The Breakin' It Down Conference exhibit area is where BID participants gather to meet one another and can meet you.  The BID Conference offers limited exhibit space for those interested in solely exhibiting without conference sponsorship options. Exhibit space is assigned upon completed and paid registration. Floor assignments are made on a first-come, first-served basis. We do take table location preferences into consideration, but we can not guarantee placement.
