About a week prior to TSE 2018, you will receive an email with your assigned time for booth selection. Your booth selection time will depend on the number of priority points you have accumulated at TSE. The priority points are calculated based on your booth size, cash sponsorships and Special Events advertising, as well as the number of years you have been exhibiting at TSE.

In addition to paid Sponsorship Opportunities, there are several free promotional opportunities that will help you build traffic to your TSE 2018 booth and promote your company throughout the year. TSE offers three programs which allow you to easily invite your customers to your booth at TSE free of charge: The VIP Pass Program, The Invite a Customer Program, and the URL with Link to Free Guest Pass. For additional information about any or all of these programs, please contact sales@thespecialeventshow.com.

Your company’s exposure on the TSE Web page begins within days of signing your TSE Exhibit Contract. You will be emailed a unique login along with your invoice, your booth size, and cash sponsorship opportunities.

Use your login to update your exhibitor listing (link to exhibitor login), contact information and product categories. This will allow customers to find you and inquire about products even before the show! It is critical that you complete your company description by November 30, 2017. The official TSE printed Show Directory as well as the TSE 2018 Mobile Phone App reflects the company information that you have added to the TSE Web site.
