Reserving a booth for the HBA Home Show To reserve your booth, simply complete this vendor packet and return pages 6-9. You can log on to for a real time map of which booths are still available and where each company will be located. When filling out your contract or online registration, please list ALL products/services that you will be displaying in your booth. If you fail to list that product/service at the time you send in your contract, you will not be allowed to have that product/service shown or displayed in your booth because another company who has that product/service may be next to you. It is the intent of the HBA not to put you next your competitor. Our goal in 2016 is to have you at least 4 booths away from your competitor in the same row—some exceptions apply. This means that no remodeler can be next to a remodeler, a window company next to a window company, a cabinet company next to a cabinet company. However, an Exhibitor who supplies cabinets, windows, etc. to a remodeler can be next to the remodeler. Exceptions: If you have products and services that cross multiple businesses (i.e. roofing, windows, siding, painting) you may be placed next to a company that offers just painting.
