We highly recommend that your ArchiPro profile is up to date. Our team is more than happy to help with any changes. Please get in contact with your Client Manager if you need assistance. 

5) Ticketing & accreditation 

During the evening you and your team will be required to wear a lanyard with your name badge attached. These lanyards identify you as a professional. 

  • The professional package includes 4 staff tickets

Within your exhibitor portal, you will be asked to fill in your staff names and details, which will generate the tickets.

Your tickets are meant for staff who can speak to the homeowners about your service. 

Upon arrival at the event, you and your staff can simply scan your tickets at the registration desk to receive a lanyard. 

6) Your exhibition space

Every professional exhibitor will receive:

  • 1 x black pod (1060W x 560D x 970H) with your logo in gold applied to the front

The exhibition floor must look impeccable in order to enhance and elevate the attendee experience. As a professional exhibitor, you are not required to bring in any collateral as all your work can be displayed on your ArchiPro profile through the computer screen. 

When you arrive, your pod and screen will already be set up, all you will have to do is open up your ArchiPro profile.

  • Single-page flyer with a discount or special offer that is beneficial to the attendee. No other flyers will be permitted.

No paper brochures, booklets, notebooks or catalogues will be permitted as they will make the bags too heavy.
