FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
I am a new buyer, how do I register for the show?
You can register by clicking on the attend tab and selecting register from the drop down menu or click here. Once you’re on the buyer registration page, scroll down to the new buyers section and select the buyer pre-registration box. You must have one credential from the business identification section, one credential from the employment identification section and a photo ID. You will bring your credentials along with you to the show and check in at buyer registration upon arrival.
I am a returning buyer, how do I register for the show?
If you have attended the show within the past two years, there is no registration process. You will automatically receive your badge via email 2-3 weeks prior to the show. Each buyer must have a unique email as we are only able to send one badge per email address. If you haven’t received a badge, you can still print it off at buyer registration when you arrive or please contact Kelli at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you have not attended the show within the past two years, please see the above section to re-register as a new buyer.
How do I register a guest?
There is no registration process for guests. Each buyer is allowed two guests free of charge. Guests can get a guest badge at buyer registration and must be accompanied by a registered buyer at the show. The guest will just need a photo ID.
I am not a buyer, can I attend the show?
Unfortunately, our show is only open to credentialed buyers with retail stores and exhibitors who have a booth at the show. We do not allow the general public or non-retailers on the show floor.
