Booth Assignment Policy
Exhibit space will be assigned by the Exhibits Manager starting October 1.
You will receive your booth assignment no earlier than November 1.
Assignment will be made according to the exhibitor’s priority points, based on the following four factors:
- The number of years the entity has exhibited (1 point per year).
- The number of booths requested for the upcoming convention (5 points per booth).
- The contract submit date for the upcoming convention, based on the Central Time Zone database timestamp (a maximum of 30 points for applications submitted on or before September 7. After that, points decrease one per day [i.e., a September 8 submission receives 29 points, and so on]).
- Amount spent on Sponsorships and/or Partnerships contracted by October 1 (1 point per $250 spent).
Applications received after January 1, will be honored on a first-come, first-served basis.
Show Management will make every effort to place exhibitors together ONLY if both exhibitors make this request AND the point system justifies it.
Exhibitor-requested changes in booth assignments may be made only with the approval of each exhibitor involved and the TMEA Exhibits Manager.
