Will the exhibit space sell out in August?
Yes, we usually receive more requests for space then what is available.  All of Tier 1,2,3 were processed into their booth space and 30

companies who were new exhibitors also got a booth.  Tier 4 is still being processed until all the space is taken.  We do not have enough

space for all the comanies in Tier 4 but we are working on getting more space.

Will everyone who applies in August get a booth space?
No, we usually run out of space for companies in Tier 4 and the "Wait List" begins.
