It is critical that the invited registrant uses the email address that the invite was sent to in order to be recognized as part of a company’s exhibit and be recognized as Exhibitor Personnel. Exhibitor personnel who do not use the same email address that was used to initiate their registration will be registered as Industry Attendees and asked to pay the Exhibits Plus Pass fee and will not have access to the show floor during move-in or dismantle hours on-site.
