Inviting Prospects and Customers to PACK EXPO East

Exhibitors, Want to know who used your code?  Track your leads here.

 

The Customer Invite Program (CIP) is a free and convenient resource that allows exhibitors to:

  • Offer customers and prospects complimentary registration. (Registration requirements apply.*)
  • Track who registers using your comp code so you can follow up with them.
  • Drive traffic to your booth and get more qualified leads.

Exhibitors:  If you have customers that are considered Non-Exhibiting Suppliers or Distributors and cannot use a comp code, you may purchase registrations on their behalf so that they will not have to pay the standard fees for admission.  If you are interested in this option, please contact the PMMI Show Department at [email protected] or 1-571-612-3200.

DIY Tools for Sharing Your Comp Code

Your company’s Show Contact is given a unique comp code that you can use to offer complimentary registration to customers and prospects* and invite them to the show. You can:

  1. Give the code directly to as many customers as you like. Your marketing and sales team can explain that the code waives the show registration fee.

  2. Use our Web Banner Tool to create customized banners. This tool generates graphics that include a built-in link to PACK EXPO East Registration —perfect for your website and e-marketing initiatives. Your customers simply click or tap on the image to claim free registration with your comp code.

  3. Print customized Comp Code Passes promoting your booth number and comp code. Your on-the-road sales teams can hand out these passes at customer visits.

  4. Use a pre-written message template to invite your guests.

    • Go to the COMP CODE Central tab on your registration profile to preview the message.
    • Individually enter your customers’ contact information.
    • Click “Invite My Guests.”

5.  **NEW** Share Your Comp Code via Social Media - Login to your favorite social media account and send invites and comp codes to the customers in your network. Then, we'll notify you when those customers subsequently come and register for PACK EXPO East.
