You must pre-register in order to take advantage of any early discount rates. If you register after September 23, 2016 you will be charged the regular rate. See the registration page for pricing.

1. I am interested in exhibiting at the event what do I need to do?

The most important thing is to COMPLETE A SPACE CONTRACT with payment. This show will SELL OUT FAST, and we are unable to hold any space without a complete contract. You may also review the exhibit floorplan. Once we receive your contract, we will call you to discuss your space selection. Space is assigned on a first-come first-served basis in the order contracts are received.

For more information, please visit the Exhibitor Page or call Joni Owens at (310) 533-2530.

2. What exactly is material handling?

Material handling, often referred to as drayage, is the movement of your freight from the carrier to your booth and then back to the carrier at the close of the show. Freight handling includes unloading your materials, storage at our warehouse for up to 30 days in advance of the show, delivery of the materials to your booth, the handling of empty containers to and from storage, and removal of your material from the booth for reloading onto your outbound carrier.

3. Is there a charge for material handling?

Yes. Material handling charges are computed based on the weight of your materials. The weight is rounded up to the closest hundred pounds (cwt.) and charged according to the rates published in your show service kit. Check your show schedule carefully to determine whether or not overtime charges may apply to your shipment.

You can find more information on material handling on the Exhibitor Service Kit page.

4. What are my choices for freight carriers?

For your convenience, the Fleet Technology Expo recommends ELITeXPO. Representatives from this freight company will be on-site to assist you. Although as an exhibitor, you are free to use whatever carrier you like to transport your materials.

5. Can I carry my own materials in without using the freight handling service?

In most cases, an exhibitor may bring in what can be hand-carried in one trip without the use of the loading dock or hand trucks. Refer to the union jurisdictions in your service kit for specific information regarding your show.

6. I am an exhibitor do I need to register myself and my staff?

YES - Badges will be required for all personnel to enter the exhibit area during move-in, move-out and show hours. Badges must be worn at all times while in the exhibit hall. Exhibitor Badges will only be issued to those working in the booth. Those helping to set-up or to teardown the booth will be given temporary worker badges – which will not be valid during show hours.

You can find exhibitor registration instructions on the Exhibit Service Kit page.

7. How many passes do I get with my booth?

Allotment breakdown is as follows:

Each 10x10 booth comes with two complimentary registrations. Sponsors can refer to their sponsorship agreement for additional passes.  Both exhibitors and sponsors can also login to their custom registration page to reference pass quantity.

If you have used your allotment and require additional staff badges, or guest badges, you may purchase those passes at for $495.00 per person.

8. How do I register?

The Fleet Technology Expo has set-up on-line customized registration for your convenience!

Your log-in and password, will be sent directly to your contact in a separate email, you can simply register your staff, make any changes, and keep track of your staff badges. If you prefer you may fill out the manual registration form and fax to (817) 277-7616. The online registration link and manual form can be found on the Service Kit page.

Generally, your login is the contact email provided on your space contract and your password is the zip code.

9. Where do I get my badge?

You can pick up your badge onsite at FTX, at the registration counter. For confirmation of your registration you may call (817) 277-7187 or (800) 576-8788.

10. I signed up for an exhibit booth space and need to cancel. Can I get a refund?

Payment is refundable if the Fleet Technology Expo is notified in writing postmarked on or before July 22, 2016 less a $500 processing fee. Cancellation policy applies to all exhibiting firms. Failure to appear at the exposition does not release the exhibitor from the responsibility for payment of the full cost of space rented.

11. Can I transfer my badge to someone else?

Yes, exhibit personal can transfer badges. But you must transfer the entire pass - it cannot be broken up or transferred mid-show if the badge has already been picked up. You can either transfer the badge using your custom registration link (coming soon), call (817) 277-7187, or inform the registration staff onsite.

12. What do I need to bring to the conference?

You must provide a business card and identification on-site for admittance into the conference. We recommend you bring a stack of business cards and a list of your goals.
