IMAPS 2005 Exhibits – Good for Your Bottom Line!

The Annual IMAPS Symposium has not been in Philadelphia since 1997; those of you who participated that year can attest to the successful 1997 Symposium. We will not be back to the East Coast until 2008, so this is the last opportunity for several years to avail your company of the lucrative industry located in the Eastern US.

IMAPS 2005 exhibiting companies will have the opportunity to impact the largest gathering of microelectronics and electronic packaging customers in one location this year. Come and showcase your new products and services to this highly competitive market, and network to enhance your relationships with existing customers. IMAPS 2005 Exhibitors will also have preference in choosing their booths for IMAPS 2006 in San Diego.

Exhibit Space Assignment - NEW CRITERIA!

Booth selection/assignment for IMAPS 2005 will actually occur in two phases: first selection will occur onsite in Long Beach, IMAPS 2004. All exhibitors at IMAPS 2004 will therefore have a high priority selection for IMAPS 2005. This booth selection will be limited to IMAPS 2004 exhibitors only. All other companies not exhibiting at Long Beach but wishing to exhibit at IMAPS 2005 will be assigned in early-2005, as detailed below.

Space will be assigned on a point system that will be based on the date this application is received and how long your company has been an Organizational/Corporate member of IMAPS. It is important to get your booth reservation form in early.

A 50% deposit is due with the booth application. The balance will be due on May 15, 2005. Exhibitors will be mailed an invoice following space assignment indicating the balance due. Failure to pay the balance by June 13, 2005, will result in reassignment of your booth location or cancellation of the contract.

Exhibitors at IMAPS 2005 will have priority in booth selection for IMAPS 2006, San Diego. The first-round of IMAPS 2006 booth selection will be held at IMAPS 2005 and will be limited to IMAPS 2005 exhibitors only.

Any other booth requirements such as tables, carpeting, chairs, etc., can be ordered from the appropriate show contractor at an additional rental fee. All exhibitors will receive an Exhibitor's Manual that will outline all services available for IMAPS 2005.

Cancellation of Space

Refunds, minus a $100 processing fee, will be made for booth cancellations only if the Exhibit Hall sells out and if the cancellation is made at least 30 days in advance of the Symposium start date. If the Exhibit Hall does not sell out, the full amount of the booth fee will be due to IMAPS. However any monies paid, in excess of the 50% deposit, will be applied against the
