These badges will be added to you existing account, managed by the exhibit primary contact. Please work with your colleague to ensure you have badges necessary for your speaker(s) and staff. Additional badges can be purchased for $50 each.
Wireless scanners are available to track attendee information as attendees enter your symposia.

Each company will receive one complimentary wireless scanner and may contract to rent additional scanners. Each company is required to complete and return the Lead Retrieval Order Form to confirm your first complimentary lead scanner, regardless of whether or not you plan to contract additional scanners.
If using scanners for your event, you must pick them up at the Exhibitor Services Center located in the back of the Learning Hall in the Convention Center. After your event is completed, you must return the scanner to the Exhibitor Services Center. Within seven business days of the event closing, Maritz will provide an MS Excel File for your event. The file will contain basic attendee information from everyone who was scanned while entering your event.
