Exhibitor FAQ

Contact David Gesualdo at (727) 947-4027 or email [email protected] for booth availability. The most important thing is to COMPLETE A SPONSOR OR EXHIBITOR AGREEMENT with payment. This event will SELL OUT FAST, and we are unable to hold any space without a complete contract. You may also review the exhibit floorplan. For more information, please visit the Exhibitor Space Fees page.

Material handling, often referred to as drayage, is the movement of your freight from the carrier to your booth and then back to the carrier at the close of the event. Freight handling includes unloading your materials, storage at our warehouse for up to 30 days in advance of the event, delivery of the materials to your booth, the handling of empty containers to and from storage, and removal of your material from the booth for reloading onto your outbound carrier.

Yes. Material handling charges are computed based on the weight of your materials. The weight is rounded up to the closest hundred pounds (cwt.) and charged according to the rates published in your event service kit. Check your event schedule carefully to determine whether or not overtime charges may apply to your shipment.

For your convenience, Industry Summit recommends ELITeXPO. Representatives from this freight company will be on-site to assist you. Although as an exhibitor, you are free to use whatever carrier you like to transport your materials.

In most cases, an exhibitor may bring in what can be hand-carried in one trip without the use of the loading dock or hand trucks. Refer to the union jurisdictions in your service kit for specific information regarding your event.

YES – Badges will be required for all personnel in the conference area and to enter the exhibit hall during move-in, move-out and event hours. Badges must be worn at all times while in the exhibit hall. Exhibitor Badges will only be issued to those working in the booth. Those helping to set-up or teardown the booth will be given temporary worker badges – which will not be valid during event hours.

Exhibitors and sponsors can refer to their sponsorship agreement for their pass allotment or log-in to their custom registration portal to reference pass quantity.If you have used your allotment and require additional staff badges, or guest badges, you may purchase additional passes.

Industry Summit has set up on-line customized registration for your convenience!

Your log-in and password will be sent directly to the email address listed on your sponsorship or exhibitor agreement, and you can simply register your staff, make any changes, and keep track of your staff badges. If you prefer, you may fill out the manual registration form and fax to (817) 277-7616. The online registration link and manual form will be sent directly to the email address listed on your sponsorship or exhibitor agreement. If you need to make changes to your contact information please call (800) 576-8788.

You can pick up your badge on site, at the Industry Summit registration counter. You will be asked to show ID. For confirmation of your registration, you may call (817) 277-7187 or (800) 576-8788.

Payment is refundable if Industry Summit is notified in writing postmarked on or before the cancellation deadline date less a $300 processing fee. Cancellation policy applies to all exhibiting firms. Failure to appear at the exposition does not release the exhibitor from the responsibility for payment of the full cost of space rented.

Yes, exhibit personnel can transfer badges. But you must transfer the entire pass – it can not be broken up or transferred mid-event if the badge has already been picked up. You can either transfer the badge using your custom registration link, call (817) 277-7187, or inform the registration staff onsite.
