Booth Administrator Role at NECANN & Your Exhibitor Portal


Thank you for exhibiting with NECANN! You are currently listed as your company’s Admin
contact. As such, you will be our main point of contact for all communication related to the show. You will receive the digital exhibitor manual from the show’s general services contractor, which will include info on booth package, shipping of materials and other services such as electrical and furniture/carpet rentals.

Once your order is confirmed, your admin person will receive an email invitation to access your online booth portal.

CREATE YOUR ONLINE BOOTH PROFILE
Once you accept the invitation to your exhibitor portal, you can set up a log-in and then you will have access to customize your listing on the interactive online exhibitor map, which includes space for a description of your organization/products, your company logo and contact information. Attendees use this information to plan their visit to the show and we encourage you to take advantage of this opportunity.
EXAMPLE:

WHAT ELSE CAN I DO IN OUR EXHIBITOR PORTAL?
• Learn about and reserve other marketing opportunities, such as online show program and digital advertising space.
• Make booth payments.
HOW DO I CHANGE OUR COMPANY ADMIN TO A DIFFERENT PERSON?
Though each company is only able to have one Admin, it’s easy to change who that person is. Simple send an email to Carolyn Weston, [email protected], requesting the link to change your admin. If you have any questions or need information, please contact Carolyn at 508-561-6243/[email protected] or Kris Hultgren, [email protected], 207-400-4446.

NECANN offers a lead retrieval service through the Captello app. This new platform offers the exhibitor the opportunity to customize the interaction with a lead to improve the experience and drive higher ROI at NECANN conventions. Lead retrieval service is optional and is priced at $195 for each different NECANN show in which you exhibit. However, no additional cost is necessary to share the lead retrieval license with your staff. Here are a couple of short videos providing more information about the service:

Video: Here’s a tutorial on how to buy the lead retrieval service

Here’s the link to purchase the lead retrieval service for Illinois: CLICK HERE

Once you purchase the lead retrieval service you are given the opportunity to watch short videos on ways to best use the service. If you have technical questions about the service, use the Captello support contact: [email protected].  You can always reach out to Kris at NECANN for help, too, at [email protected].

SCAM ALERT/FRAUDULENT SERVICES

In your online booth profile, the “Public Contact” fields are OPTIONAL, and we recommend that they be left blank until the week of the convention. If you have visible contact information in your profile in the weeks/months leading up to the convention, it WILL be used by scammers to bombard your email and phone number with phony offers to sell you attendee lists, hotel accommodations, shipping, etc. NECANN and our partners NEVER sell our contact information or make it available to 3rd parties. 

Any email or phone offer to sell you an attendee or exhibitor lists, hotel reservations, shipping services, etc. is a scam. If you have any doubts about the legitimacy of someone claiming to be a representative of NECANN, please contact NECANN’s Carolyn Weston at [email protected], 508-561-6243 or Kris Hultgren at [email protected] or 207-400-4446.
