IAEE Guidelines for Display Rules and Regulations2019 North American UpdateThe following Guidelines for Display Rules and Regulations have been established by the InternationalAssociation of Exhibitions and Events (IAEE) to assist in promoting continuity and consistency among NorthAmerican exhibitions and events. This revised 2019 edition is offered as a resource for exhibition and eventorganizers to use in creating consistent and fair exhibiting standards for their events.Recognizing that every show is unique, IAEE presents the information contained within asrecommendations or suggestions for exhibiting standards each Organizer should consider. Organizers areencouraged to review the Guidelines and then develop their own show-customized set of exhibiting rulesand regulations based on the individual features of their specific exhibition or event.Once an Organizer has finalized their show’s official set of display rules, it is good practice to provideaccess to a digital copy within the show’s exhibitor prospectus, an exhibitor services kit, and the officialrules and regulations pertaining to exhibitor participation. By providing exhibitors with the professionalstandards expected of their displays and participation, they will be prepared to properly design, buildand plan their booth’s layout and content allowing for an environment where all exhibitors will have theopportunity for successful interaction with their audiences.Important Note: Although compliance with fire, safety, the U.S. Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA),and other state, federal or provincial government requirements have been addressed, Organizers shouldalways check with exhibition service contractors and the facility for specific details on local regulationsand requirements.IAEE is a global association that serves as the foremost authority on exhibitions and events managementand operations, and these Guidelines are the model for most North American exhibitions and eventsbut in all instances, organizations should consult their legal counsel. In no event shall IAEE be held liablefor damages of any kind in connection with the material, methods, information, techniques, opinions orprocedures expressed, presented, or illustrated in these Guidelines or related materials. 2019, International Association of Exhibitions and Events (IAEE)

IAEE Guidelines for Display Rules and Regulations2019 North American UpdateIAEE has identified two distinctly different styles of show display regulations. One style is “Line-of-Sight” while the second is “CubicContent.” Organizers should decide which style is best suited to their event or designated section of the event.LINE-OF-SIGHT STYLELine-of-Sight display rules provide restrictions on certain areas of booths to allow attendees to view neighboring booths in their lineof sight as they walk the floor. There are a variety of booth types, and each one is addressed below with specific insight on how toimplement Line-of-Sight regulations.LINEAR .219M)(3.048M)10'The ability to have products orservices easily seen by attendeesas they walk the aisles is essentialto all exhibitors, and that is thebasis for including a Linear BoothLine-of-Sight setback rule. LinearBooths, also called “in-line” booths,are generally arranged in a straightline and have neighboring exhibitorson their immediate right and left,leaving only one side exposed tothe aisle.PLAN VIEWLEFT SIDE VIEW10'5'Dimensions8'5'4'(1.219M)4'(2.438M)8'4'For purposes of consistencyand ease of layout and/orreconfiguration, floor plan design10'in increments of 10ft (3.05m) hasbecome the de facto standard inthe United States. Therefore, unlessconstricted by space or other10' X 10' LINEAR BOOTHlimitations, Linear Booths are mostcommonly 10ft (3.05m) wide and10ft (3.05m) deep, i.e. 10ft by 10ft(3.05m by 3.05m). A maximum back wall height limitation of 8ft (2.44m) is generally specified to prevent display materials fromimposing on neighboring exhibits behind the back wall.FRONT VIEWUse of SpaceRegardless of the number of Linear Booths utilized, e.g. 10ft by 20ft (3.05m by 6.10m), 10ft by 30ft (3.05m by 9.14m), 10ft by 40ft(3.05m by 12.19m), etc., display materials should be arranged in such a manner so as not to obstruct sight lines of neighboringexhibitors. The maximum height of 8ft (2.44m) is allowed only in the rear half of the booth space, with a 4ft (1.22m) heightrestriction imposed on all materials in the remaining space forward to the aisle. Note: When three or more Linear Booths are used incombination as a single exhibit space, the 4ft (1.22m) height limitation is applied only to that portion of exhibit space which is within10ft (3.05m) of an adjoining booth.PAGE 1 of 15 2019, International Association of Exhibitions and Events (IAEE)

IAEE Guidelines for Display Rules and Regulations2019 North American UpdateEND-CAP BOOTHAn End-cap configuration is essentially an in-line (linear) booth placed in the position of a Peninsula or Split Island. For shows thathave Line-of-Sight rules and not Cubic Content, this configuration must follow the dimensions below. Organizers should be alertto exhibitors reserving End-cap configurations to ensure they do not violate Linear Booth Line-of-Sight regulations for neighboringexhibits. (In most cases, this booth style is not recommended due to the Line-of-Sight issues, and Organizers should be aware ofthese challenges when using them.)(3.048M)10'AISLE5'4'(1 .219 (3.048M)5'(1.524M)LEFT SIDE VIEWAISLEPLAN VIEW10'4'8'(1.219M)(2.438M)5'20'10'(1.524M)5'( 2.43 8M)8'(3.048M)10'(1.2 19M)4'(1.524M)5'END-CAP BOOTHFRONT VIEWDimensions and Use of SpaceEnd-cap Booths are generally 10ft (3.05m) deep by 20ft (6.10m) wide.

A typical maximum height range allowance is 16ft to 20ft (4.88m to 6.10m), including signage for the center portion of theback wall.

IAEE Guidelines for Display Rules and Regulations2019 North American UpdateCUBIC CONTENT STYLECubic Content style allows exhibits to fully occupy the width, depth and height of the booth footprint. For example, a 10ft by 10ft(3.05m x 3.05m) booth would be allowed to utilize the full volume of the cube of a 10ft wide (3.05m) x 10ft deep (3.05m) x 8ft(2.44m) high area.It is the choice of the Organizer to allow use of full Cubic Content in linear exhibit space or to observe the Line-of-Sight set-backrule. It is common at certain types of exhibitions or events to eliminate the Line-of-Sight requirement for Linear, End-cap, andPeninsula Booths that back up to Linear Booths. This permits exhibitors to utilize the full Cubic Content of the booth.Organizers that utilize Cubic Content in Linear Booths do so for one or all of these reasons: Cubic Content is more conducive to certain types of product displays or experiences. Cubic Content maximizes the exhibit space and investment. Generally, exhibitions outside North America utilize Cubic Content making the show friendlier to international exhibitors. Cubic Content reduces the need to police exhibits to enforce Line-of-Sight setback rules.Use of Cubic Content may create situations where the Organizer must address exhibits that have unfinished walls.
