BOOTH AWARDS & TIPS!

Each year, the Minneapolis Home + Remodeling Show awards five exhibitors, each in a different category, for standing out from their competition and peers. The categories for the booth awards are listed below, accompanied by the criteria our panel of judges look for when selecting the winning booth and company. We value all of the hard work our exhibitors put in to create their displays and design their spaces and award those who go above and beyond to put their best foot forward.

Best In ShowRegardless of size, this booth displays the most unique display and design of any other in the show.
Best in Show - 400 SF+
Best booth 400 square feet or larger
Best in Show-  200 SF+
Best Booth between 200 - 399 square feet
Best in Show - 100 SF+
Best Booth between 100 - 199 square feet
Rookie of the YearRegardless of size, this brand new company has taken the initiative to design their space in a manner that truly sets them apart from other new companies.

Things we look for:
• Meeting basic booth standards/expectations – height, signage, flooring, layout, etc 
• Full floor covering (no subfloor, concrete exposed) and quality of floor covering 
• Hard wall display (not mandatory but helps in the presentation of a professional display)
• Signage and signage quality
• No exposed studs or wiring (inside and outside booth)
• Paint and paint quality – taking the time to edge, tape seams, make the paint job look professional
• Wall quality – no visible damage
• Creativity and thought evident in booth design
