Exhibitor Check-In: Wristbands for ALL Exhibitors and Attendees

Every person working at your booth will need a wristband to enter the Exhibit floor. Wristbands will be available at the Registration Table starting at 7:00 AM on Friday.
To save time at the Registration Table, NCET strongly encourages Exhibitors to pre-register your entire group at Attendee and Exhibitor Registration

(If you encounter a webpage, which states “you are registered”, please click the “Next” button.)

Pre-registration closes at MIDNIGHT on Wednesday, September 24. After that time, registration is only available at the Registration Tables on Friday morning. Please bring a business card to expedite on-site registration.

Booth location and numbers are based on your registration date and will be assigned when you arrive.
Booths are 64 square feet (8’ deep X 8’ wide) and include “rod-and-drape” construction in the back and on the sides. The backdrop is 8′ tall and the sides are 3′ tall. You may hang lightweight signs or banners from the rod at the back of the booth.
The booth includes a 6′ x 2′ skirted table covered with a white plastic tablecloth, two chairs, a wastebasket, and a white paper sign with your company name. (You can view pictures of typical booth setups here.) To comply with fire regulations, nothing may be placed in, or extend into, the aisles.
Please bring any required fasteners or other hardware. If you need additional accessories (e.g. tables, chairs, lighting, linens, etc.), please contact John Shonnard at John.Shonnard@Freemanco.com or (775) 355-4600.
