EXHIBITOR BADGES

All exhibitors need to display their badge on show days to gain admittance to the show floor. 

Exhibitors are given the minimum number of badges allotted to their booth automatically (see chart below)  with no form needing to be filled out. If the number of badges needed for your staff doesn't exceed the amount shown below, then simply have your staff check in at the Exhibitor Help Desk during or before the show to receive their badge.

Please note that badges do not display exhibitor or company names on them but are dicut in the size of a standard business card for you to insert.

100 square feet = 6 free badges
200 square feet = 8 free badges
300 square feet = 10 free badges
400 square feet = 12 free badges
Each additional 100 square feet gets an additional 2 badges.


If you need more than the number of badges allotted to your booth, then please fill out the Extra Exhibitor Badge Order Form before January 5th 2018 and we will have them ready for you at check in.

DO NOT LEAVE YOUR BADGES IN YOUR BOOTH as you need them to gain access to the show floor. Replacement badges are $10 each if lost, left at home, left in booth, a dog ate them etc. 

BOOTH AWARDS & TIPS!

Each year, the Calgary Renovation Show awards six exhibitors, each in a different category, for standing out from their competition and peers. The categories for the booth awards are listed below, accompanied by the criteria our panel of judges look for when selecting the winning booth and company. We value all of the hard work our exhibitors put in to create their displays and design their spaces and award those who go above and beyond to put their best foot forward.

Best In Show Regardless of size, this booth displays the most unique display and design of any other in the show.
Best Large Space
Best booth 400 square feet or larger
Best Medium Space
Best Booth between 200 - 399 square feet
Best Small Space
Best Booth between 100 - 199 square feet
Rookie of the Year Regardless of size, this brand new company has taken the initiative to design their space in a manner that truly sets them apart from other new companies.
Nailed it!
Regardless of size, this booth has just overall nailed it at the show! 


Things we look for:

• Meeting basic booth standards/expectations – height, signage, flooring, layout, etc 
• Full floor covering (no subfloor, concrete or terracover exposed) and quality of floor covering 
• Hard wall display (not mandatory but helps in the presentation of a professional display)
• Signage and signage quality
• No exposed studs or wiring (inside and outside booth)
• Paint and paint quality – taking the time to edge, tape seams, make the paint job look professional
• Wall quality – no visible damage
• Creativity and thought evident in booth design
