How do I ensure I get what booth location I want?
When completing the exhibit contract make sure you indicate what booth numbers or area of the trade show floor you would like to be placed. The more information provided by the exhibitor the easier the job will be for the committee assigning booths. Also, please feel free to contact the proper committee member who represents your industry during the meeting.
What if I do not like the booth the Committee assigned me to?
As soon as you are assigned to the trade show floor you will receive a booth confirmation e-mail that will include a link to the floor plan, booth number, and booth move request form. Simply fill out the booth move request form or e-mail email@example.com with your new requested booth number. Please note - the meeting moves very quickly (over 650 exhibitors assigned over two days) so a delayed response will compromise any requests made.
