Hazardous Materials Response Conference

EXHIBITORS – Read the following information carefully and then start your registration at the bottom of this page.

The 29th Annual Midwest Hazardous Materials Response Conference will be held on May 5 & 6, 2017, at the Northbrook Hilton Hotel in Northbrook, Illinois. The Hilton is a Four Star property and the exhibit hall directly adjoins the main presentations. The Exhibit Hall will be open all day on Friday, May 5, 2017, and all breaks will be served in the exhibit hall to direct conference attendees to your booth.

Early registration is only $375.00 when paid before March 1, 2017 ($425.00 if received on or after March 1, 2017). The booth fee includes a 10’ carpeted booth, pipe & drape decorating, one skirted table with 2 chairs and electrical service. Crown Exposition Services will professionally decorate the Exhibit Hall with color coordinated 8’ high back and 3’ side drape. Complimentary wireless Internet access will be provided in the exhibit hall.

Be sure to download the Exhibitor Packet first so you can select your booth location. You must list three (3) booth preferences and all booths are assigned on a first come, first served basis.

Each paid indoor exhibitor can also reserve outdoor display space at no extra charge. Outside display space is also available without a booth. Please call us with the dimensions you require.

The booth fee also covers one exhibitor all day Friday, including lunch and the Friday evening Exhibitors’ Party.

Additional exhibitor badges are available at a cost of $35.00, but they must be purchased in advance after a full exhibitor registration. Additional exhibitor badges will NOT be available at the door. Each exhibitor must have an Exhibitor badge. No one will be permitted in the Exhibit Hall without a badge.

NOTE: The cost of additional exhibitor badges is kept low by not including meal tickets. The breaks all day are included and additional exhibitors can pay separately if they choose to eat lunch at the hotel.

The Exhibit Hall will be available for booth set–up at 6:30 AM on Friday. The Exhibit Hall opens to the conference attendees at 9:30 AM to coincide with the first break. Exhibitors may break down their booth after 4:00 PM before the Exhibitors’ Party begins at 5:00 PM, but all exhibitors are encouraged to stay and enjoy the fun. Center booths must break down at 4:30 PM to make room for extra tables in the Exhibit Hall.

The Exhibitors’ Party will conclude with a door prize drawing. Each exhibitor is required to donate one raffle prize. These raffle prizes do not have to be expensive and are intended to showcase your company and products. We can offer suggestions.

Sponsorships are also available for lunches, breaks and other events during the conference. These sponsorships are an extremely affordable way for your company to gain special recognition. Your company will be listed in the conference program, announced during the opening main program and recognized as an event sponsor with a custom sign posted at the conference.

This show is both affordable and convenient. It will provide a unique opportunity to meet hundreds of potential customers and every effort is made to give each exhibitor a worthwhile sales experience. All booth preferences are assigned in the order they are received.  Unfortunately, we cannot hold space so you must register immediately to reserve your booth.

HOTEL

A block of hotel rooms has been reserved at the special conference rate of only $107.00 per night for a single or double room until April 18, 2014, or until the group block is sold out, whichever comes first. The easiest way to reserve your room at the Northbrook Hilton Hotel is to use this link;

Exhibit Hall Floor Plan

Sponsored Conference Events Opportunities

Several special sponsorships are also available to showcase your company. The actual cost of each event is significantly more than the sponsor fee, but you receive full recognition and it helps to keep the registration fee at a reasonable price.
