Outdoor booth exhibitors may bring a tent as long as it fits in your allotted space, and tables and chairs will be available upon request at check-in. You may NOT drill/stake your tent into the asphalt — weights will need to be used if you wish to secure your outdoor tent. Any damage to the asphalt will be the responsibility of the exhibitor.
