If Kittens Ran Tradeshows and Events
11 Reasons Why Our Lives Would Be Better
Shows would last no longer than one (very intense) hour.
Two hour naps would follow.
We would play nice with others.
Unexpected freakouts would be OK.
Every booth would have toys.
Eating in the booth would be a "no no."
Being cute and adorable would be a given.
Experience would be respected.
Diversity would be embraced.
We would respect those who feed us (and our families).
AND . . . We would ALWAYS trust our instincts.
Feel free to add more! ;-)

varies depending on the packaging and the shipping method.
Variables include but are not limited to:
- Dimensional Weight vs. Actual Weight: Dimensional weight is defined as
crate or case size. On most air shipments, the dimensional weight exceeds the actual weight
- Portable Cases vs. Wood Crates or Molded Tubs (where applicable): Exhibit
designs that require one wood crate would require multiple portable cases. Selecting one vs.
the other affects the total weight (dimensional or actual).
- Freight Carrier: LTL carriers (Less than Truckload) quote freight based
on space used. UPS, FedEx, and air freight carriers quote freight based on either the
dimensional or the actual weight of the shipment.

Day Delivery to Two Week Delivery.
