    • By E-ticket: An e-ticket will be sent to you via email approximately 1 week before the show. You can either print it out and save time by scanning the barcode at a badge delivery point in the Registration Area, or simply have it ready to scan on your mobile via the MAPIC mobile app. It is also available in the Online Database.
    • Registration Area: Collect your badge at the registration desk with your e-ticket (sent by email one week before the show) or a valid piece of ID.
