EXHIBIT HALL ONLY:
This is a registration category designed for the customers and clients of our exhibitors.

    • If you are staffing an exhibit booth, you must register through the EXHIBITOR registration to obtain the appropriate ribbon recognition.
    • If you have a companion wishing to visit the Exhibit Hall, please enter their name(s) on the appropriate lines within your own technical registration. They will automatically receive an Exhibit Hall badge.

    The Exhibit Hall will be open 9am to 5pm, Tuesday & Wednesday, and 9am to 1pm on Thursday.


    COMPANIONS:
    Our Companions are family and friends of all ages who are accompanying a registered, technical EMC or SIPI attendee.  We offer two types of badges:

      • Companion Club (includes gift, Companion Suite with breakfasts, Welcome Reception ticket, and access to the Exhibit Hall).  A fee applies.
      • Basic Badge (for Exhibit Hall entrance and Youth Technical Program registration).  No charge.

      You may sign up your companion for an Exhibit Hall badge within your own registration, or they may be registered separately for the Companion Club.

      You can pay for Companion Club Registration along with your own registration, or via a separate credit card.  If you need to pay for tours and social events separately, select "Check" as your payment method and then contact Registration Services at the number on your confirmation.
