OTC 2017 Returning Exhibitors

Important Information for OTC Priority Exhibitors

OTC conducts space assignments based on the OTC Priority Numbers System and then on a first-come, first-served basis.

OTC companies with a priority rank of 1-639 will have the opportunity to participate in the advanced or onsite exhibit space selection process.  This process allows you to select and reserve your exhibit space for OTC 2017 before or while at OTC 2016.

Advanced Priority Exhibit Space Selection

WHO:    Exhibitors with a Priority Rank of 1-350
WHEN:  28 March 2016

Exhibitors with a priority rank of 1-350 must submit an Exhibit Space Agreement no later than 18 March 2016 to participate in the advanced exhibit space selection process.

On 28 March 2016, OTC Show Management will begin calling exhibitors, in priority order, to pre-assign those with a priority rank of 1-350.  This pre-assignment will help with companies whose space selection sometimes require redrawing of the floor plan during the selection process.

Please refer to the preliminary floor plan (in the right sidebar, and subject to change).  Once the selection process begins, the OTC 2017 floor plan will be updated in real-time and will be available on the OTC 2017 website.

On-Site Priority Exhibit Space Selection

WHO:    Exhibitors with a Priority Rank of 351-639
WHEN:  2-5 May 2016 (on-site at OTC 2016)

Approximately two weeks prior to OTC 2016, the onsite space selection schedule will be posted on the 2017 OTC website.

Exhibitors with a priority rank of 351-639 will receive a link to the onsite space selection schedule via email.  This schedule will include your appointed time slot for exhibit space selection.  The schedule will also be distributed to your booth at OTC 2016.

Exhibit space selections will take place Monday, 2 May-Tuesday 3 May in NRG Center, room 200; and Wednesday 4 May-Thursday, 5 May, in NRG Arena, Stockman’s Club.

Post-Show Priority Exhibit Space Selection

WHO: Exhibitors with a Priority Rank of 640 and Higher
WHEN: 23 May-24 June 2016

Exhibitors with a priority rank of 640 and higher should submit an Exhibit Space Agreement by 13 May 2016. Please review the updated OTC 2017 floor plan before making your five preferred booth selections on the Exhibit Space Agreement. It is highly recommended that exhibitors with a priority rank of 640+ do not make booth choices in NRG Center as it will be fully occupied by the time we start assigning their space.

Space will be assigned in priority order, and then by date of submittal of agreement for exhibitors with the same priority ranking. OTC Management will attempt to contact exhibitors whose selections are not available.  If the attempt is unsuccessful, the best available exhibit space will be assigned.

After all advance, on-site and post-show priority time slots expire, space selection will be offered on a first-come, first-served basis regardless of priority rank or past participation. OTC 2017 exhibit space will not be assigned without a completed Exhibit Space Agreement. A 25% deposit will be due on 1 July 2016 to confirm exhibit space.

All exhibitors will have until 1 July 2016 to request a reduction in size or cancel their space with no penalty.

For New Exhibitors

New exhibitors may submit an Exhibit Space Agreement. Exhibit space will be assigned on a first-come, first served, space available basis beginning June 2016.

Exhibit space is assigned for the 2017 Offshore Technology Conference only.
