Exhibit display height limits

Linear/in-line spaces are generally 10 feet (3.05 meters) deep and arranged in a straight line with neighboring booths. Regardless of the number of linear booths utilized, display materials should be arranged in such a manner so as not to obstruct sight lines of neighboring exhibitors. The maximum height of 10 feet (3.05 meters) is allowed only in the rear half of the booth space, with a 4 foot (1.22 meters) height restriction imposed on all materials in the remaining space forward to the aisle.

Peninsulas or Split Island spaces are open on three sides and share a common back wall of standard 8 feet (2.44 meters) drape with another booth. The entire cubic content of this booth may be used, up to the maximum allowable height allowance of 12 feet (3.66 meters), including signage.

NOTE: Because the pipe and drape behind all Linear/in-line and Peninsula or Split Island spaces is 8 feet tall (2.44 meters), any display that exceeds this height and is visible from the aisle or adjoining exhibits must be made presentable by the Exhibitor. The back and sides of a display that exceeds the height of the pipe and drape must be attractive and finished and not have any company branding so as to not infringe on any exhibitor in adjoining spaces.

Island spaces can be any size booth that is exposed to aisles on all four sides. The entire cubic content of the space may be used up to the maximum allowable height of 18 feet (5.49 meters), including signage.

EXCEPTIONS: Height exceptions can be made for major sponsors and others on a case-by-case basis. Click here to submit a support ticket to consult with show management.

Displays not satisfactory in the opinion of Management shall be made presentable at the Exhibitor’s expense.

All displays, no matter the height, must meet our Safety, Fire, Environment, and Health policies outlined below, and be deemed safe by Management, OCC, Fern Expo, and/or any other governing body deemed appropriate by Management.

Overhead hanging signs

Hanging signs are allowed for spaces that are 400 net square feet or larger. The top of the sign can hang no higher than 18 feet (5.49 meters) from the ground, measured from the floor to the top of the sign. All signs and banners must be a minimum of double-sided and ideally viewed from at least three sides. Hanging signs must hang over your purchased exhibit space and are not allowed to exceed the outline of your space, and are not allowed to hang over another exhibitor’s space or over the public aisle space. You may order hanging signs (graphics and rigging) in the Exhibitor Kit.

Exhibit Hall ceiling height and floor weight restrictions

Ceiling height is 30 feet (9.1 meters) tall. The Exhibit Hall floors are rated for 365 lbs (166 kilograms) per square foot (.093 square meter).

Move in and move out

Fern Expo and the Oregon Convention Center needs set up plans from any exhibitor with displays over 3,000 pounds (1,361 kilograms). Exhibitors are allowed to set up their own booth display, but are not allowed to do any rigging or use their own forklift. Equipment and labor may be ordered in the Exhibitor Kit, or at the showsite service desk. If Exhibitors want a third party other than Fern Expo to help with set up and/or teardown of their booth, they must complete and submit the Exhibitor Appointed Contractor Approval Form included in the Exhibitor Kit (available January 2024) at least forty-five (45) days prior to the Event’s Exhibitor move-in date and at that time also provide to Trifecta Collective: (i) a written statement setting forth the identity and intended use of the EAC, and (ii) a certificate of insurance coverage which has named Fern Expo and Trifecta Collective as additional insureds on the EAC’s policies.

Move in schedule:

  • Monday, March 25: 1:00 PM – 7:00 PM
  • Tuesday, March 26: 8:00 AM – 3:30 PM

A Welcome Reception will take place in the Exhibit Hall starting at 4:00 PM Pacific on Tuesday, so Exhibitors must be set up and ready by 2:00 PM Pacific on that day.

Move out schedule:

  • Thursday, March 28: 3:30 PM – 10:00 PM

Exhibitors are not allowed to begin tearing down or moving out before 3:30 PM on Thursday, March 28. Move-outs or tear downs before 3:30 PM on Thursday, March 28, may result in fees and/or Management no longer allowing the offending company to exhibit at the International Mass Timber Conference in future years. Exhibit space must be completely cleaned and exhibits cleared from the OCC by 10:00 PM Pacific on Thursday, March 28, 2024.

Signs, displays, and decorations

The Oregon Convention Center Sustainability Guide for Exhibitors states that foam core signage is banned, unless it is designed to be reused and/or the decorator brings it in and out. All signs, displays or decorations are subject to conference staff and Oregon Convention Center approval. No signs, banners, displays or exhibits will be permitted in the public areas of the Convention Center without prior conference staff or hotel approval. All decorations must meet approval of the Fire Department. Flammable substances are not permitted in the building or anywhere on the Oregon Convention Center’s premises. The Convention Center will not permit the affixing of anything to the walls, floors or ceiling with nails, staples, adhesives or any other substance without prior conference staff and Convention Center approval. See the Exhibitor Contract for complete rules and regulations.
