Register Your Staff

All exhibit personnel working your booth will be required to be registered for the full technical meeting or to purchase an Exhibit Hall Pass Registration. As part of the exhibit package, each company receives one full complimentary registration for the complete technical meeting with each 10' x 10' booth purchased.

  • To register your complimentary attendee(s) email their name(s) to
  • Use the conference registration site to register those attendees that will only be staffing the booth. These attendees will receive all meals served in the exhibit hall, but no proceedings or access to technical sessions.
  • Use the conference registration site to register additional attendees that need access to technical sessions.

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 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.
