To receive the greatest benefit, be sure to complete all of the information requested via the Exhibitor Console, from your company description and logo to your products, including photos. You can also upload brochures and provide links to your videos. Your booth space is highlighted green on the floorplan, but if you prefer to see your logo in your booth space, you can upload that in the “Wallpaper” section of your Exhibitor Console. 
  6. Use the Exhibitor Tool Kit- Use the graphics in this toolkit to highlight your participation in IMS2024 on your website as well as social media. This will help generate buzz and increase booth traffic. Learn More

Each 10X10 booth will be allotted 8 booth staff registrations for essential staff. Additional badges may also be ordered through the console. Exhibitor Registration will be accessed through the Exhibitor Console. Check out these helpful tips for registering!
  9. Review the Exhibitor Planning Guide- This guide can be found on the IMS Website. It includes all the planning and logistical information and forms you need for a successful exhibit experience at IMS.  It is your one stop guide for rules and regulations, shipping, move-in information, ordering carpet and furnishings, etc. for your booth. This guide is also available on the IMS website.
