Booth Amenities

You can supply your own booth items, but we have an excellent supplier/decorator in Cherry Convention Services. Use password Pinners17after you click here for their online Exhibitor Kit or you may call them at 770.242.5955 or e-mail Catherine at catherine@cherryconvention.com with questions. Your booth is simply your space with black pipe and drape (8' back wall and 3' sides) and Cherry can supply nearly everything else. Commonly ordered items include draped tables, chairs, carpet & more.

Electrical is actually ordered directly from the Cobb Galleria (along with internet). Basic electrical goes for $85 pre-ordered. They use an online ordering system you can access by clicking here.

Wifi or hardlined internet is is available thru the Cobb Galleria using the same system above. Single users are approximately $90 per show (pre-ordered) or up to 4 users for $260. Faster speeds available.

Booth Design Rules

We are fortunate in our state to not have a lot of set-up and design regulations. All booth amenities must be within the allotted space (nothing in the isles) unless pre-approved. Anything deemed unsafe in the opinion of the expo organizer (such as tipping hazards) will be required to change. We also ask that there be no solid side walls on your booth that block the view to your neighbors for the attendees that are walking down the isle. The provided drape rods will support normal banners but in general are not to be used as booth support. Helium balloons can be used, but only if they are attached securely to your booth. Please do not hand out helium balloons.

Shipping

The Cobb Galleria will accept shipments that arrive within 72 hours of the show. See Cobb's shipping and receiving guidelines here, and fill out their shipping and receiving form here. This form must be submitted to the Cobb Galleria.
