That hardly seems fair to the paid exhibitors, much less ethical. It is really a moot subject in my case as the shows in my area don't give anything away!

look at it this way Tadpole,


Noone forced the paid exhibitors to get their spots, So if your business is desired by the people and the promoter wants you bad enough to offer a deal then whats the matter? There is a show at a local mall that gives all Landcapers 20 x20 spots for around a couple hundred( if not free), when everyone else pays that much for a 10x 10. A beautiful display is going to bring the crowds.....not a booth with a couple posters

I fully appreciate what you are saying. It still feels selective and discriminatory to me.
