Where Are My  Tables?!

If you know your table code and how the show map is organized, click here:

Show Floor Plan Map(s)

But if you're not sure, then continue reading and use link at page bottom:

How to Find Your Tables - Know the Code

VENDOR CODE: Uniquely identifies YOU. On the show map and at the show itself, your tables are labeled with your code instead of a number which doesn't really mean anything.

LOCATION CODE: Tells you the approximate location of your tables to narrow your search to a particular area within a building. The code has 3 parts for the Cow Palace, and just 2 for the Exhibition Hall, as illustrated by the samples at right.

BUILDING: The left 2 letters. "CP" for the Cow Palace or "XH" for the Exhibition Hall.
SECTION: Designates a section within the building.
Cow Palace: North Hall (NH), Center Hall (CH) or South Hall (SH).
Exhibition Hall: all one section, no separate sections indicated.
AREA: On the map, the areas in the building within a section are identified by a large letter of the alphabet in the background, inside a dotted line boundary.
At right, you see a simplified appearance of a show map which illustrates how the location code resolves to an area on the map, and on the actual show floor. 

Vendor and location codes appear in the table at the bottom of this page. Following is a summary of the codes:

For the Cow Palace:

  • The building is designated as CP
  • The Sections are:
    SH (South Hall)
    CH (Center Hall)
    NH (North Hall)
  • The areas within sections are identified by letter A, B, C or D.

For the Exhibition Hall:

  • The building is designated as XH
  • There are NO sections
  • The areas within sections are identified by letter A or B, or by "LOB" (Lobby).

PINPOINT TABLES on the show map:
  • When the map appears in your browser, zoom out enough to include the entire map in your browser - even if the codes are not easy to see.
  • Open the "Find" dialog: Hold down the Ctrl key on your keyboard, then tap the letter "F," key, and then release both keys. A search box will open.
  • In the search box, type in your 3 letter vendor code, then press the Enter key. If the also shows vendor names, enter a string of characters from your trade name or last name. Then press the enter key.
  • If the the string of characters you entered is anywhere on the map, it will be highlighted.
  • If the highlighted material seems wrong, there may be duplicates of the text you entered. Keep tapping the return key to cycle through each occurrence.

Those who consult the map often will know their location before they even arrive at the show. Check-in and set-up times will, we hope, go more quickly and smoothly. Finally, the assignment of table locations will enable us to publish the long sought and often requested show directory - a boon to your customers who so often ask, "where is . . .?"
