Electricity is a must at any exhibitor booth. Exhibitors are not always familiar with the best way for them to order electricity, however. The new Industry Insights Series Report, Demystifying Electrical Services for the Exhibitor, published by the Center for Exhibition Industry Research (CEIR), hopes to resolve this problem. This report, which includes a step-by-step guide on how to determine how much electrical power is needed for a booth, how to lay out where to install power as well as other time and cost-saving tips and tricks, is an absolute must-read for new exhibitors who are looking to keep exhibiting expenses down. The report is updated by Immediate Past President of ESCA, Richard P. Curran, CEO and President of Expo Convention Contractors. This report was originally authored by Steven Hagstette, Sr., who has since retired from Freeman as Senior Vice President, Nevada Region. “The logistics of planning an exhibit booth are essential to do well,” said CEIR CEO Cathy Breden, CAE, CMP. “The devil is in the details. Thinking about what electrical power is needed for a booth and ordering it properly helps exhibitors save money and avoid headaches!”
