    Best Large SpaceThis award goes out to the best booth that is 400 square feet or larger.
    Best Medium SpaceThis award goes out to the best booth that is 200 - 399 square feet.
    Best Small SpaceThis award goes out to the best booth that is 100 - 199 square feet.
    Social Savvy

    This award goes out to the exhibitor who is active in promoting the show and their involvement in the show.

    Things we look for:
    • Meeting basic booth standards/expectations – height, signage, flooring, layout, etc 
    • Full floor covering (no subfloor, concrete or terracover exposed) and quality of floor covering 
    • Hard wall display (not mandatory but helps in the presentation of a professional display)
    • Signage and signage quality
    • No exposed studs or wiring (inside and outside booth)
    • Paint and paint quality – taking the time to edge, tape seams, make the paint job look professional
