Who can use the FREE EXPO Pass?
Retail and law enforcement professionals can utilize the Free pass on Wednesday and Thursday, June 20-21, 2012 during regular show hours. A retailer by our definition is someone who sells to consumers via storefront, catalogue, TV or online. If you sell products or services to a retail company, we consider that business to business. And, individuals selling business to business are NOT considered retail.
Where/when can I pick up my badge?
An e-confirmation will be sent to you. Please print it and bring onsite to expedite your registration process. Your e-confirmation has a barcode which allows us to pull up your registration information more quickly onsite. Be prepared to show a business card and photo identification in order to pick up your badge and credentials. If you do not have your e-confirmation, proceed to Onsite Registration.
