Saturday morning Continental Breakfast will be set up in the Vendor Hall to encourage conference attendee traffic. Vendors are encouraged to donate an art item for the Friday evening Art Auction.
We offer 2 both sizes.

2. Junior Booth Size aprx. 10 x 5 - limited availability/ perhaps 5 or so of these will be available on a more limited basis.
The junior booth size is likely to be one row in the vendor hall, therefore it is more likely if you choose the "Junior booth size" that you will be placed next to a competing business/educational institution.
