Travelers in the following categories are no longer eligible to travel or be admitted to the United States under the Visa Waiver Program (VWP):

  • Nationals of VWP countries who have traveled to or been present in Iran, Sudan, Syria, Libya, Somalia or Yemen on or after 1 March 2011 (with limited travel exceptions for diplomatic or military purposes in the service of a VWP country). 
  • Nationals of VWP countries who are also nationals of Iran, Sudan or Syria.

ESTA is Required

The Department of Homeland Security is now enforcing compliance of the Electronic System for Travel Authorization (ESTA) requirement for VWP travelers. A valid ESTA approval is required for all VWP travelers who are entering the United States by air or sea.

Authorization via ESTA does not determine whether a traveler is admissible to the United States. US Customs and Border Protection officers determine admissibility upon travelers’ arrival. ESTA applications may be submitted at any time prior to travel, though it is recommended that travelers apply as soon as they begin preparing travel plans or prior to purchasing airline tickets.

Global Entry

Global Entry Trusted Traveler Network Members are encouraged to proceed and use a Global Entry kiosk on their arrival into the US.

All passengers eligible to apply for the US CBP Global Entry Trusted Traveler Network Program are highly encouraged to do so. 

US citizens, US lawful permanent residents, and citizens of select countries are eligible for Global Entry membership. Find out which countries are eligible.

ADDITIONAL TIPS FOR YOUR FLIGHT AND ARRIVAL

  • Please check if your departure airport is one of 10 international airports where electronic devices larger than a smartphone will not be allowed as a carry-on item into the US. See which airports are affected. These devices must be placed in a checked bag.
  • For visitors arriving to the US via Bush Intercontinental Airport (IAH), take advantage of our dedicated OTC line in the Immigration Hall. Look for OTC directional signage on-site.

 

Please note that the aforementioned information is a general guideline for travel to the US. Because travel requirements may change, OTC recommends that attendees contact their local embassy to ensure they have proper documentation.

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.
