10×20 Booth – Combine any two available 10×10 booths vertically. You’re unable to combine booths horizontally to create end-caps as it creates a line of sight issue.

10×30 Booth – Combine any three available 10×10 booths vertically.

20×20 Booth – We define an Island booth as a booth with aisles on all four sides. An Island Booth is a minimum 20×20 in size. We do not pre-plot island booths. Exhibitors are able to create their 20×20 booth by combining any 4 available 10×10 booths and we will remove the extra booths to create an island. We do not allow endcap or peninsula booths.

The exhibit hall hours will be released in spring 2020.

IRCE regularly attracts CEOs, business owners and executives from enterprise level retail businesses, brand marketing executives and leaders from the biggest names in the business (including Walmart, Amazon, Google, and Target). By co-locating IRCE with two other leading retail shows, RetailX is the one industry event that represents 95% of a company’s capital expenditure budget. That means you can expect to meet with even more C-level decision makers and larger teams than ever before.
