Exhibit Hall Groundplan

Thank you for your interest in being an SETC 2022 Commercial/Educational Exhibitor. We appreciate the time and resources that you invest to make our Exhibit Hall a success. Fern will continue to be our Exhibition Service Contractor, and they have provided this year’s ground plan. Please take a few minutes to review the plan – green booths indicate commercial exhibitors; the remainder are educational exhibitor booths.

For those who completed pre-registration forms in Louisville, please note that no checks were cashed, and no credit cards run. We will be starting the process of booth selection from scratch.

First choice of booth reservations will be given to our sponsors, based on the level and longevity of sponsorship. Once our sponsors have been placed, booths will be assigned on a first come, first serve basis.

Once your registration is complete, please send Lee Crouse ( your top five booth choices, and we will work to accommodate those choices to the best of our ability.
