Submit the exhibit space application to reserve your booth. Booth space will be assigned on a first-come, first-served basis. Once PMMI receives your application, we will contact you to assign your space. To start your application, go to Reserve My Booth.
The base rate is $32.25 per square foot. PMMI member space rates vary. If you are a PMMI Member and would like to know your space rate, please call 571.612.3200.
Drayage/material handling is included in your space rate provided your shipment/truck checks in at the Pennsylvania Convention Center by 2:00 pm on your assigned target move-in date. See the PACK EXPO East Rules & Regulations for additional information and special assessment pricing.
Drayage is the moving of the exhibitor’s machinery, etc., off the exhibitor’s truck at the dock to the exhibitor’s booth and back to the dock to be loaded back onto the truck. This is included in the price of the exhibitor’s booth space.
A nonrefundable 25% deposit should accompany your Exhibit Space Application. An additional 50% payment is due by August 25, 2023. Final payment is due November 17, 2023. If you have any questions about payment for your booth space, you can contact Gisella Zapata at firstname.lastname@example.org or 571.612.3200.
Each exhibitor is assigned a priority point for space selection. PACK EXPO East, PACK EXPO International and PACK EXPO Las Vegas hold separate priority standings. By exhibiting continuously, and those ahead of you in priority not exhibiting, an exhibitor begins to move up the priority point system. Choosing not to exhibit at PACK EXPO Las Vegas or PACK EXPO International does not affect your PACK EXPO East priority.
Booths that are 599 sq. ft. and under have a maximum 12’ height restriction (no hanging signs permitted), booths 600-1499 sq. ft. have a maximum 14’ height restriction and booths 1500 sq. ft. and over have a maximum 18’ height restriction. Setback and line-of-sight rules apply. For more information, please consult the complete Rules & Regulations.
Exhibitors can register as many booth personnel as they would like, for free in advance. All badge registrations after the advanced deadline will incur a $15 fee per badge. All badges must be picked up on-site. Registration will open September 2023.
