We are excited to announce the launch of our Priority Point System for ICE USA. Beginning with ICE USA 2017 participation, exhibitors and sponsors will begin accumulating points for each show. This system rewards all exhibitors – regardless of size – for being involved with ICE USA year after year.
Booth selection for 2019 will be determined by the number of points earned in 2017. Companies with the highest point total will select first. If you would like to earn additional points for future shows, securing your exhibit space early and investing in one of the sponsorship or marketing programs are easy ways to earn additional points.
Below is a summary of the program; additional details will be provided when sales open in December, 2017.
HOW EXHIBITORS EARN PRIORITY POINTS

OTHER IMPORTANT INFORMATION
1. Determine which company submitted a signed contract first via date and/or time stamp.
2. Determine which company had the larger booth the prior exhibition.
3. Determine which company spent more on sponsorship in the prior exhibition.
Priority points are calculated using the 2017 exhibition data as the base points. Priority points will accumulate moving forward with all future ICE USA exhibitions.
Forfeiture of Priority Points
Skipping a year of exhibiting results in loss of accumulated points.
Mergers and Acquisitions
In the event companies merge or are acquired, the company with the highest priority points assumes the point total.
