Update your Exhibitor Dashboard for the Printed ProFood Tech Show Guide

PMMI will be publishing company name, booth number, full physical address, phone number, website and company email address for the ProFood Tech Show Guide which will be distributed to all attendees and exhibitors at the show.


It is critical for you to login to the Exhibitor Dashboard to review and approve your data prior to the publication of the Show Guide. The deadline is Friday, February 8, 2019.

 

Follow these simple steps to review and approve your data:

  1. Login to the Exhibitor Dashboard
  2. Enter your exhibitor ID and password that are listed in the header of this update. 
  3. Select "Exhibitor Directory Listing" – the top left tile.
  4. Review the details in the “Company Information” box to ensure the data is correct for those fields that will be published (company name, division, address, city/town, state/province, postal code, country, telephone, company email, website). If you need to make an update to this information, you must email expo@pmmi.org with the updates that should be made. These fields are not editable through the Exhibitor Dashboard.
  5. Once your data is reviewed, click “Approve Data” at the top of the screen.

If data is not reviewed and approved by the February 8 deadline, PMMI will use the data we have on file to populate in the printed Show Guide.

 

While logged into the dashboard, be sure to also complete your company description, vertical markets, product categories, press releases, show specials and more. The online directory is the ONLY place this information will appear and it is how attendees and media will plan who they will visit at the show.
