Chistopher Rice 02/17/2017 4
In 2014 we conducted our first survey of electric fees charged at the larger trade show venues in the United States (see results of this survey here).

Not surprisingly, the cost of both electrical power and labor increased from their 2014 levels among nearly every venue surveyed (see 2017 survey below). Floor power alone is now averaging $157 per show for the lowest tier (typically 500 watts) ...

Why Shiny Stuff Sells and How Lighting Can Enhance This Phenomenon What do a diamond ring and a brand new car have in common? They’re both shiny and they’re both expensive.
