Exhibitor Prospectus and Booth Application
IMAPS 2013 is the largest symposium related to the microelectronics packaging industry in the world. IMAPS 2013 will feature a powerful technical program, a state-of-the-art exposition, progressive professional development courses, another informative Global Business Council Marketing Forum and many other events and activities to share the latest developments in microelectronics. We will hold this year's exhibition at the Rosen Centre HOTEL. Being in a smaller venue will allow us to negotiate more with the venue and our decorator to help keep costs down for you, the exhibitor!
The Annual IMAPS Symposium attracts approximately 1,200 attendees who represent all facets of the microelectronics and electronic packaging industries. These include: engineers, technicians, R&D, purchasing, manufacturing, management, and many more. They represent the automotive, communications, medical, aerospace, computer, defense, homeland security and consumer industries.
- Reach over 1,200 buyers and specifiers in one place
- Generate exposure in this highly competitive marketplace
- Launch new products and concepts to the market
- Enhance relationships with existing customers
Expanded Advertising and Public Relations Reach - IMAPS will expand the reach and frequency of its advertising over previous campaigns and will include advertisements or announcements in both print and electronic media. IMAPS will also implement a press relations campaign to motivate attendance from readers of all electronics industry periodicals, with more focused attention on editors from Packaging, Wireless, RF, Military Electronics and Medical Device trade press.

Failure to pay the balance by July 19, 2013, may result in reassignment of your booth location or cancellation of the contract.
What Comes With The Booth? In addition to the exhibit space that is provided by IMAPS as part of your exhibit reservation, you also receive the following with your booth: 8' high backdrape; 3' high siderail; and a booth ID sign. In each addition, each 10x10 booth is provided 1 "full symposium" badge (for sessions) and 2 booth badges with Wednesday Lunch included. Additional booth badges are $0 but those individuals would be responsible for their own lunch payment on Wednesday. Additional benefits of booth space are listed above.
Show Decorator (Shepard Exposition):
Exhibition hall is carpeted, so exhibitors do not need to order carpeting unless they prefer customer colors/styles. All other supplies and services can be ordered from the official show contractor, Shepard Exposition Services, at an additional rental fee. All exhibitors should review the Decorator's Exhibit Kit, that will outline all services available and prices for IMAPS 2013. This kit details all booth-related items such as shipping, freight, tables/chairs and other furniture, garbarge, cleaning, decorations, labor and more.

Shipping to Rosen Centre vs. Shepard ES:
Some exhibitors have considered shipping direct to the hotel with small boxes and crates. We've spoke with Rosen Centre Hotel directly on this option and wanted to alert our exhibitors to their input. The hotel directly has told us that their shipping charges "are significantly higher that Shepard". So we have loaded their shipping fees and information. The hotel has advised us not to recommend to exhibitors to consider shipping through the hotel. They cannot accept very large/heavy packages or crates, and their fees are quite high.
Lead Retrieval Rental (American Tradeshow Services):
Rental of leads retrieval units is optional. All exhibitors will receive a pre-show and post-show attendee list electronically in addition to any leads units rented. Rental information is enclosed in the American Tradeshow Serivces lead retrieval form. Early discount deadline: August 30..
Audio/Visual (a/v) Rentals (PSAV):
Rental of audio/visual equipment s is optional. Rental information is enclosed in the Audio/Visual Form.
Cancellation/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 cost of space at IMAPS 2014.
IMAPS reserves the right to refuse any potential exhibitor or advertiser should IMAPS deem the promotion of a company or organization inappropriate for any reason.
