Third parties are event management firms, marketing firms or other organizations hired by an exhibiting company to handle exhibit details, logistics, publicity and advertising, etc.
Third parties cannot secure meeting space, promotional opportunities, etc. unless an exhibiting company has first submitted a signed Third Party Authorization Form, confirming permission for a specific third party to work on its behalf. This third party arrangement will not be considered when granting the extension of deadlines.
The Third Party Authorization form should not be submitted to designate contractors for labor, audio visual and other services for the booth as outlined in the Exhibitor Designated Contractor (EDC) section of the Exhibit Prospectus. A separate EDC Authorization form will be available in the Exhibitor Portal.
