You can purchase the post-show list beginning March 13.

For New Exhibitors – Booth Evaluation
IFPE Show Management is providing exhibiting companies, new to the 2017 show, with a complimentary exhibiting evaluation. The purpose is to reinforce areas of effectiveness and identify potential areas that can be improved so your company gets more value and increased results. Sometime between March 7 - 10, during open exhibit hours, a trade show expert will visit your booth and score the overall effectiveness of your exhibit in three areas: 1) Exhibit Presentation, 2) Product/Service Presentation, and 3) Exhibit Staff. They will not need to interrupt your booth activities during this process; however, the evaluator will take photos of your booth, which are only be used in the confidential report you receive after the show.
Shortly after the show, your company will receive a personalized report by email. Your report is confidential and will include scores of the 21 evaluation questions, photographs and comments the evaluator made. It assigns overall area scores, spotlights areas of ineffectiveness, compares your scores to the average score by size and to all exhibitors evaluated. You can learn how to improve any areas scoring below average by clicking through to an online Post-show Resource Report. If you have any questions about this complimentary service, please contact Mary Bukovic at email@example.com.

Key Show Rules to Know!
There are two key show rules to remember as you set up and tear down to avoid additional costs to your budget. They are the Clean Floor Policy and the Early Tear Down.
Clean Floor Policy
- Sunday, March 5 at 5:00 p.m.: All crates must be labeled "EMPTY" for removal. Crates not labeled "EMPTY" at this time will be removed regardless of status.
- Monday, March 6 at 1:00 p.m.: All cardboard, fiber cases, or access storage items must be labeled and ready for removal.
- Monday, March 6 at 5:00 p.m.: AISLES must be 100% clean of any items that may impede the final aisle clean up and installation of aisle carpet.
Early Tear Down
Any exhibitor who begins to dismantle or pack part of their exhibit before the close of the Exhibition will lose their priority number in the next Exhibition and will be charged a $10.00 per square foot penalty. The charge will be based on the exhibitor’s total exhibit size.
Still need to make a reservation? Have changes to make? Visit our website for the latest information on how to do so.
Badge Pack Increase
All exhibit staff must purchase a Badge-Pack. Make sure to purchase these before you get to the show to avoid a price increase on March 7.
Badge-Packs will not be mailed in advance. Badge-Packs can be picked up throughout Las Vegas and at the show. Individuals picking up badges are required to present their ID and have their confirmation email (hard copy or digital). Learn More
If you are picking up badges for a group, make sure to communicate this to your team. Badge reprints will be charged the original amount paid. All registrants are required to provide an ID to pick up badges. View Policies
