Welcome to your virtual exhibitor services kit! Here you will find all the resources you need to successfully manage your booth preparations including: Marketing and Technology Pavilion (MTP) rules and regulations, links to the interactive floor plan and Freeman Online, shipping labels and other downloadable order forms, etc.
To ensure a successful IPW, all Marketing and Technology Providers should carefully review the MTP Rules and Regulations.
The Marketing and Technology Pavilion (MTP) is located in the heart of the meal function room, offering hours of additional networking opportunities. There are a limited number of booths available, and authorized Brand USA co-op marketing partners will have priority registration and placement in the Marketing and Technology Pavilion.
- MTP Booth: 10’x10’ booth area which includes one table, two stools, white drape backdrop, carpet and booth ID floor decal. Opportunity for additional upgrades through Freeman (at exhibitors cost).
- MTP Express Booth: 5’x10’ booth area which includes one kiosk with graphics, two stools, white drape backdrop, carpet and booth ID floor decal.
Interactive Floor Plan
IPW's interactive floor plan allows viewers to zoom, pan the map, view exhibitor information, search for exhibitors and use the favorites feature. For helpful tips using the interactive floor plan, click on the menu button in the upper right on the interactive floor plan site and select "View Help."
Once posted, the interactive floor plan will be updated once a week to include new exhibitors or booth changes. Even though a booth may appear to be available on the floor plan it is possible that it has been assigned but not updated online yet.
Freeman is the official show contractor for IPW.
The MTP booth is a turnkey solution for marketing and technology providers. Freeman produces each booth and delivers and sets up the complimentary furniture package. 10’ x 10’ MTP exhibitors may bring or order small pop-up displays, computer monitors, floral or other decor items at their own expense. 5 ’x 10’ MTP Express exhibitors may bring brochures only.
Freeman will build out the MTP area on Saturday, September 18; MTP exhibitors can access their booths on Sunday, September 19, between 8:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m. if they wish to set up any additional displays or decor items.
Installation and Dismantling
Currently Freeman has an agreement with local labor for display installation and dismantling. Full time employees of the exhibiting companies, however, may set their own exhibits without assistance from this local. Any labor services that may be required beyond what your regular full time employees can provide, may be rendered by the local. Labor can be ordered in advance via Freeman Online or at the on-site service desk.
Exhibitors may hand-carry their own materials into the exhibit facility. The use or rental of dollies, flat trucks and other mechanical equipment, however, is not permitted. Freeman will control access to the loading docks in order to provide for a safe and orderly move-in/out. Only full time employees of the exhibiting company will be allowed to hand-carry items. Unloading or reloading at the dock of any and all contracted carriers will be handled by Freeman.
Freeman’s exhibitor services website contains complete information on upgraded carpet and furniture rental options, shipping, installation/labor, security, and booth accessories such as audio-visual components and computer equipment, display racks, floral arrangements, Internet and phone service, and electricity.
Any exhibitor services beyond the items specified in the furniture package listed in the MTP Sponsorship Letter of Agreement are at the exhibitors own expense. Please note each vendor's deadlines as they may vary.
Complimentary Furniture Package
Unless upgraded furniture and carpet rental options are purchased by the Marketing and Technology Pavilion (MTP) exhibitor through Freeman Online, Freeman will deliver the following complimentary furniture package to each standard MTP: standard carpet, two "Black Diamond" stools, and one 30" x 42" "Black Soho" table.
Express MTP exhibitors may not order upgraded furniture or carpet, and have only the kiosk and two "Black Diamond" stools—no table.
