    The size was 10x20. I paid $795 for the booth. $300 for the sign, which was a waste, that sign sucks esp for 300. $150 for the granite. $20 for mulch. and thats it for the most part. Now if you want to get real into it- It took 2 of my guys 6 hours to put it up, 2 hours to take it down, my staying there, gas getting there, lunch for 3 days, and about 1500 business cards. so in the end i spent around $1700.

    Looks nice. How did the show work out for you?

    BTW, next time you need a sign or anyone else for that matter, let me know. One of my best friends owns a sign company and is alot cheaper than most of the prices that I have heard of on here. check him out at longwoodsignworks.com

    Did you glue your blocks on the free standing wall? We don't glue wall blocks for our show exhibits and I always worry about liability issues with someone leaning too hard on them.
