Also, each exhibitor must have a badge to gain access to the general sessions or educational sessions. To register your personnel, go to our website at www.npf.org and sign-in to the registration with your username and password provided via email to register your personnel. If you have already gone online to reserve hotel reservations for your personnel, this will also register them for exhibitor badges. Exhibitor registration should be made by February 26, 2016. After that date go to the registration desk inside the Exhibit Hall at the 2016 NPF.
Exhibitor Housing is now open!
We have heard that there are unauthorized vendors trying to secure room reservations from exhibitors for 2016 NPF, but please be assured, these are not authorized hotels and may result in misinformation, non-guaranteed reservations, higher fees upon check-in and lost room deposits.
The Exhibitor Service Manual is available and contains rules, regulations and general information, plus various order forms for services exhibitors may need during installation and dismantle.
Should your company require any catering for event functions please reference the 2016 Exhibitor Catering Menu for available choices.
As a value-added service, exhibitors may promote their products and services to NPF attendees through pre-show mailings.
The National Postal Forum must approve all promotional pieces in advance. Promotional items must tie in the company's participation and products being displayed at the National Postal Forum. Promotional mailings may be scheduled to drop as early as March 4, 2016.
Exhibitors may mail to Mailing Industry Attendees, USPS and/or Exhibitors. The charge to mail to the pre-event mailing list is a flat fee of $500 to the NPF. Please contact Mary Guthrie, 703-
New Product listings give exhibitors an opportunity to showcase their new products in the Program/Exhibit Hall Guide. New Product information can also be distributed in a press release prior to the Forum. Download a copy of the New Product Form and submit it to NPF by the deadline to take advantage of this opportunity.
Hospitality Suites are available and may be reserved through Judy Clear at the NPF Headquarters at (703) 293-2317.
Note: Hospitality functions are not permitted during National Postal Forum Educational Sessions.
The National Postal Forum monitors closely the requests from companies for hospitality suites in an effort to encourage exhibitors to use the suites during non-official function hours, and to discourage non-exhibiting companies from utilizing a hospitality suite for business purposes and product demonstrations.
Promote your participation at the NPF by utilizing the NPF logo.
