Approximately 10 days after your contract is received and processed, you will receive an email confirmation of your exhibit space. A counter signed contract will follow in the mail. If you did not submit a deposit with your contract, an invoice will be sent and the required 50% deposit is due net 15 days after receipt of the invoice. If the required 50% deposit is not received within those 15 days, your exhibit space will be released back into the available inventory.
Please find the below list of resources for first-time exhibitors.

CTIA sells raw booth space. Each 10' x 10' linear booth will be set with 8' high black back wall drape, 36" high black side dividers and a 7" x 44" one-line identification sign with Company Name and Booth Number. The exhibit area is NOT carpeted; however, the aisles will be carpeted in latte. The only exception to the above is if you are part of a pavilion, which may include a turn-key exhibit package – check with your sales team contact for more details.
Once your company is a confirmed exhibitor you have access to the following show materials:

Please refer to the CTIA and Convention Center rules and regulations for further information.
Only Island Booths (20' x 20' or larger with aisles on all four sides) may hang signs in their booth. Linear booths (10' in depth) may not hang any signs and all decoration must be floor supported. Exhibitors must submit sign renderings for approval. The sign may not exceed 60% of the length of the booth’s longest dimension. As an example, the length of a sign over a 20' x 60' booth may not exceed 36'.
