Exhibitor Logistics

In addition to following the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidelines and all federal, state and local directives, the IAFC is continuing to review and implement thorough and up-to-date protocols in place for a safe and successful event this July. The initial floorplan was created with fewer connecting booths and providing every exhibitor with at least one corner for their booth. Additional information regarding local health department guidance will be available soon. Please contact if you wish further information on this variance to our standard FRI exhibiting rules
