SIGNAGE OPPORTUNITIES AT NRG PARK

Our on-site advertisement opportunities guarantee big visibility. Opportunities include:

Aisle Signs: Aisle signs broaden your company’s exposure across the exhibit halls. These signs are hung on every exhibition aisle in NRG Center and NRG Arena. Purchase a section that is near your booth, or purchase all of the sections for maximum exposure.

Carpet Logos: Attendees do a lot of walking at OTC, and what better way to promote your company than to remind them about you as they stroll around. Carpet logos can be placed anywhere throughout NRG Center and NRG Arena, except the main aisle.

Escalator Runners: Because OTC activities take place on both levels of NRG Center, four sets of escalators provide conference participants with access to the technical sessions on the second floor. As a sponsor of the escalator runners, your company receives recurring ads every 4 to 6 feet (depending on artwork) for approximately 80 feet of escalator space.

Exhibit Entrances: At NRG Center, five entrances lead conference participants from the lobby into the exhibition. At NRG Arena, two entrances lead conference participants from the lobby into the exhibition. This is an ideal opportunity to promote your company on and off the exhibit floor and provides landmark recognition. As an exhibit entrance sponsor, your company receives three, four-sided column wraps and one 6’ x 10’ lobby banner.

Indoor and Outdoor Banners: Indoor and outdoor banners are a great way to inform OTC attendees where your booth is located and what you are promoting before they even get inside the exhibit floor. With various sizes and locations available, a banner will put your company first in mind as attendees begin their OTC experience.

 

PRIORITY POINTS

  • All exhibiting companies earn ten (10) points per year for exhibiting, regardless of the exhibit size and/or location.
  • Additional annual priority points are awarded for exhibitors who participate in any official OTC advertising and sponsorship opportunities purchased directly with OTC, or with CMAC or the OTC Show Daily, on the following scale:
