Exhibitor FAQs

Do booth purchases include event registrations?

No, event registrations must be purchased separately.

Can I exhibit only and not be a registrant?

No, you must be a registered attendee.

Do manufacturers need to have a booth/display?

Yes, manufacturers are required to purchase a booth at ISA24. This decision was made based on several key considerations.

The recommendation to require booths for manufacturers stems from the valuable feedback we have received from distributors, who play a pivotal role in the success of ISA24. Distributors have consistently highlighted the importance of having a physical presence for manufacturers. The booths provide a dedicated space for face-to-face interactions, in-depth conversations, and the opportunity to foster stronger business relationships.

Additionally, the decision to mandate booths for manufacturers was made with the overall experience of the ISA24 attendees in mind. This event is THE confluence of industry professionals, experts, and enthusiasts representing the full industrial supply channel. Having all manufacturers represented with booths enhances the quality and variety of offerings, making the event more informative and exciting for attendees. It ensures all product categories and company types of the industry are well-represented, which enriches the experience and fosters a sense of inclusivity.

Requiring manufacturers to purchase a booth at ISA24 is a strategic decision aimed at optimizing the value of the event for Manufacturers, IMRs and Distributors. It creates an environment that promotes collaboration, knowledge sharing, and the growth of our industry.
