Space Information

From a fully customized exhibit to a turnkey solution, the Gulf Coast Flooring Market offers several options to meet your needs.

Our focus is on organizing a first-class event that won’t break the bank! Our rates are half of the other flooring shows across the U.S. because we want exhibitors to notice a high return on their investment. The best part about exhibiting at the Mississippi Coast Convention Center is you can move in your own goods! General service contractor, Shepard Exposition Services will be available if you would like to hire labor to help unload/load or if your products require the use of a forklift. Otherwise, you are free to set up your own booth and move in your own products.

Space Rates – all booths are sold as raw space

In order to keep exhibitors’ ROI as high as possible, we offer the most competitive rates in the industry.

Each booth at the Gulf Coast Flooring Market is sold as raw space. Exhibitors are encouraged to bring their own equipment and displays.

Booths are sold as raw space and do not include drape, electricity, furniture or flooring.

Carpet or flooring is not required, but it is encouraged for the comfort of your staff and visitors to your booth since the trade show floor is concrete.

Drape Packages

$1.99 per linear foot: walls will be draped in white drape with 33″ tall drape on two sidewalls and 8′ high drape on the back wall.
