TABLE TOP EXPO EXHIBITORS, PLEASE NOTE: KYRBA has implemented new pricing guidelines with a member and non-member rate for the Table Top Expo.  The member rate for an outside wall space is $275 and the non-member rate is $475. The member rate for an inside table top is $225 and the non-member rate is $425. KYRBA asks that at least one individual from your company be registered for the conference. Expo-only attendees may register for $125/person. ATTENTION: CHANGES TO KENTUCKY'S TAX LAW MEANS WE MUST COLLECT KY'S 6 PERCENT SALES TAX ON "TEMPORARY" RENTAL SPACES, WHICH INCLUDES TABLETOPS AND BOOTHS. YOUR INVOICE WILL REFLECT A 6 PERCENT SALES TAX ON YOUR TABLETOP PURCHASE.

Priority placement during the Table Top Expo will be given to premium associate members, then basic associate members over non-members that are displaying during the expo.   Tables are 3' x 6' and draped.  AC power and chairs provided on request at no additional cost. Exhibit hours are Thursday, May 25th, 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm. Set up will be in the afternoon; tear down at close of expo.

Tabletop Expo Rules

  • Room size limits the expo to approximately 48 tabletops. Inside tables will be set in pods of 4; outside tables along the walls.
  • Stand-alone backdrops and pop-ups are allowed only along an outside table.  Inside table-tops cannot have stand-alone backdrops, and table pop-ups cannot be higher than 36”.  We ask that you comply in order to accommodate the space within the conference room. Please limit displays to small pieces of equipment and literature.
  • Tables are 3' x 6' and draped. AC power and chairs provided on request at no additional cost. Contact the KYRBA Executive Director to make arrangements.
