MCIE Volunteers will check you in and direct you, by map, to your booth location.

Your name will be placed on the top of the booth in the exhibit area, or in the hallway on your Made in the I.E. Tables. We do our best to give top level sponsors the prime locations, and to create a good mixture of industries to improve exposure to vendors and create excitement for attendees.

The exhibit booths are 10’ x 10’ with pipe and drape, have a table, tablecloth, and two chairs.
