In order to qualify to hang a sign, your booth must be 20' x 20' or larger and may not be a linear booth. You must complete the Hanging Sign Design Notification Form and submit a rendering or digital photo of the sign showing all graphics, placement above booth, and dimensions, including width, height and circumference. Hanging signs may be hung at any height; however, the sign itself can be no more than 8' in height from top to bottom and must be finished on all sides. Freeman is required to hang all hanging signs and it is recommended that you ship in advance to ensure the sign is assembled and hung in a timely matter. Please note that Freeman costs for hanging a sign are incurred at both installation and dismantle so budget accordingly.

Lead Retrieval or Lead Management is a system designed to help exhibitors quickly and easily capture and qualify leads on the show floor. Using lead retrieval enables you to qualify leads with follow-up action codes, eliminates hand-keying leads into your database for quicker lead follow-up and gives demographic information on attendees. CompuSystems offers an array of lead management systems – see http://www.compusystems.com/order for ordering and more information.
