Your school's booth design should represent your entire EAST program without focusing on one specific project. Your booth space should be used as a tool to display information that supports the amazing projects taking place in your EAST program.

All booths will be provided with the following::

  • 10' x 10' booth

Note regarding chairs: Please make sure that everyone from you school understands that there should be only two chairs in each booth. Please do not "borrow" chairs from other booths. If the booth company notices more than two chairs in your booth, they will invoice you for the extra chairs.

Booth Guidelines

Please review the following booth guidelines & assessment information for this year. Please make sure your booth designers follow these guidelines, as they are a part of your Program Impact Assessment.

  • Booth design represents a professional business style booth.
  • All parts of your booth structure must fit in the 10' x 10' space. Please make sure no part of the structure extends into the walkway area.
  • Your booth decoration must not be higher than 10 feet.
  • Do not attach anything to the booth drapes (straight pens, hot glue, etc.).
  • Your booth should not interfere with or distract from the booths around you. All visible walls must be considered.
  • No power tools may be used to construct your booth at the Conference. You may use a standard screwdriver, pliers, and hammer.
  • You will have a total of three (3) hours to set up your booth (not including your unloading time). Please make sure you can accomplish this goal in that time frame because additional time will not be provided. It is suggested that you practice booth set up prior to arrival to ensure extra time will not be needed.

Do NOT bring the following for your booth:

  • No helium balloons - the Convention Center strictly prohibits any use of helium balloons.
  • CD Players - Music is not permitted in your booth unless it is part of a student project. Even then it must be kept at a low volume to ensure there are no disruptions to the neighboring booths. During Program Impact Assessment Judging music is only allowed with headphones unless you are presenting to the judges. See Program Impact Assessment Guidelines for more information.
  • Game Boys or other Gaming Devices

Note:  Test the steadiness of your booth structure prior to arrival at the Conference. All booths should be sturdy and safe to all those around you.


The booth design plays a role in your school's overall Program Impact Assessment score.  A seperate group of judges will evaluate your booth prior to the exhibit hall opening Wednesday morning. Please make sure that your booth is completely designed before departing the exhibit hall at 3:45 PM on Tuesday, February 19th because you will not be allowed back into the Exhibit Hall until the following morning.

Please remember that the focus of the booth design should be to show aspects of your entire program.  See Program Impact Assessment for more information.

2008 Booth Rubric


All schools are required to remain at the Conference, with your booth completely decorated, until the final session on Thursday is complete. The approximate booth breakdown time is 1:15 PM.  Please schedule all transportation requirements accordingly. 

This is Public Day, the day visitors and dignitaries will be there. We do not want them to see empty booths. Exceptions will only be provided for EAST programs that have to catch a flight.
