This year we will have 2,365 sq feet available for Vendors & Exhibitors. This will be indoor air conditioned space as the festival coordinators have decided to place the talks in the smaller Greeen Room. This will allow vendors to conduct uninterrupted business while the talks & presentations are going on.
