Go to the Exhibitor Center on our website and follow the registration instructions to register your exhibitor booth staff. You will also be receiving a letter receive an email from Kristen Nicasio, your Exhibitor Coordinator, with specifics on how to register your company's booth staff.

Pass allotments are based on booth size. Only register the staff who will be working in your booth. Your staff will be required to show a photo ID to pick up their badges on site.

The quantity of Exhibitor Passes you receive is based on your booth size. For every 100 sq. ft. of booth space, you receive five (5) Booth Staff badges. For example, a company with a 10' x 10' booth would receive five (5) Booth Staff badges, a company with a 10' x 10' Meeting Room, would also receive 5 Booth Staff badges. For PODs and Tabletops the allocation is three (3) passes.

Please note that Exhibitor Passes are only for members of your team that need entrance to the show floor during non-show floor hours (to help with your booth set up & teardown).  If you have staff that do not need this type of access, please recommend they register for an Expo Pass as these are free and “unlimited” unlike your booth staff passes. 

Free Expo Passes grant access to the DesignCon Expo floor as well as to Keynotes, sponsored training sessions, the Opening Night Reception and Chiphead Theater sessions.  Expo Passes are recommended for members of your staff that will not need access to your booth outside of Expo hours and to clients/partners you would like to invite to visit your booth

Exhibitor Passes allow your booth staff access to the show floor to set up your exhibit space during non-show floor hours. Exhibitor Badges should NOT be given to customers, clients or partners (Expo or Conference Passes are more appropriate).  Exhibitor Passes also include access to the same event features as the Expo Pass.

The deadline to pre-register your booth staff is Wednesday, January 23, by 5:00pm Pacific Time.
Yes, as an exhibitor you will automatically receive one (1) complimentary All Access Conference Pass. You do not need to pre-register for the conference pass.
