SETTING UP YOUR BOOTH

Floor Plan: Floor plan sent two weeks prior to event. Please keep in mind that all printed materials go to the printer two weeks in advance. If a brand is added after that date they may not be included in printed materials.

Company Tickets: Each vendor is provided with a set number of tickets for their staff. It is the responsibility of the vendor to submit the associated ticket names TWO WEEKS prior to show for easy registration. All ticket names must include full name, title, company, and email for proper system entry. It is also the responsibility of the vendor to manage all staff passes. 

Discovery Lounge Maintenance: We publish professional photos after each summit designed to showcase your on-site brand presence and use our favorites in our marketing materials to give you extra exposure! Published images are typically selected based on how clean and organized they look, so please bear in mind: 

  • No water bottles / drinks containers on top of table
  • No jackets on chairs or visible around your stand
  • No litter
  • No personal devices on display

F&B Vendors: Please note that our venues do not offer prep kitchens, refrigeration on-site, nor ice, therefore all vendors must provide their own equipment inclusive of: refrigeration, freezers, conventional ovens, ice, coolers, etc. Open flames are not permitted.
