Customer Invite Program

Customer Invite Program - Powered by VIP Guest Invites

We are excited to offer you a fully integrated and streamlined Customer Invite Program (CIP) this year together with our official vendor, VIP Guest Invites. The Customer Invite Program is a Free and convenient exhibitor resource proven to drive traffic to your booth and attract valued attendees to your business.  This complimentary service provides you with an exclusive comp code and a full set of customized pre-show marketing materials, all in one organized dashboard for a user-friendly experience.

Registration Requirements

Complimentary registration is valid for online pre-registration only; not valid on-site. Expires March 25, 2019. Complimentary registration is intended for use by end-user, retailer and contract packager registrants. Non-exhibiting suppliers and distributors are required to pay standard attendance fees. A non-exhibiting supplier is defined as anyone who sells packaging/processing/converting equipment and/or anyone whose primary product is packing containers or materials, supplies, automation, or other services. A distributor is defined as a professional who resells packaging/processing/converting equipment/supplies.


Are there any restrictions on who can use the complimentary code?

The complimentary code can be used by end-user, retailer, and contract packager attendee types. Non-exhibiting suppliers and distributors are welcome to attend the show but do need to pay standard attendance fees.


Many of my customers are suppliers or distributors, how can I offer them FREE registration?

Exhibitors have the option to purchase registration on behalf of their customers at the early bird $30 rate. PMMI will issue you a separate link and bill you 5 days after the how to any non-exhibiting suppliers or distributors that register using your link. Email [email protected] to obtain your link.

Pending Status

My customer is in pending status after they completed registration- what is that?

New attendees to ProFood Tech are placed in a pending status if using a complimentary code so we can determine their accurate attendee type. Within 24 hours, they will be validated, and end-user, retailer, and contract packager registrants will be confirmed. Non-exhibiting supplier and distributors registrants will be informed that the standard attendance fees apply for their registration and will be provided a link to complete their registration.
