Exhibit Spaces

All exhibitors enjoy access to the “Exhibitor Oasis” hospitality area and Exhibitor Office. We celebrate your participation with an invitation to attend the annual Exhibitor Breakfast. SUN ’n FUN also provides exhibitors with official web and print graphics for use in promoting your exhibitor booth location at the event.

Each exhibit space also includes appropriate staff credentials and access to a restricted vendor parking area. The same parking pass also allows direct access to the exhibit areas for loading/unloading of supplies before 9 a.m. and after 5 p.m. daily (except Sunday, closing day) when vehicle access is permitted at 6:00 p.m. ( est.)

Priority is given to aviation-related exhibitors in order to keep the focus of the event and attract a highly interested, motivated audience ready to do business with our exhibitors.

Exhibitor services – tents, furniture, shipping, labor, etc. – are provided by GES Exposition Services. Tents Vendor will be provided at a later date.
