BACK FOR 2018!

Capturing Attendee Leads: (iLeads app)

Again this year, our exhibit hall is providing you with the I Leads Badge Scanning service FREE OF CHARGE. Here are some important details for getting the most out of this service:

  • We will be using the same app as last year, called iLeads from Bartizan Connects
  • New this year, we will have an ONSITE tech support representative from Bartizan Connects to help you optimize your experience
  • The main contact(s) designated for your booth when you registered will receive IMPORTANT SETUP INFORMATION prior to the show. You must have that information in order to successfully set up and use your app at the show.
  • You can download the iLeads app on your smart device anytime prior to the show.
  • To utilize the app you will be asked to comply with the agreement clause and you will be asked for an Access Code specific to your company
  • App Technical support: Come and see our onsite iLeads representative at the exhibit hall help desk at the back of the hall OR call tech support: 914-375-7994 once the greeting starts to play, press 4 and you will be connected to a representative.
  • You will choose your booth prize winner using the scanned list of names on your app on Tuesday at 12:30. You will be responsible for contacting the winner, we will not be making announcements for booth prize winners.
  • After the show, download your complete report of contacts collected by all of your booth representatives into one convenient report.

Exhibitor Drop Off:

You can drop off your materials and set up your booth on Sunday or Monday.

Sunday: 5:00 - 7:30 p.m. -- Set up. Garage Doors Open
Sunday check-in closes at 7:15 p.m. Everyone must exit the exhibit hall by 7:30 p.m.
Monday: 6:30 - 8:00 a.m. -- Set up. Garage Doors Open
Monday: 8:00 - 10:00 a.m. -- Set up. Garage Doors Closed. Must use side door. No exceptions.

Upon arrival, proceed to the on-site HR Exhibit Hall Registration desk located inside the Exhibit Hall near the rear dock doors. Our team will be there to greet you and direct you to your booth.

DROP OFF OPTION A: The Convention Center has a loading dock just behind the hall that will allow for easy unloading and transport of your materials to your booth. Volunteers will be waiting at the unloading area to assist you with unloading your materials. If you use this dock you must drop off your materials as quickly as possible and then go park your vehicle. We do not have sufficient space in the dock area for people to park for any extended period of time. Note that there is only one way into this area from West St.

DROP OFF OPTION B: For those of you that do not need assistance there is an alternate drop off location you can use. On the Missouri Street side of the Convention Center there is a pull off. You will have a bit of a walk to the hall from this drive but it will be closer than any of your parking options. There is not sufficient space for people to park here for any extended period of time so again we ask that you unload quickly and park your vehicle before taking time to setup your booth.


Parking:

There are lots of options for parking at and around the Indiana Convention Center. The hall is near the corner of West St and Missouri, just across from Victory Field. If you aren't familiar with the area we encourage you to arrive early and plan ahead. As is always the case with downtown events, we expect parking to be at a premium. Keep in mind that you can access the Convention Center using the skywalks from various other buildings, including the mall.

Exhibitor Tear Down:

All exhibitor booths are required to stay open from 11:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. on Monday and 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. on Tuesday with tear down from 1:00 - 2:00 p.m. This ensures that our attendees have the opportunity to talk with each of you and obtain your materials to make an informed decision about your services.

Please tear down on Tuesday between 1:00 and 2:00 p.m.

Exhibitor Packet from Excel Decorators and Booth Assignments:

The exhibitor packet from Excel Decorators, Inc. will be sent to you. Excel Decorators is the company that organizes the booths within the exhibit hall. If you have not received your email packet by August 1, 2018, please contact us at exhibitors@indianashrm.org.

We reserve the right to make changes in order to accommodate the many exhibitors who have registered this year for the HR Indiana Exhibit Hall. Upon arrival at the Exhibit Hall in the Indiana Convention Center, we will confirm your booth at the on-site HR Indiana Exhibit Hall Registration located in the rear of the exhibit hall. We will work closely with our official decorators and the Indiana Convention Center to ensure your set up needs are met.

The furnishings provided in each booth include a carpet, 6 foot draped table, two chairs, signage, a wastebasket and electricity. If you require a longer table or need additional furnishings, you may order these items through the exhibitor service kit.

Shipping Instructions:

Specific shipping instructions are included in the exhibitor kit from Excel Decorators. Please make sure to follow these instructions when sending your booth and related materials to Excel. Please plan to have packages arrive no later than 4:00 pm on Friday, August 17, 2018. Please make sure that you follow these shipping instructions carefully since neither The Indiana Convention Center, Excel Decorators, nor the Indiana SHRM State Council will be held responsible for your booth and its contents.

Do not ship to the JW Marriott! They will refuse your shipment.
