First Time Exhibitors

Information for First-Time Exhibitors

Welcome! Our goal is for you to have a successful experience exhibiting at PACK EXPO International or Healthcare Packaging EXPO. To help you get started, we have compiled some topline information for you here.

Exhibitor-Dashboard.jpgThe Exhibitor Dashboard gives you access to all booth-planning information, including your exhibitor directory listing (company profile).

The online exhibitor directory listing is your first point of contact with attendees and will be a determining factor in their decision to add your booth to their show agenda. To stand out, you should make your listing as compelling as possible and full of pertinent information. Remember that this is your opportunity to reach 40+ vertical markets, so speak to the needs of as many markets as your company can serve.

To sign into the dashboard, you will need your Exhibitor ID and password, which are provided to your company’s Show Contact in weekly Exhibitor Update emails.

Log in to your account to:

  • Upload your company description
  • List the vertical markets you serve
  • List your product categories
  • Promote in-booth educational offerings
  • Register booth personnel
  • Access the Exhibitor Services Manual
  • Upload your latest product/press releases

Please email [email protected] with login questions.

  • Electric

Exhibiting companies receive one free exhibitor badge per 75 square feet of contracted space, and additional badges are $5 per badge until October 9. Afterward, the rate goes up to $15 per additional badge.

Badges are mailed via US mail by default to domestic registrants. International exhibitors must select a mailing method or plan to pick up the badges on-site at the Exhibitor Registration areas.
