AUVSI 2022 exhibitors can choose from one of three booth space options: 

  1. Raw space
  2. Shell scheme booth
  3. Startup Xcelerator Turn-key Pod


Raw booth space is, as the name implies, an empty space you can fill with your booth furniture and equipment. 


Shell scheme booth is a furnished booth – without any of your company branding, visuals or demonstrations! – that includes: 

  • a hard wall system, 
  • header sign, 
  • standard carpet, 
  • track light with one head, 
  • 42″h returns/panels, 
  • counter with sliding doors, 
  • set up and removal, 
  • opening day cleaning, 
  • cafe table, 
  • four chairs, and 
  • a ten amp power outlet at the back wall. 


Startup Xcelerator Turn-key pods are smaller “pods” (roughly 42”W x 30”H graphic space), virtual exhibit space, and access to the pavilion’s themed learning sessions.  


Keep in mind: none of these exhibitor options come with branding or on-site troubleshooting! You will be responsible for all visuals, branding, demonstrations, etc. as well as troubleshooting any technical issues in your booth.

8 tips for building the best exhibition booth

With 500 exhibitors and a wide variety of information sessions, standing out from this impressive crowd might seem impossible but trust us: we know a few things about building the best exhibit booth! 


Here are 8 tips to build the best exhibition booth for AUVSI Xponential 2022:

  • Pick the focal point and product/service.
    1. Which of your products best fit attendees’ needs?
    2. Do you have any new products, services or technologies that offer solutions to the attendee? 
    3. How can you let attendees experience these new things?
    4. Design a marketing/content campaign around what’s relevant and what’s new. 
  1. Choose the right booth size for your message.
    1. 10’ x 10’: ideal for a single product or service, or a small line of products. You have room for multiple display cases, 3D graphic wall, custom light display and flooring, and one seating configuration.
    2. 10 x 20: good solution for those showing a variety of products in the booth. It has 20 feet of graphic back wall, multiple seating configurations for demonstrations and education, in addition to custom light and flooring that come standard with our exhibit rentals.
    3. 20 x 20: Exhibit Experience usually recommends 20’ x 20’ booths, as these offer demonstration space, enclosures for private viewing, and dozens of other configuration options. However, we understand that many companies have limited budgets this year.
  2. Decide if you will rent or DIY your booth.
    1. Experience is key when it comes to standing out at large-scale tradeshows. 
    2. Local tradeshow exhibit rentals for the upcoming AUVSI Xponential 2022 show will help you go that extra mile. 
  3. Design a memorable in-booth experience
    1. No matter the size, your booth should tell a seamless brand story. 
    2. Pro Tip: include an interactive experience for your booth visitors.
  4. Build and train the right team. 
    1. Having the right booth staff is just as important as having the right design. 
    2. Include a mix of people from sales, technical, customer service and management.
  5. Ditch the hard sell. 
    1. Instead of trying to get sales, focus instead on how your products or services solve a problem.
  6. Create an itinerary with the networking and social events, educational sessions, and other activities you want to attend. This way you and your team will know when you’ll be at the booth. 
  7. Follow up. Use the travel time home to send follow-up emails to thank visitors for their time and remind them about your company.
