Exhibitor Kit

Exhibitor Badges

A unique link will be sent to all contracted exhibitors in a separate e-mail to order show badges. Please do not share your link with anyone.

The deadline to order badges online that are to be mailed is December 21, 2018.

The maximum number of badges issued is determined by the total amount of square feet of exhibit space your company has under contract. Additional/Replacement Badges will be available at a cost of $15.00 per badge.

Badges will be mailed when your contracted space balance is paid in full.

If you have any questions please contact us at atlantacredentials@nmma.org or (866) 668-0105.


New Badge Design

Our team has been working hard on a show badge redesign! Our design team has given them a fresh, modern look. Badges are part of our Boat Show’s everyday life and the first interaction with our customers. They will now include show specific information for you – the exhibitor.

What’s new –

  1. Size of badge 4x6
  2. Lanyards – to replace badge holders
  3. Show specific exhibitor information included on back

Reminder—Enhanced Security Protocol

Anyone using an exhibitor badge to enter the show site will be required to present government-issued identification (ID) along with their badge. This will enhance show security and:

  • Ensure only authorized personnel have access to the show outside of show hours
  • Protect exhibitor’s products and displays

We appreciate your cooperation with this security protocol.


New Admission Practice

To enhance show security, anyone using an exhibitor badge to access the show site will be required to present government-issued identification (ID) along with their badge. Checking IDs of persons entering the show with an exhibitor badge will ensure that only authorized personnel have access to the show outside of show hours and will protect our exhibitor’s products. We appreciate your cooperation with this new security protocol. All Exhibitor and NMMA Trade badges will be scanned upon entry to the show on show days.

NEW Reimagined WILL CALL process on show site

We have updated and are implementing a new WILL CALL system this year for hard stock tickets. The new system will help both you and your customer have a better show experience.

Once we go live you will receive a link to order Exhibitor Credentials and Be My Guest Tickets.

  • You will have two options for hard stock tickets.
    • Option 1 – Hard stock tickets mailed to you in advance.
      • If you choose to have your hard stock tickets mailed to you we will not be responsible for distribution. We are no longer accepting tickets in envelopes.
    • Option 2 - Will Call Tickets
      • Will Call tickets will NOT be mailed to you. You will be prompted to type in the first and last name of your customer, email is optional. If you include an email address your customer will receive an email stating you have left tickets for them at WILL CALL and the quantity.
  • A mobile version for this site will be provided for use on mobile devices and tablets. The mobile version will be each page of the Will Call system optimized for use on your device (phone or tablet). When users navigate to the system from a phone, the pages will automatically adjust to the mobile friendly version.
  • Guests will arrive at WILL CALL onsite at the event, provide their name, an ID and which company left them the tickets. We will print the ticket(s) on demand to provide to your customer.
  • No more illegible handwritten envelopes of multiple sizes etc.

These new processes will help by

  • Faster moving lines – no need to have counters in alpha order.
  • You will be able to easily see who or who has not picked up tickets and on what day.
