2017 Show Sign-Up

Included in your exhibitor packet will be a 2017 show contract. Sign and return the contract to the Show Office by 5 pm on Wednesday, January 27 to reserve your current booth(s). If you do not return your contract, your booth(s) will be shown as available during the Priority Sign-Up(see below). If you are interested in changing booth(s), it is recommended that you return the contract to reserve your current booth(s), then make any changes during the Priority Sign-Up; this way your current booth(s) are not available to other exhibitors until you are sure of any changes.

Booth sign-up is based on priority: each exhibitor is placed into a priority group based on their first contiguous exhibition year. These groups are reflected on the Priority List, which will be posted in the Show Office (Room D101) and the Exhibitor Lounge (Room E101). On Thursday, January 28, Priority Sign-Up for the 2017 show will begin at 1 pm in the Show Office. Each exhibitor will have a chance to make booth changes when their priority group is called.

NAME BADGES:

Exhibitor Name Badge Order Form

Name badges will also be your parking pass for FREE PARKING in the Exhibitor Parking lot. Therefore, all exhibiting companies are encouraged to order name badges prior to the show and disseminate them to your representatives prior to their arrival at the show. This will help facilitate each exhibitor’s access to FREE PARKING in the Exhibitor Parking Lot. Please select, the ‘mail prior to show’ option on the Name Badge Form and be sure to include the correct mailing address.

Remember: Name Badge = Free Parking in the Exhibitor Lot.

We will still be able to make name badges on site, as usual. And we will also continue facilitate a Will Call area for name badges as well. However, planning ahead will help everything run smoothly at show time and make it much easier for your company representatives to park when they arrive.

Name badges are for employees/representatives of your company only. Each exhibitor will be given 10 guest passes to distribute to customers who you would like to invite to the show. If you would like more passes, please contact the show office.
