about icon Registration Frequently Asked Questions

Registration

1
What is my organization number and/or password?

Organization login codes are a 5-digit org ID and an alpha-numeric password used when submitting your initial online registration. You will generally access the online registration site through “Register Now” links on ipw.com and in promotional emails.

If you have attended IPW in the past, you should have received an email with your organization number and password for use when registering online. If you forgot your login codes or did not receive them, complete the Login Code Request form.

2
What is my individual number and/or password?

Individual login codes are a 7-digit individual ID and an alpha-numeric password (different from the organization password) used to access the My IPW portal (and the mobile app).

The individual ID number is your 5-digit company number (e.g., 12345) followed by a period and 1-2 additional digits, e.g. 12345.12.

Note: Only delegates registered for the current year’s trade show will have access to the My IPW portal.

Once registered for IPW, delegates can access the My IPW portal using their individual login codes to prepare for IPW. Sample actions include: Find Delegates, Create Prospect List, Update Organization Profile, View Invoices/Print Receipts, Assign Shared Booth Partner Delegates, and Make Registration Changes/Additions. Note: Actions vary by registration category.

Can I purchase a Day Pass?

Yes, we offer day passes to registered booth-holding companies (not shared booth partners). You can purchase these one-day registrations in the online shopping cart. Note: an individual may only be registered with a single one-day registration; if an individual is registered more than once using multiple one-day registration packages, the registrations will be cancelled and the individual re-registered as an Exhibitor Delegate. A revised invoice will be issued for the difference owed on the full access registration.
