You can order all these things and more directly through GES, our General Services Contractor. Stay tuned for ordering information April 2017. Please know that:
- Each 10'x10' booth will include one wastebasket and a simple identification sign. Two folding chairs per each 10’x10’ booth can be requested at the GES Desk on-site for no additional fee.
- You can use your own workers to load and unload your truck, move items in and out with non-motorized equipment, set up and dismantle your booth, etc.; however, you cannot use your own workers when motorized equipment – e.g., pallet jacks, forklifts, etc. – is required. If you require motorized equipment, then you must hire GES.
Metrocon, Inc. has partnered with Exceed Events LLC to offer both lead retrieval and digital marketing opportunities to improve your ROI during METROCON17. Stay tuned for ordering information April 2017.
We will also create a Marketing Toolkit with images and ideas to help you promote your presence at the show.
Lastly, be sure to enter the annual Pegasus Awards for Exhibitors. If your company wins, you will be listed on our Press page for an entire year. Not too shabby!
