Badges for Expo West will not be mailed this year

In our newest greening efforts, we have four big initiatives in 2010:

  • We will not be printing Buyers' Guide book this year, instead we will print a much smaller Show Diretory Map. Visited our enhanced website and listings at
  • The New Product Buyer's Guide has been moved online! No longer will you find a printed version of it onsite.
  • We will no longer provide badge holders, those little plastic (actually ours were made of biodegradable corn) holders that you slide your badge and business cards into. So this year, you will just have your lanyard and your badge.
  • We will not be mailing badges this year! A huge initiative in terms of the perception, but I think attendees and exhibitors alike will find it an easy process, and no one has to worry to remember to bring their badge.

More on badges: last year we moved our central registration, show office, sales office and press room and Global Resource Center to the third floor ballroom of the Anaheim Convention Center. All those resources will be in the ballroom again in 2010, and we have expanded our registration area and made it even easier to register onsite, or to just pick up your badge.

You can also pick up badges in the lobbies of Hall A and Hall E. If you are an exhibitor, we will have registration available in the Halls B/C breezeway near the loading dock. This should make your move-in easy!

How can you make this transition for yourself the easiest? Pre-register today! Go to and your badge will be easily printed out for you when you arrive on site. After you register, visit the Online Buyer's Guide & Show Directory to create YOUR "Expo Plan" and map out the booths that you want to visit during the show.

We are here to help! Contact us at [email protected] or 1.866.458.4935 to speak with a customer service rep.

See you in Anaheim!
