Lead Retrieval/ Attendee Lists

Important: It has come to our attention that fraudulent list companies have offered to sell ION conference attendee lists (both pre-conference and post-conference). Please be aware that these companies are not affiliated with the ION and we do not under any circumstances sell and/or rent our attendee lists. 

SmartSource is the official lead retrieval company for ION GNSS+ 2017.

Register Your Staff

With each 10' x 10' booth purchased, your company receives one complimentary full-conference registration, which includes access to technical sessions, the exhibit hall, and all conference meal functions. Additional persons from your company who are either planning on attending sessions, or only need access to the exhibit booth, will need to register for an appropriate pass.

  • Use the Complimentary Exhibitor Registration Form to register your complimentary attendee(s).
  • Use the online registration system to register additional Exhibit Hall Pass registrants who will only access the exhibit hall.
    • Exhibitor passes are $460 each (if they are staying at an official ION GNSS+ hotel); or $660 (if they are not staying at an ION GNSS+ hotel) and include all meal functions in the exhibit hall. 
    • Exhibitor passes do not provide access to the technical sessions.  If staff working your booth also want to attend sessions and listen to presentations, they will need a technical registration instead of an exhibitor pass (see below).
  • Use the online registration system to register additional full-conference registrants who will attend technical sessions. Exhibit staff who are registered for the technical meeting still have access to the exhibit hall and do not need a separate exhibitor pass; the technical meeting registration permits them access to the exhibit hall.

Why We Charge for Exhibit Hall Passes

The goal of show management is to provide our exhibitors with the maximum amount of unopposed exhibit time possible, to maximize face-to-face networking between our exhibitors and their customers. We do this by offering all of our meals and refreshments in the exhibit hall – you will find morning and afternoon coffee and snacks served exclusively in the exhibit hall, as well as a daily lunch buffet.  These meal functions are included in the cost of your exhibitor pass.

Expand Your Presence and Reach More Attendees

Online Exhibitor Listing

Exhibitors can customize their ION GNSS+ online exhibitor profile by uploading a logo, adding a company description, providing contact information to attendees, and even uploading electronic brochures. This information will be available to all attendees who visit the online exhibitor directory. You may edit your online exhibitor listing by logging into your ION web account, clicking on “My Account” and then clicking on the appropriate meeting listing under “My Exhibit Hall Profiles.” If you have not yet set up a web account, you will need to do that first.
