It really depends on how many people are in your class. Normally middle, and lightheavy are packed with guys. It also dependes on the judges and what they will like to see. Me as a heavyweight been on stage probably 20 minutes tops. I have been in shows that guys been on stage for 45 minutes or longer. Just call a promoter of your next show and ask him how many guys in your class, that should give you a better idea.

It also depends what class you enter (i.e. teenage, over 40, open, etc.). Usually, the special categories go on earlier in the show, starting with the senior classes (over 50, over 40, etc.), then the teenagers, then the novice, then the open classes. If you are in one of the specialty classes, you could be gone in an hour (unless you wanted to hang around to watch the rest of the show).
As jperez said, how long you are actually onstage depends on the size of your class. If there are about 6 or less people in a class, the judges can pretty much shift you around and have you offstage in 15 minutes or so. But if there are 10-15 or more in a class, the judges will have to split the lineup into groups and call various people out to compare to each other. This can take much longer (45 minutes is probably about max for a large class).
