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.

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.

Online Exhibitor Listing

Exhibitors can customize their 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.
