Frequently Asked Questions

Are press allowed into the event and, if so, how do they register?

Yes, SIMA welcomes press to our events.  Please submit the 2016 Press Pass Waiver Registration form to the SIMA office.

What funds are accepted as payment onsite?

SIMA accepts all major credit cards onsite. Cash and checks will not be accepted for onsite registration, please come to the show with a current credit card to access the show.

I purchased a trade-show ticket or day pass for a single day I can no longer make, but I can make the alternate day.  Can I exchange my trade show ticket?

Yes, come to the registration desk onsite to make the change. 

Can I drive myself to any of the offsite festivities, i.e., closing event? 

SIMA is solely responsible for its guests and, as such, for liability reasons, we cannot allow our guests to drive themselves to offsite activities.  Guests must use the provided transportation.

There is a ticketed event I’m interested in but it’s sold out and I’ve been added to the waitlist. When will I be notified of whether or not I made it into the event?

Unfortunately, until someone cancels, SIMA won’t know if space will be available.  We will make every effort to notify you as soon as a spot opens up, but there are times when that may not happen until we’re onsite at the show.

Can children attend the trade show portion of the Symposium?

Yes, children 17 & under can attend the trade show at no cost. Please note that any child under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult/guardian. Exhibitors, we ask that anyone under the age of 18 not assist or be present during move in/move out times.
