EXHIBITOR BADGES

All exhibitors need to display their badge on show days to gain admittance to the show floor. 

Exhibitors are given the minimum number of badges allotted to their booth automatically (see chart below)  with no form needing to be filled out. If the number of badges needed for your staff doesn't exceed the amount shown below, then simply have your staff check in at the Exhibitor Help Desk during or before the show to receive their badge.

Please note that badges do not display exhibitor or company names on them but there is space for your business card.

100 square feet=6 free badges
200 square feet=8 free badges
300 square feet=10 free badges
400 square feet=12 free badges
Each additional 100 square feet gets an additional 2 badges.

If you need more than the number of badges allotted to your booth, then please fill out the  Extra Exhibitor Badge Order Form before January 5, 2024 and we will have them ready for you at check in.

DO NOT LEAVE YOUR BADGES IN YOUR BOOTH as you need them to gain access to the show floor. Replacement badges are $10 each if lost, left at home, left in booth, a dog ate them etc.
