Overall flow and schedule and all that is hard to maintain when it's not
all in the same place.  People can bring "look but don't touch" signs or
guidance stanchions to place in front of their exhibits for times when no
one is present to guard the goodies.  Of course I never did this, but as a
veteran exhibitor it's frustrating that you can't really walk around as
much as you'd like, and you miss the things going on at the festival
