Frequently Asked Questions

Each exhibiting company receives 4 badges per 10×10 space with a maximum of 12. Exhibitor badges allow access to the show floor prior to and post show hours. Additional passes may be purchased for $10 each. Please note: If employees are working during show hours, companies may also register them with a comp pass or purchase a show only badge. Employees who are coming to set-up or tear down the booth are not required to wear badges.

All exhibitors and visitors to the Farwest Show must wear a badge to gain admittance to the trade show floor. Attendees 16 and under do not need to pay admittance.

Are you an exhibitor? If so, your badges were not mailed to you. All exhibitor badges will be included in your Exhibitor Packet available for pick up when you move-in. Exhibitor Packets can be picked up at the Show Office in room C120 at the Oregon Convention Center.

The Farwest Show limits the number of exhibitor badges issued in an effort to strengthen show security and protect the valuable assets of all exhibitors. An exhibitor badge entitles the holder to enter the exhibit hall at 8 a.m. on days of the show and to remain on the floor for a reasonable length of time after the show closes each day in order to make necessary preparations for the next day’s business. It’s been our experience that few, if any, exhibitors need more than 12 people to be on the show floor during non-show hours.

We will no longer be sending out your move-in pass like years prior. Please see the schedule below to see what time you are able to move in based on your booth number.

All show rules are important, and all exhibitors and their representatives are expected to know the rules. However, there are a handful of rules very specific to Farwest and we encourage all exhibitors to pay particularly close attention to regulations on Display Configuration, Sub-Leasing their space, Exhibitor’s Solicitations and Special Equipment Restrictions, including Hazardous Materials.
