Freeman Service Kit
Freeman is the General Service Contractor for the AAEP Trade Show. Please use this link to access the Service Kit. Please note: AAEP does not provide any furnishings or Electric with your booth. If you need any furnishings such as tables, chairs, carpet, electric, internet, etc. you will be able to order through the Freeman Service Kit. You can also arrange to ship your freight through Freeman.
Lead retrieval is now MORE THAN just lead collection. With eventBit on attendee badges, the reader or software you rent from Experient for lead retrieval will now capture near time aisle and booth traffic information. All of this new data will be aggregated in your exhibitor dashboard. As a reminder, you will only receive full contact information when you scan the attendee's badge.

Affiliate Space Request
Hospitality suites, special parties and other exhibitor-sponsored events will be allowed within the contracted hotels as long as they are social in nature or for the employees of the company (sales meetings). Hotel space may not be used for educational purposes, nor may any affiliate event conflict with scheduled AAEP programming. In order for the hotel to assign space, you must complete and return the Affiliate Request Form. All requests must be approved before hotels will assign space. Hotels will assign space on a first come, first serve basis.
