Create booth types

Overview

Our system uses Booth Types to indicate the price and dimensions of a booth on the map. Once you create a booth type, it can be assigned to booths on the map, and those booths will then sell for their associated booth type price. You can designate different colors for your booth types to differentiate between them.

There are a number of other things you can configure inside Booth Types:

  • Set up Pricing Tiers for a booth type to discount purchases that contain certain quantities of a single booth type.
  • Additional Pricing Options allow you to set up timed discounts like early bird discounts, and/or choose if they'll apply to specific member types as well as set up pricing tiers for those member types.
Note: Member types are set up inRegistration & Orders> User Registration Types
  • Select whether Exhibitor Plus will be included with the booth, and list how many personnel will be included with a booth to which this booth type has been assigned.
  • Specify light or dark font colors for its booth number.
