Does your exhibit require an external power source?
To ensure you have adequate power onsite, it's essential we know the amount you need in advance.
To find the total amperage you require, find the amperage listing on the back of each piece of equipment you plan to use onsite and add up the amps from each item.

 - If you require a 208V or 240V circuit, explain your requirements in the comment box provided.
5 amp circuit (0-500 watts, 120V)
