Priority Points are earned by exhibitors based upon their history of purchasing booth space at past events. The criteria for earning priority points are unique for each client. Contact your a2z Project Manager to discuss and configure the correct logic. This page will allow the user to update priority points for all companies for the selected event.
An example of how priority points may be calculated would be:
Booth Space = 1 point per 100 square feet (10x10) per year.
Sponsorship = 1 point per sponsorship purchased per year.
Update Earned Priority Point – Updates all exhibitors/companies that are associated with this event. Use this to create the earned points for the year’s event. This cannot be reversed once it has been processed inside the system. If a reversal is needed immediately contact your a2z Project Manager.
Calculate Priority Point - Will calculate the starting priority points that are applicable to this event for all exhibitors who have purchased booth space at a previous event of the same event type.
Exhibitor Priority Point Status
The results will come up in a form called “Exhibitor Priority Point Status.” Use this form to proof the starting or earned points, and then scroll to the bottom of the list and select “Update” or “Calculate” to process the data.
Whether you have chosen update earned priority points or calculate starting priority points the form will show you all the fields:
