The WCAF Expo offers the option of a booth share, which allows two separate exhibitors to share one booth location. This option allows for two separate company listings in both the Expo Guide and online listing under the same booth number. There is a nominal fee for a booth share with a second exhibitor.

Any exhibitor can sponsor a class at The National Conference, the industry’s leading educational event. Sponsorship provides a unique opportunity to create visibility and reach targeted audiences through Conference marketing materials, signage, affiliation with framing experts, and product demonstrations. 
Booth setup is based upon size and location. A targeted move-in schedule will be published by Shepard Exposition Services and sent to each exhibitor as the Expo draws closer.
