MPE Exhibit/Product Acceptability Standards For 2024 (USA)


As we enter a highly volatile political environment in advance of the 2024 General Election, Marketplace Events (MPE) wants to make clear its position on what content will not be permitted on its exhibit floors in all its US consumer home and holiday shows effective January 1, 2024. MPE shows are welcoming environments built solely to encourage face-to-face commerce.  Creating respectful, safe marketplaces where our attendees and exhibitors can come together to learn, shop, compare pricing and do business together is our highest priority.

MPE’s acceptability standards do not permit political candidates, parties or other groups promoting issues or ballot initiatives to participate as exhibitors. In addition, the display or sale of any products or services that are political/partisan in nature or that can be interpreted to promote, incite, or glorify hatred, violence, racial, sexual, or religious intolerance are prohibited.  MPE’s judgment in applying these standards will be final.

MPE maintains these policies to ensure a welcoming environment for all attendees and exhibitors.  


There have been a number of spam emails offering our attendee lists. These are scams and the senders are unauthorized to use the Marketplace Events’ name. These scammers are attempting to receive monies from exhibiting companies without providing anything in return. These emails are not approved by Marketplace Events, and Marketplace Events would never ask for bank information or other sensitive information over email.  

CLICK HERE for more information.


As per our privacy policy, Marketplace Events is a permission-based email sender. We do not share, rent, or sell any email lists. 

NEW FOR 2024!   If you plan to drive into the I-X Center for move-in and/or move-out, please note that everyone is required to purchase a “Drive-In Pass” from the I-X Center.  One pass per vehicle.  You may purchase a round-trip pass for $50 (½ used for move-in and ½ used for move-out) or a one way passes for $35.  Please see page 5 of this I-X Center Services Ordering Guide.  If you do not wish to incur this additional cost, you may use 4-wheeled carts to transport your display to your booth.
