Booth space assignments will begin in March 2019. Space will be assigned to all IA members whose booth space contracts were received on or before Feb. 28, 2019, with assignment order determined by the priority point system.
Where possible, location preferences — including requests for placement near or away from other exhibitors — will be accommodated for those companies that met the Feb. 28 deadline. IA-member booth requests received after Feb. 28 will be assigned on a first-come, first-served basis until all booth space is sold.
Nonmember booth space will be assigned on a first-come, first-served basis after all member assignments have been made. IA reserves the right to relocate an exhibitor’s booth space due to facility changes, fire marshal regulations or any other reason in the best interest of the overall show.
Priority Point System
Booth space for IA-member exhibitors is assigned based on the priority point system, with assignment order determined by each company’s point total.
The priority point system rewards your company for support of the Irrigation Association. The greater your support, the more points you earn. The points your company earns each year are accumulated and applied toward your assignment order for the following year’s show.
To reward returning exhibitors for their loyalty, companies also receive one point for each year they exhibited at the show since 2000. Exhibitors that miss one to three consecutive years lose a percentage of their accumulated points; those that miss four consecutive years must begin accumulating points from scratch.
How to Earn Points
Priority points for booth assignment at the 2019 Irrigation Show will be calculated by adding points accumulated during previous years to those earned for member activities through Feb. 28, 2019. Activities that qualify to earn 2019 priority points include
- IA membership.
- Sponsorships at the Irrigation Show.
- Advertising in the 2019 Irrigation Show Guide.
- Booth space rental at the Irrigation Show.
- Point assignment and transfer.
- Advertising in Irrigation Today and Irrigation & Green Industry.
Priority points earned for these activities are outlined in the box below. Sponsorships and booth space rental at the 2019 Irrigation Show, as well as advertising in the 2019 Irrigation Show Guide, will earn points toward your company’s total for the 2020 Irrigation Show.
