BOOTH TYPES, CONFIGURATIONS, AND LIMITATIONS
There are two types of booths in the thematic village and six configurations of that space. NFCYM places limitations are the number of booths exhibitors may rent.

Configurations of Space
There are six configurations of booth spaces:
Linear Booths: Linear booths have only one side exposed to an aisle and are arranged in a series along a straight line, and back to other exhibit booths.
Corner Booths: Corner booths are linear booths exposed to aisles on two sides.
Perimeter Booths: Perimeter booths are linear booths that back to an outside wall of the exhibit hall rather than other exhibits.
End Cap Booths: End Cap booths are exposed to aisles on three sides and composed of two booths. (Not available in the Market Place.)
Peninsula Booths: Peninsula booths are exposed to aisles on three sides and composed of four (or more) booths. (Not available in the Market Place.)
Island Booths: Island booths are composed of a minimum of six booths (two of which may need to be used to create an additional aisle) and are exposed to aisles on all four sides. To create an island an exhibitor may have to purchase additional space which cannot be used for display. (Major sponsors of NFCYM events receive priority registration for island booths. A limited number of island booths are available.)
