  1. Official Suppliers & Recommended Service Providers have direct, ongoing communications with the show organizers and venue
  2. We ensure that Official Suppliers & Recommended Service Providers offer you great value for the money
  3. Using our pre-screened Official Suppliers & Recommended Service Providers may result in a faster internal tender process
