Exhibitor's Frequently Asked Questions

Dear Colleagues,

I put together this FAQ to assist you in your upcoming MAPLD 2005 exhibit.  Some of you are new to MAPLD and this will also help you exhibit effectively at our conference.  For exhibitors that have been at MAPLD in prior years, note that this is our third year in our new facility.  Some items here are TBD and I'll be filling them in the near term.

If you have any additional questions or need anything, please do not hesitate to ask. We are all here to help make your exhibit as effective as possible.   This list will be updated as new questions and suggestions come up.

See you in September!

* Do I Need To Register At Full Price?

Yes. Exhibitors, presenters, attendees must all register at the regular price. In fact, I as Conference Chairman also pay the same full price.   Seminars, the day prior to the conference, are separate rentals and a separate registration.


Everyone must register.


* Can I Update My Listing on the Industrial Exhibits Page?


* What Are The Shipping Instructions?

Shipping Instructions for the 2005 MAPLD International Conference

If you wish to ship material to MAPLD you must follow the instructions below exactly.   It's as easy as 1,2,3, ....  ;-)

  1. Your exhibit must arrive no later then August 31, 2005.
  2. Carefully mark all of your items.  Last year a few items came in and it wasn't clear who it came from.  That is bad.
  3. Please fill out the on-line form with information about your shipment.  I will send you the url for the form over the summer.  If you can not find the url, then just send me an e-mail and I'll send it to you again (putting the url on this page will result in false submissions from search engine crawlers).
  4. Address the shipment to:

    MAPLD c/o Pat Burns
    NASA Goddard Space Flight Center
    Receiving, Building 16W
    Greenbelt, MD 20771
  5. After the conference, please affix pre-paid shipping documents to each item and hand it to personnel at the registration desk and a list of all of your items.  The material will be returned to NASA Goddard Space Flight Center and then shipped out from there.  You can ship either back to your plant or on to another show and all major carriers are welcome.
  6. There will be NO handling charges for your exhibit.  However, you are responsible for packing your own exhibits well and for paying for shipping after the conference.


* When Is Setup and Teardown?


* Where are the Exhibits Located?

The Exhibits are located in the Atrium Hall.  It is a very nice facility, carpeted, with plenty of room.  It's also where the breaks will be served, with registration in the pre-function area.

You have been assigned a booth number when you made your reservation.  At the facility, a sign will be fixed to your display area to properly identify it.  A floor plan will also be posted; this will be done a week or so before the conference.


* What are the Exhibit Hours?

In general the Exhibits are open throughout the conference.


* What About Floor Protection?


* Can I Attach Displays To The Wall?

No.  NO.  NO!


* What About Electrical Loads?


* Can I Use Tape For My Exhibit?


* What Do I Get With My Exhibit?


* What Other Services Are Available?

The Reagan Building has lots of facilities, all of them of excellent quality.  The packages that I have put together should handle most exhibitors' needs.  However, each exhibitor has their own requirements and interests and we will work with you to customize your MAPLD exhibit.  We can offer you a wide range of services (basically at cost and keeping the single point of contact interface with MAPLD).  These services include those listed below.  If you want or need anything else, please let me know and I'll look into it for you and add it to this list.
