Grand National Expo
Booth Areas

Because such a wide variety of companies exhibit at Grand Nationals, BOA has designed two Expo Areas:

Premium Area Exhibitors
Are you looking for an exhibit area where you can have extended hours and a place where you can sell your product on the spot? Then the Premium Area is for you. This area is located in the largest portion of our exhibit area and includes longer hours so you can reach more potential buyers. Exhibitors must be located in the Premium Area in order to sell any items other than musical instruments and instrument-related equipment. Sales of apparel and novelty items can only occur in the Premium Area. As part of the Premium Area Exhibitor Package you will receive all the benefits of the Standard Area plus the following:
  • Five Name Badges which Provide Admission into the Stadium

Our Standard Booth placements are located at the East entrance of Lucas Oil Stadium and is the main spectator entrance to the building. Short on staff?
