OTC 2018 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 1-626 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 2018 before or while at OTC 2017.

Starting 27 March 2017, OTC Show Management will begin calling exhibitors, in priority order, to pre-assign those with a priority rank of 1-450. This pre-assignment will help with companies whose space selection sometimes require redrawing of the floor plan during the selection process.

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

Exhibit space selections will take place Monday, 1 May-Tuesday 2 May in NRG Center, room 200; and Wednesday 3 May-Thursday, 4 May, in NRG Arena, Stockman’s Club.
POST-SHOW PRIORITY EXHIBIT SPACE SELECTION
WHO: Exhibitors with a Priority Rank of 627 and Higher
WHEN: Beginning 22 May 2017
Exhibitors with a priority rank of 627 and higher should submit an Online Space Application as soon as possible, but no later than by 12 May 2017. Please review the updated OTC 2018 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 627+ 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 2018 exhibit space will not be assigned without a completed Exhibit Space Agreement. A 25% deposit will be due on 3 July 2017 to confirm exhibit space.
All exhibitors will have until 3 July 2017 to request a reduction in size or cancel their space with no penalty.
FOR NEW EXHIBITORS
New exhibitors may submit an Online Space Application. Exhibit space will be assigned on a first-come, first served, space available basis beginning July 2017.
Exhibit space is assigned for the 2018 Offshore Technology Conference only.
