Does my sponsor/exhibitor booth come with electricity?

However, if you need electrical services, you may order directly through the St. Cloud River's Edge Convention Center. Orders need to be submitted by October 2. Total $ Accepted forms of payment for electrical service are cash, check (payable to River’s Edge Convention Center, 10 4th Avenue South, St. Cloud, MN 56301) or MasterCard, Visa or Discover credit cards.
