Electricity & Lighting
Please refer to the Event Layout page for information on table locations that may have electrical outlet access. If you would like electricity for your booth, please note your preference on the Vendor Application. Access is very limited and cannot be guaranteed. If you need to use electricity, you must supply your own grounded extension cord.
TBS is committed to environmental sustainability and maintains low lighting in most of the display areas. If you need lighting to show off your displays, then we suggest requesting a table with electrical access. Again, we cannot guarantee your first choice so you should register early in order to improve your chance of getting your first choice!
