EXHIBITOR/SELLER SPACE ASSIGNMENT – The method of determining space assignment is not an exact science. Official Sponsors and Partners of the UTV World Championship are given first choice of space, then we use the date of your signup and size needs to determine placement. There are no carry over rights from previous years or “reserved” spaces. We do our best each year to accommodate all requests and carefully place each exhibitor/seller in the best possible location. Remember – we are all guests of Lake Havasu City and as such we must conduct ourselves professionally at all times. Please help us by keeping your space clean, free from clutter, and lend a hand to your fellow exhibitors and sellers if necessary.
