You're right on the pricing. These days my shows are a little more country small town shows but in downtown Detroit or at the big Novi Mi. show it's like you say for 10 x 10.
The thing about home shows is sometimes they are in the semi off season, or early season when mailers are too early.
Most of the real successful green industry home show exhibitors are the landscapers and hardscapers with big ticket items and killer displays.
