Each year, the Vancouver Home Shows award four exhibitors, each in a different category, for standing out from their competition and peers. The categories for the booth awards are listed below, accompanied by the criteria our panel of judges look for when selecting the winning booth and company. We value all of the hard work our exhibitors put in to create their displays and design their spaces and award those who go above and beyond to put their best foot forward.
|Best In Show||Regardless of size, this booth displays the most unique display and design of any other in the show.|
|Best Large Space||Best booth 400 square feet or larger|
|Best Medium Space||Best Booth between 200 - 399 square feet|
|Best Small Space||Best Booth between 100 - 199 square feet|
Things we look for:
• Meeting basic booth standards/expectations – height, signage, flooring, layout, etc
• Full floor covering (no subfloor, concrete or terracover exposed) and quality of floor covering
• Hard wall display (not mandatory but helps in the presentation of a professional display)
• Signage and signage quality
• No exposed studs or wiring (inside and outside booth)
• Paint and paint quality – taking the time to edge, tape seams, make the paint job look professional
• Wall quality – no visible damage
• Creativity and thought evident in booth design
