Have a question about exhibit sales, exhibit hall hours, or exhibitor registration? We can help! Below we have answered some of the most Frequently Asked Questions about exhibiting at the SME Minnesota Conference.
Visit the interactive floorplan and click on the desired booth. You can hover your mouse over a sold gray booth to see who occupies it or click on it to see more details about the exhibitor. Click on an available blue booth and "click here" will display on the right side of the floorplan to begin the online space application process.
We have transitioned to a priority points system for the SME Minnesota Conference, based on the points you’ve accumulated in 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, 2019 and 2022. We’ll award points based on dollars spent on exhibits, sponsorships or advertising, on a one-for-one basis.(If you bought a $700 booth in 2019 you receive 700 points for toward your booth selection for 2023.)
The higher your points, the sooner you select your space. The points can only be applied to exhibit selections (so while you can get points for buying a sponsorship, you can only use those points when selecting your exhibit space) and are cumulative over time. To learn more about SME Minnesota Conference priority points, please visit Exhibiting & Sponsoring Priority Points.
