Below are some exhibitor guidelines on what to expect:

  • Each exhibitor is provided with a standard six-foot table. (Please do not expect a typical 10x10 booth space - this is a table top exhibit set up.)
  • Your Exhibit table payment includes ONE pass for an employee/attendee to staff the table.
  • Pull-Up banners are allowed. You are welcome to place anything you wish on your six-foot table as long as it does not interfere with your neighboring exhibitor in height or width. NOTHING is to be placed in front of or to the side of your table such as literature racks etc.
  • Please bring your own table cover (some bring a company logo table cover)
  • Electricity WILL BE available for those requiring it. However, there will be limited tables with electrical access.
  • If you have requested electrical access for your table please plan to bring a power cord.
  • There is no "wall space" for banners to be fixed or hung on the wall behind your table.
  • Chairs are NOT provided. There is room behind each table for 1-2 attendees to stand and greet visitors. There is some room behind each table and under for storing your materials and a few boxes.
  • Shipping Materials: It is best if everyone brings their exhibit materials with them. However, if you need to send materials ahead of time, contact Gilbert Luque, Operations Manager ([email protected]).

Book your exhibit tables and lock in your sponsorship now for our premier fund raiser (and fun event) of the year, the Annual MTS Houston Barbecue Social which will be held the evening of October 27, 2022.

In addition to refreshments, a wonderful barbecue dinner, exhibits and social networking, there will also be door prizes and a silent auction. This is a great event and we expect several hundred participants. Bring along your colleagues and invite your clients ....spouses are also welcome.
