TRADE EXHIBITION BOOKING TERMS & CONDITIONS
We will do our best to accommodate your requirements, but there is always competition for sites, as some are perceived to be better than others. You can help us to allocate your preferred site(s) by giving three options, which should be positioned in different areas of the exhibition site. Also to assist us in maximising your marketing opportunities, please advise us of competitor companies on your booking application. We cannot guarantee that we will be able to avoid placement close to competitors but we will try to take this into consideration when allocating stands.
Stand sites will be provisionally allocated on a “first payment received” basis but the final allocations will take into account additional criteria including sponsorship of the 2018 Conference and Corporate Members. Note the organiser reserves the right, where circumstances dictate, to vary the stand allocation.
The Trade Exhibition Site Plan with allocated stands will be viewable on the EEA website by the end of March.
A 50% deposit payment must be paid within 7 days of the booking application to secure a trade exhibition stand. The deposit can be paid using the online credit card payment facility or by direct credit or cheque using the details on the invoice.
All exhibition and exhibitor registration fees paid by direct credit must be paid to the conference bank account on the invoice.
All fees must be paid by 20 April 2018. Exhibitors who have not made payment in full by this time will not be permitted to set up their stand.
Refunds will be made for cancellations received in writing within seven (7) days of our confirming your stand allocation. A cancellation notice received prior to Monday 2 April 2018 will incur a loss of deposit, however, no refunds will be made for cancellations received after this date.

EXHIBITOR LEAD MANAGEMENT
We are pleased to announce that for 2018, we have a new facility for lead management. This is a useful tool for exhibitors to manage leads they get at the conference and provides easy access for those back in the office to see what leads are coming through. A QR Code or Barcode is printed on the delegates nametag. When a delegate is visiting a booth, you would ask the delegate if you can capture their details by using the attendee app on your smartphone/device to scan their nametag. This then brings up the delegate's details, you can then pass your device to the delegate to answer some specific questions set up in advance. Once the questions are answered, an email can be sent to the delegate thanking them for visiting the stand and can include attachments with any company information/show deals. Colleagues back in the office can log in to the system and see the live data from people that have been visiting the stand and getting scanned. There will be a small fee of $100 to add this functionality to your exhibition experience. If you would like to take up this opportunity, you can indicate your interest during the stand registration booking. If you have any questions please give us a call (+64 4 384 1511) or email us at [email protected].
