Custom Exhibit Space Lighting

Exhibitor Manual

Exhibit Space Lighting



For Emerald Plus, Ruby, and Pod level exhibitors, no action is necessary, as lighting is included as an exhibit package component.


For other levels, it is important to include ample lighting in your exhibit space design for conversation, demo displays, and to showcase your company’s brand. When creating a lighting plan, take into consideration that the show floor lighting is low because convention center “house” lighting will not be in use.

Note the following:

  • Lighting equipment must be located within your exhibit space and shine into the booth area only.
  • Lighting must not create a distraction to the conference or other exhibits.
  • Bright, flashing lights and the physical movement of lights are not permitted.


For Emerald level exhibitors, suspended lighting truss is not permitted.


For Sapphire, Onyx, and Diamond level exhibitors, suspended lighting truss is are permitted as follows:

  • The bottom chord of the truss must be 32' from the ground.
  • Truss must be black.
  • No signs, banners, audio visual screens, etc. may hang from the truss.
  • Please be sure to review the exhibit space policies [PDF].


Lighting options are available from Freeman, the Orange County Convention Center, or consider ordering a custom lighting plan.
