The digital application only accepts credit card payments. If wanting to pay by company check or wire transfer, please download a PDF copy of the application. An application is not considered as received until the deposit has been received by CDS.
All cancellations must be made in writing. Cancellations occurring on or before Aug. 15 will result in refund of the booth balance, less the non-refundable deposit per cancelled booth or meeting room. Cancellations occurring after that date result in 100% of the booth fee being forfeited. For cancellations occurring by exhibitors, after this date, the booth balance, less the non-refundable deposit, will be refunded if cancelled within 14 days of being assigned booth space. Cancellations made after that time frame will result in 100% of the booth fee being forfeited.
The booth space is sold in a raw state. (No furnishings or utilities included.) Each exhibit may rent furniture through the general contractor or bring their own. All booths must have a floor covering. Floor coverings must be installed by 7 p.m. (CST) on Wednesday, Feb. 21. A non-refundable charge for carpeting will be forced on all exhibit booths, unless notified prior to Feb. 21, 2024, by the exhibitor that they are late or bringing their own floor covering. Carpeting may be rented through the general contractor. Complimentary WiFi will be provided in the hall. For dedicated WiFi or hardwired internet, contact McCormick Place through the online service kit to order those services.
Exhibitors will receive six complimentary badges per 10’ x 10’ booth purchased. Online registration begins Nov. 1. A unique email address for each person registered is required at the time of registration. All badges, unless otherwise noted, will be mailed to all exhibitors who pre-register their staff on or before Jan. 17. Any badge registered after that date can only be picked up onsite.
International exhibitors that require visas to travel to the United States can request invitation letters from CDS. These letters do not guarantee that visas will be approved but can be presented with your visa application process and may be required by the U.S. Consulate in some countries.
