What is the cost per square foot to exhibit?
The base rate is $28 per square foot. PMMI member space rates vary. If you are a PMMI Member and would like to know your space rate, please call 571-612-3200.

See the PACK EXPO Las Vegas/Healthcare Packaging EXPO Rules & Regulations and the Exhibitor Services Manual (available in May 2017) for additional information and special assessment pricing.

What is drayage?

Drayage is the moving of the exhibitor’s machinery, etc., off the exhibitor’s truck at the dock to the exhibitor’s booth and back to the dock to be loaded back onto the truck. This is included in the price of the exhibitor’s booth space.

How can I improve my priority point standing?
Each exhibitor is assigned a priority point for space selection. PACK EXPO Las Vegas, PACK EXPO International, PACK EXPO East, ProFood Tech and Healthcare Packaging EXPO hold separate priority standings. If you exhibit consecutively (exhibit every time PACK EXPO Las Vegas takes place), and someone ahead of you in priority does not exhibit/misses a show, you can begin to move up the priority point system. Choosing not to exhibit at PACK EXPO International or PACK EXPO East does not affect your PACK EXPO Las Vegas priority.

What are the height regulations?
Booths that are less than 1,500 square feet have a maximum 12’ height restriction, booths 1,500 square feet and over have a maximum 18’ height restriction. Setback and line-of-sight rules apply. For more information, please consult the complete Rules & Regulations.
