Marketplace Booth Information

Supplier / PR Supplier Booth Specs & Regulations

(CVBs, Destinations, Attractions, Accommodations, Restaurants)

All booths are 8’ x 10’ and include pipe and draping; side rails; identification sign; waste can; two chairs and a draped table. All booths will include carpet. Booths are assigned regionally on a first-come, first-serve basis.

Travel South USA is a "brochures only" Showcase. We strictly enforce no banners, backdrops, pop-ups, exhibits, posters, electrical, audio visuals or similar decorations from being permitted in the booth. No table-top displays or custom draperies (including table) may be used and will be cited for removal if in violation. You may bring a laptop computer or tablet. (Please note that electricity is not provided in the Supplier booths but can be obtained through the Convention Center. In most cases, laptops and tablets can be adequately charged during breaks and between Marketplace sessions so electricity is not essential in the booth.)


Travel Service Provider / Sponsor Booth Specs & Regulations

All booths are 10’ x 10’ and include pipe and draping; side rails; identification sign; waste can; two chairs and a draped table. All booths will include carpet.

Travel Service Providers may bring pop-ups, backdrops or table drapes provided these accessories fit into the allocated booth space. At an additional cost, electricity and internet is available through the Baton Rouge River Center. Booths are assigned on a first-come, first-serve basis.

Dress for the Showcase Marketplace floor is professional business attire. Comfortable shoes are a necessity! The attire for evening events is casual.


Weather

We're known for our warm weather and hospitality in Baton Rouge. Morning and evenings in March are typically cool and comfortable, with averages lows around 49°, then at the day's peak, temperatures can reach an average high of 71°. We encourage sunscreen and factoring in our humidity if enjoying the great outdoors of Baton Rouge. 

As your trip approaches, double check the weather in Baton Rouge in case of a spring shower or cool front our city sometimes sees this time of year. https://weather.com/weather/today/l/USLA0033:1:US
