Exhibitor Registration

Exhibitor Registration - Planned to Open Early September 2018

Do you work for an exhibiting company?  If you work for an exhibiting company and will need access to the exhibit hall during set-up, tear-down and before the hall opens each day, you must register using Exhibitor Registration. Do not also register using Attendee Registration, as duplicate badges will be deleted.  
 

Badge Allotments: 

  • Each company will be responsible for submitting the name(s) of the individual(s) to receive these allotments.

  • Each exhibiting company receives one (1) complimentary full registration (EXT) including online access to the Technical Digest and OFC Buyers’ Guide per 10’x10' space occupied.

  • There is no limit on Exhibit Personnel (EXP) badges—those badges are complimentary but only allow access to the exhibit floor.

    Exhibit Personnel wishing to register for technical sessions can do so when registering by making the necessary revisions to their exhibitor record online. The link to the Resource Center will be provided to each primary exhibitor contact who may then provide it to all registrants. 

Important notes:

1. If a company’s booth is cancelled for any reason, all free registrations will be cancelled.  This includes EXPs and EXT allotments.  If any of these personnel still plan to attend the conference, they must re-register as an attendee and pay any required fees. 

2. If a booth is cancelled for any reason, all paid technical upgrade registrations will be converted to full conference registrations, which will be subject to all standard registration policies.

3. Any outside contractor needing access to the hall during show hours must wear a badge or wristband. It is the exhibitor’s responsibility to obtain the badges. Register outside contractors as you would regular booth staff personnel through the Exhibitor Registration link.  Typically contractors are assisting with setup and tear-down, therefore an Exhibit Personnel (EXP) pass would be sufficient.
 

4. Exhibit Pass Plus registrants will not have early access to the halls each day. If a staff member will need access, register them as Exhibitor Booth Personnel (EXP).

5. Badges must be worn at all times to gain access to the Exhibit Hall.
 

Group Badge Pick-up:

During these appointments, exhibitors may pick up badges, badge holders, conference materials (if desired) and make changes and substitutions to exhibitor badges.  This is not an appointment to register all personnel.  Prior to the group pick-up appointment, all exhibitor badges MUST be entered into the registration system by the exhibitor. The Exhibitor Service Manual will have more information on Group Badge Pick-up listed.
