  2. An 8' background may extend from the booth backline one-third the depth of the booth. From that point to the aisle, the maximum height of any installation shall not exceed 44". Exhibitors building to these specifications must finish the back portion of the exhibit so that it will not be objectionable to adjacent exhibitors.
  3. No equipment, light trees or other objects may be placed outside the booth space.

*Exhibitors must submit plans for any special or unusual type of exhibit in advance to the CSBA exhibits manager to determine whether these plans comply with regulations or if the proposed variance is permissible.

No exhibitor shall assign, sublet or apportion his or her space(s) in whole or in part, nor exhibit any products or service other than those manufactured or handled in the normal course of his or her business.
