Indoor Exhibit Space Priority & Placement Process

Exhibitors reserving indoor hangar or exhibitor pavilion space, and making payments in full by the November 10, 2016, deadline, will be included in the priority draw. Exhibitors will be assigned to the appropriate priority category based on the criteria described below. During the priority draw, all exhibitors within each priority category will be randomly ordered and assigned appointment times to call into the exhibitor hotline. ABACE2016 sponsors within priority one and priority two will be assigned appointment times ahead of other exhibitors within their respective priority categories. During these calls, members of the ABACE exhibits team will discuss exhibit plans with exhibitors and will help them select their preferred exhibit location. Exhibitors who are unable to call in at their assigned appointment time can participate in their exhibit placement via proxy. Full details on the exhibit space placement process will be provided to qualifying exhibitors.

The ABACE2017 live, online exhibit space placements will take place December 22 to December 26, 2016.

Priority-One Exhibitors – Premium Placement

Includes all exhibitors who submit their applications with payments in full by the November 10, 2016, deadline and who select the premium placement option. Priority-one exhibitors will select their exhibit space prior to all other exhibitors. Premium placement exhibitors will receive 11 badges per 3m-by-3m exhibit space reserved.

Priority-Two Exhibitors

Includes all companies who submit payments and applications prior to the November 10, 2016, but do not select the premium placement option. Priority-two exhibitors will select exhibit space after all priority-one exhibitors have been placed.

Priority-Three Exhibitors – Payments after November 10, 2016

Priority-three exhibitors are those companies whose applications and/or payments in full are received after the November 10, 2016, deadline. Priority-three exhibitors will be assigned space once priority-one and priority-two exhibitors have been placed, space permitting. Priority-three exhibitors will be placed in the order in which their applications are received.
