Free IAAPA Tickets
How do you get free pass to the expo show?
Well, exhibitors like manufacturers will get free expo tickets from the association, the number of free tickets a mfg owns is depend on what size of their booth they book. But can you just ask for a mfg to get a free ticket? Apparently no, manufacturers will prefer to send out those tickets to their own regular and royal customers.
