Not at all! You can enter the show at any time on any date, and as many times as you'd like.

What if I have forgotten my entry badge when I arrive to the show?

Please let one of our on-site staff know, and they can find your registration in our system and print off your badge.

Do you provide visitor invitation letters for visa applications?

It is against our company policy to issue visa request letters for visitors to our trade shows. Once you have registered via the website, you will receive a confirmation email which may be sufficient for visa applications.
