Lead Retrieval Information - *Please note PennWell will again offer a high speed QR code in lieu of the "PDF 417" 2D barcode we have used in the past. This will not affect you if you currently use a lead retrieval unit provided by our appointed lead retrieval contractor, American Tradeshow Services (ATS). If you use your own lead retrieval, please contact ATS in advance of EMS Today 2016 as they can assist you in making sure you have necessary information to ensure your lead system will work. You can contact ATS here: http://www.american-tradeshow.com/contact
Sales Tax License - Any event that sells a product or merchandise to the general public or large private groups will be responsible for collecting the 6% Maryland Retail Sales Tax. Each exhibitor will be required to have a 30-day license from the State of Maryland. If an exhibitor already has a State Sales Tax License, he is required to display a copy of said license at the place of his exhibit. It is the responsibility of management to inform each of his exhibitors of this requirement.
All inquiries should be directed to:
