Welcome Reception Tickets
This is a valuable tool that lets attendees know who you are.
You will want to update your online listing as soon as possible. Your online Show Directory Listing includes:
The Exhibitor Service Kit is your one stop guide to show and rules and regulations, shipping and move in information, and ordering carpet, furniture, etc. for your booth. You can also order Internet, Electricity and Lead Retrieval from here. The Kit will be live on the website approximately five months before the show. We will send out an email notifying exhibitors when the Kit is available.
Within the ESK you can find the booth approval form. The booth approval form is requested for all exhibitors to ensure that no enforcement of the booth rules and regulations is necessary onsite.
Shipping Information is available in the ESK.
Targeted Move-in Floor Plan will also be available soon.
We have two easy ways to invite your customers to WasteExpo!
Marketing and Sponsorships can add that little something extra to help you stand out from the crowd. We have a variety of options of all price points and ways to promote your brand.
Lead Retrieval — Investing in a badge scanner will help to keep track of sales leads and their contact info which will also save time and effort in the long run. You can order this through the Exhibitor Service Kit.
Badge/ID — Make sure that you have your badge and photo ID on you at all times.
Meals — Make sure you have water and snacks.
Need help onsite? — Know your Floor Manager and GES service Executive.
What is Boothmanship?
Simply put, Boothmanship is the way you conduct yourself when you are in your booth during show floor hours. It can go a long way in determining whether or not you have a successful show. It takes only 4 seconds to make a first impression on an attendee (good or bad) and you only have one chance to make a first impression!
Remember to be courteous, professional, make eye contact, and smile!
Tips for Booth Etiquette
Make sure that you follow up with your booth leads shortly after the show. This will help keep your product fresh in their mind, show that you want to do business, and get your leads into the next step of the sales process.
Evaluate the event based on your goals. What worked; what didn't?
Your Client Services Specialist is there to assist you with any logistical questions you may have about the show—including questions about the Exhibitor Service Kit, Booth Rules and Regulations, Badge Registration, etc.
