Regarding Booth Space At PACK EXPO

The PACK EXPO booth space discount will apply to the upcoming show if the membership application is completed and  received by COB on June 30th.

Otherwise, the booth space discount and priority space selection will begin for the following year’s show. If your membership application is later denied by the Membership Committee or Board of Directors your PACK EXPO space rate will be recalculated at the non-member rate.

Trade Show Priority Policy

PMMI’s member priority program is a method of recognizing member companies that support PMMI shows by offering them priority in initial booth selection. Each PMMI show has its own priority classification.

PMMI will assign the same priority number to a member for a particular show so long as the member continues to exhibit at that show, though adjustments may result from other members being penalized for not exhibiting and from the sale, merger, or consolidation of members.

PMMI members that choose not to exhibit in a particular show will be penalized a designated number of positions as determined by PMMI. The maximum penalty for members at any given time is to remain at the end of the member priority list. Members not exhibiting for three or more consecutive shows will receive the maximum penalty.

Generally speaking, in the event of a sale, merger, or consolidation of a member company, PMMI will agree to reassign the show priority from that company to the surviving entity, provided that the surviving entity remains or becomes a PMMI member.

The member priority program is a loyalty incentive and booth selection mechanism. A priority is not an asset, and members have no property rights in a priority. Priorities may not be sold or transferred. As stated above, reassignment in the event of sale or similar corporate transaction is only by permission of PMMI. PMMI reserves the right to modify or terminate the priority program in its sole discretion.
