Please speak to Shepard directly with questions or arrangements.

IMAPS does not hold, reserve, or set aside hotel rooms specifically for exhibitors or sponsors.  You must book your own rooms directly with the hotels by September 8th to receive the special IMAPS rate at the Marriott or Sheraton. You will find the booking link for each property BELOW.

Refer to the link provided in the exhibitor kit to register your exhibit booth personnel for their badges.  This NEW submission form is the ONLY appropriate registration link for booth personnel.  If you or your booth personnel are registering through the website for your badges, your registration type and associated benefits (such as access to the mobile app, lunch tickets, etc.) will be incorrect. All badge requests should be submitted before September 8. 

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 Tuesday and Wednesday Lunch included. Additional booth badges are $0 but those individuals would be responsible for their own lunch payment on Tuesday and Wednesday. Additional benefits of booth space are listed throughout this webpage.

Basic wireless internet access will be provided free of charge in the exhibit hall for exhibitor and attendee use.  However, if your setup requires a higher tier connection, you may purchase dedicated internet service for your booth through the form provided in the kit.

Unlike the most recent annual show locations, the Raleigh Convention Center Exhibit Hall is NOT carpetedYou will need to order carpet for your booth space.

No electrical power or outlets are included in your booth package. You will need to order power from the electrical service provider for any power needs, even if you just need access to one outlet.  To avoid setup delays and possibly higher charges on-site, IMAPS highly recommends ordering your electrical needs prior to the show. 

All service order forms should be sent directly to the service provider as instructed on the order form for processing.  Do not send any service order forms to IMAPS. 

All exhibitors will be listed in our final program exhibitor directory and the mobile app exhibitor directory.  Click here or navigate to to provide a ~200-word description and tag your company to relevant products/services in the directory by September 8. Only submissions received by that deadline will be included in the directory. 

IMAPS encourages submitting promotional slides for inclusion in the exhibitor slideshow.  These slides will loop on an oversized monitor outside of the session rooms during the event.  Submit 1-2 Powerpoint slides MAX inclusive of your advertisement, graphics, or messaging of your selection.  Submit these no later than September 8th directly to Brian Schieman at

IMAPS 2017 is successful when exhibitors have a successful experience.  Here are a few ways to promote your booth at our show to your customers:

    • IMAPS has provided a complimentary guest pass to promote your attendance at IMAPS 2016.  You will find that PDF pass available download.  Of courses, we always encourage guests to pre-register for their free show pass directly through the online registration portal, but feel free to email this PDF pass around to your customers, suppliers, prospects, colleagues and friends to promote your participation at the show!
