What are the height limits for exhibit displays?

Display height limits are:
  1. 10×10 & 20×10 exhibit displays = 8 feet (2.4 meters) tall
  2. 20×20 peninsula/island displays = 12 feet (3.7 meters) tall
All displays, no matter the height, must meet our Safety, Fire, Environment, and Health policies outlined below (as detailed in the Exhibitor Contract), and be deemed safe by Management, OCC, Fern Expo, and/or any other governing body deemed appropriate by Management.

Safety, Fire, Environment, and Health: 

The Exhibitor must strictly observe and assumes all responsibility for compliance with all applicable local, city and state safety, fire, environmental, and health laws, regulations and ordinances and guidelines regarding installation and operation of equipment, displays, and exhibit materials.

Displays must be safely erected and constructed. If displays are considered to be unsafe by Management, OCC, Fern Exposition & Event Services LLC, the Fire Marshall, or any other governing body deemed appropriate by Management, in their sole discretion, then Exhibitor is responsible for all expenses necessary to re-erect and/or re-construct and/or reconfigure their display to ensure it is safe.

Display materials must be flame-retardant. Flammable substances are not permitted in the building or anywhere on the OCC’s premises and hazardous materials of any type are prohibited. See the OCC’s Terms of Service for complete information on “Fire Marshall’s Rules” and other terms and conditions governing the permitted activities of Exhibitors at the OCC. Exhibitors should dispose of any waste products they generate during the exhibition in accordance with guidelines established by the Environmental Protection Agency and the OCC. See the OCC Sustainability Guide for helpful tips and directions on recycling, composting, and donating leftover goods once the event concludes; ideas for reducing waste; and options for alternative and sustainable signage.
