Upon acceptance as an exhibitor in the 2020 Home & Garden Idea Fair, Event Management shall:
- Provide a copy of the completed application/contract indicating assigned booth space and date balance is due.
- Provide 8-foot high drape in back and 3-foot side drapes and one 600 Watt/5 AMP electrical outlet for each booth space. Any electrical needs beyond the standard outlet will need to be coordinated through the electrical contractor and paid for by the exhibitor.

The Exhibitor shall:
- Pay balance of the total booth fee on or before the date it is due.
- Secure and maintain liability insurance, naming Clark Public Utilities and FSMG/Clark County Exhibition Center, their officers, agents and employees as additional insured, as will protect them from claims which may arise out of or result from the activities of the exhibitor. A certificate of insurance must be furnished to Event Management with final payment.
- Have booth completely set up the day before the event opens, man the booth for all hours of the event and not break down any part of the exhibit early.
Strict guidelines are followed when selecting commercial exhibitors for the fair. Exhibitors must have products or services directly related to the home or garden to be included in the show. This is one of several things that sets us apart from other home and garden shows in the area, and we believe it’s a requirement that makes the fair more enjoyable for the attendees.
Admission to the Home & Garden Idea Fair is free, so exhibitors will not need show passes. However, there is a $6 per car daily parking fee for each entry to the parking lot.
