Sales & Solicitation Tables
I would like to know what you call your "sales & solicitation" tables on your campuses? (ie the areas you allow student groups to sell tickets, promote an event, or raise awareness of an issue, etc.)
Currently, in our facility, we called them Sales & Solicitation tables; however, while in the process of designing signs for these areas, we began to wonder if students would really know what that meant and if there was a better name to call this type of function/table. Students usually just ask for a "table" when reserving a space for this type of activity but I don't think that would make for a very good sign. : )
Any assistance you can provide would be greatly appreciated
We reserve tables in our main campus square for primarily organizational information. We have a Vendor's Row outside the main entrance to the Viking Union where we have four contracted local food vendors, and adjoining tables for bake sales, ticket sales, information, etc. for student orgs. You can find our "Sales of Goods and Services" Policy here:

We just call them booths or booth space. All booths have same set up - 1-8' table, 4 chairs, 1 easel if needed.
