Exhibitor Badge 

You will receive your unique link to request your exhibitor badge. The deadline to order your badge to be mailed is August 25, 2017. If you need your link sent to you please email tampacredentials@nmma.org.

The maximum number of badges is determined by the amount of square feet for which your company has contracted. If you have any questions please contact us at tampacredentials@nmma.org.

Replacement Badges are at a cost of $12.00 per credential.

New Admission Practice:

To enhance show security, anyone using an exhibitor or trade badge to access the show site will be required to present government-issued identification (ID) along with their badge. Checking IDs of persons entering the show with an exhibitor badge will ensure that only authorized personnel have access to the show outside of show hours and will protect our exhibitor’s products. We appreciate your cooperation with this new security protocol.

New “Be My Guest” system

The “Be My Guest” (BMG) ticket process has been upgraded and added to Expo Tracker. The new process allows exhibitors to create, design and manage their own tickets.

To make it easy to use, the new system is similar in design to the credential sites. As an exhibitor, you will have the ability to seamlessly order BMG tickets and register for credentials without logging into multiple sites.

The new site allows you to:

1.   Request e-ticket or hard stock tickets

2.   Customize your e-ticket at an additional cost

a.      Bold your Company Name

b.      Include a company logo 

c.       Add text to your e-ticket—25 words or less (i.e. Visit us in space A1)

d.      Add your brand logo to the footer 

e.      Attach a preferred e-ticket (Your company campaign/flyer, etc.)

3.   Upload a spreadsheet of your customer base and email in a few easy steps

a.      Email customers one at a time—whenever you want

4.   Order tickets for other NMMA Shows you are exhibiting in without logging out

5.   Switch to the registration site to order your badges without logging in/out of the site

What remains the same:

1.    Pay a $50.00 deposit via credit card and order as many tickets as you like

2.    Your credit card will be charged for the total redeemed tickets, less your deposit, within 30 days of the show’s    closing date. 

3.     Your tickets are 50% of general admission price; you are billed only for each ticket redeemed

New orders originating on-site will be charged a $50.00 deposit.  Tickets will be printed on hard ticket stock.
