As the name suggests, a Multi-Story Exhibit is a booth where the display fixture includes two or more levels. In many cities, a Multi-Story Exhibit requires prior approval by the exhibit facility, and/or relevant local government agency, as well as show management. Why? Because a booth of this type is deemed to be a “structure” for building purposes.
City building departments generally need to issue a building permit based on an application and drawings prepared and submitted by a licensed architect or engineer. Exhibitors should obtain local building regulations early on to ensure that all time constraints are met. Look to your venue/exhibition organizer to assist in this application process.
