Electricity is not available at this expo. We close well before dark. Quiet Generators are allowed, such as the Honda EU 2000 or Harbor Freight Predator brand equivalent and similar equipment. Special Note #1: If you plan to use a small quiet generator, you cannot have it at your booth or near your booth and other booths surrounding you due to gas fume problems with your neighbors. Be prepared to bring at least 150 feet of extension cord. If you have to run your extension cord across a public walk-way, it will be your responsibility to bury the cord under the topsoil ground as to not pose a trip hazard. (Please choose an outside perimeter booth if this is needed). Special Note #2: Small personal quiet generators can only be on the north side, west side and east sides of the floor plan, noted on the floor plan. Generators cannot be placed anywhere else at the event. If you require electric be sure to select a booth that is near the north side of the floor plan to lessen the distance you need extension cords for on the ground.
WIFI is NOT available, you are in the middle of a field at a county fairgrounds.

Everyone must have their own pop up canopy tent. There is no color requirement. Your tent should look professional and in good working order. It must be sturdy enough to hold at least 35lbs of weight on each leg of the tent. Typical backyard, tailgating tents are not sturdy enough and often buckle and collapse with significant weight applied to them or any wind.
IMPORTANT* All tents MUST be weighted down after set up to withstand 40 MPH gusts, no exceptions. Tying to your neighbors’ tent to secure yours is not allowed. 1 Gal milk or water jugs are not allowed. An unsecured (No weights) tent is a potential liability if it flies away and hits an event goer or another exhibitor /vendor. Even if you stake in to the ground, or have metal grids, you must have sufficient weight on each tent leg to withstand 40 MPH gusts. It is recommended that you have at least 35lbs of weigh on each leg or suspended from each corner of the tent. We will be checking every single tent on Saturday morning to ensure all are secure with a weighting system. If yours is un-secure you will be asked to lower your tent until you can secure it with weights, please comply and thank you for adhering to this important tent safety matter. We are saying all this from experience, it’s not fun watching a tent roll through a crowd of people! Remember, you are responsible for what your tent does at an event, i.e injuring people or property. Latitude-88, Inc. assumes no responsibility for your tent causing injury or harm due to your negligence of not securing your tent in the manner discussed above.

We will be checking every tent on Friday and Saturday morning. If you do not have your tent weighted, you will be advised to go get them at a local store or break down your tent. NO REFUNDS will be given for unsecured tents that are told to break down.
IMPORTANT:* We encourage you to obtain vendor liability insurance for your products and equipment while at this event but it is not required. Note: Latitude-88, Inc. is not responsible for loss of vendor products or equipment and does not provide liability insurance to cover your products and equipment.
