In 2017 EDPA produced a Labor Rate Survey with Event Labor and material handing cost averages in over 40 North American cities.
The Labor Rate Survey tracks the advance order rates charged to corporate exhibitors in major U.S. and Canadian
cities. The rate sources are general service contractors, show producers and venue order forms.
The report is broken out in three sections:
•• U.S. Labor Rates by City
•• U.S. Labor Rate National Averages 2015 to 2017 Comparisons
•• Canadian Labor Rates by City
Methodology & Data Sources: The survey data provides averages from multiple events often in the main municipal
convention centers as well as large hotel event facilities. The data should not be seen as the rates changed only
in the main convention centers in each city. The primary data sources are convention and exhibition Exhibitor
Manuals and Rate Forms hosted on general service contractor websites. These manuals and forms have been
randomly accessed with a focus on leading events held in major convention centers, although some shows held in
hotel facilities have also be used.
