If you are a supplier or service provider to the school industry and are not planning to exhibit, we ask you to respect the investment of time and money made by our exhibitors. No company that is a supplier, service provider, or original equipment manufacturer may attend the show or any aspect thereof unless exhibit space is contracted or a $1,600 member fee ($2,300 nonmember) is paid. Product/service demonstration or solicitation of business, including but not limited to literature distribution by non-exhibitors at the convention center or in any NSSEA-contracted hotel, is strictly prohibited. Show Management has the sole discretion and right to immediately remove violator(s) from the Convention Center and revoke show credentials from violator(s) without prior notice or hearing and bar any violator(s) from future shows.
Any outside press representative wishing access to the show must first check in with the NSSEA Registration Desk at the show in order to obtain a proper badge for access to the exhibit hall and other show events. Media registration privileges and credentials are limited to editors, reporters, and photographers. Credentials will NOT be extended to those in management, public affairs, public relations, or marketing. Publications wishing to sell advertising space or other services at NSSEA events to exhibitors or attendees must reserve exhibit space.
In order to run the most professional tradeshow possible, NSSEA contracts with Exposition Management, Inc. (EMI), to help manage the tradeshow and assist exhibitors with questions and problems. Exhibitors with any questions about space assignment, their booth, freight, security, installation/dismantle, or training sessions should contact NSSEA’s exhibit management staff: Joe Tucker and Christine Pauley 800-395-5550, option 5 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
NSSEA Point System
- Two (2) points for each year of continuous NSSEA membership since 1996.
- One (1) point for each year of exhibiting at the School Equipment Show within the past nine years.
- One (1) point for each equivalent paid 10' x 10' booth at the preceding School Equipment Show.
Assignment of Space
Following NSSEA’s Priority Point system, companies with the most points will be assigned first, followed by companies in decreasing order of points. Companies with equal points will be assigned in booth size order and, if equal size, then by date of receipt of contract with payment. Every effort will be made to keep competitive products separated. Companies whose preferences are not available during assignment will be assigned the closest available space to preferences listed on the application. No space will be confirmed without receipt of the entire booth fee and contract.
Show management will try to accommodate exhibitor requests to be assigned near or next to each other. If all companies within the group consent to being assigned space based on the company with the fewest points, then there will be a greater probability of accommo- dating the request. The integrity of the priority point system cannot be compromised so that individual companies with fewer points gain the higher points of another company. Show management must receive this request in writing from all parties involved prior to the assignment date.
NSSEA reserves the right to make a final determination of booth space in the best interest of the show. Exhibit space confirmations will be forwarded electronically to the contact listed on the application.
