Important Lead Retrieval Notice
HD Expo ATTENDEE badges will no longer contain barcodes. They will have a QR code with limited data, but full data can be acquired online. If you use your own lead retrieval system, this will affect you. To access demographic data, you will need to purchase the Developer’s Kit Real Time Data Services (RTS).
If you rent scanning units through Experient, you will have new options to choose from, including an app for phone or tablets. Lead Retrieval Units may be rented from Experient using the link or form provided in the Official Service Provider Order Forms section of the HD Expo Exhibitor Kit (above). Onsite, lead retrieval units can be picked up and returned to the Lead Retrieval counters at the Exhibitor Service Center.

Misleading Advertising Scams
Fairguide by Construct Data Verlag AG and Expo-Guide by Commercial Online Manuals S de RL de CV are targeting HD Expo exhibitors with advertising scams.
Both companies offer advertising space on their website, using a form which resembles an organizer’s free catalogue listing service, inviting exhibitors to sign and return the form for an entry in an online directory. However, exhibitors who sign and return the form are then bound to a non-terminable agreement at significant cost for a period of at least three years and automatically renewing thereafter at the same cost, unless cancelled by registered letter within the appropriate period.
Please note that HD Expo has no relationship with Construct Data Verlag AG, Fair Guide, Expo-Guide, Commercial Online Manuals S de RL de CV or any of its many other brands, and they have no right to use the HD Expo show name and brand on information they send out to exhibitors.
If you receive a document from Construct Data Verlag AG or Expo-Guide by Commercial Online Manuals S de RL de CV which uses our name or the name of our events, and which offers advertising space on the Fair Guide website (http://www.fairguide.com/), please do not sign the form unless you have carefully read and understood the terms contained in the small print.
