Exhibitor Badge Registration

Online exhibitor badge registration is open and allows exhibiting companies to:

  • Add names within their company’s allotment.
  • Make complimentary name changes/badge exchanges for badges previously submitted.
  • Review and print a list of registrants and badges picked up.

Exhibitors may register a maximum of five representatives for each 100 square feet of exhibit booth space. There will be no additional badges provided or sold over this allotment. Exhibitor badges are complimentary if registered by March 23.

Exhibitors may select from three methods of badge distribution:

  • By mail - U.S. addresses only
  • On-site pickup by designated contact who then distributes badges to their staff.
  • On-site express badge pickup by individual booth personnel by scanning their bar code.

NOTE: Children under the age of 16 are not allowed in the exhibit hall.
