The United States government requires residents of many countries to obtain a temporary visa before entering the United States. Recent changes to the visa application process may have increased the length of time required to receive your visa, so it is very important to apply for your visa at least six months prior to your departure. Read the information on our International Guests page that provides important links and details that should make the entire process easier for you.

No, but you may purchase food and beverage to serve in your booth through the convention services.

Warning — Providing food or beverage service to customers without the permission of the convention catering services will leave you subject to fines and possible cancellation of your booth privileges. More information will be included in the Exhibitor Services Manual, available in spring 2023.
