Joint Expo Point System for Exhibitor Booth Selection


Exhibitors are assigned their booths through a point system. The points are calculated based on a rolling total for the past five years. Booth assignments will be made once each month leading up to the show until all space is allocated. Booth space must be paid for in order to have your booth space assigned regardless of points earned.


What earns points?


  1. Number of times exhibiting in the past 5 years. Cumulative. 1 point per year.
  2. Total number of booths purchased in the last 5 years (total points vary). Cumulative. 1 point per 10x10 booth space.
  3. Starting 2016 (eligible for Joint Expo 2018), points will be given for sponsorship and exhibiting at the MWEA and AWWA Annual Conferences*:
    • MWEA (5 points max):
      • MWEA AC Exhibitor: 1 pt
      • Lake Superior sponsor: 4 pts
      • Lake Michigan sponsor: 3 pts
      • Lake Huron sponsor: 2 pt
      • Lake Erie: 1 pt
    • MI-ACE (4 points max)
      • MI-ACE Exhibitor: 1pt
      • Platinum Sponsor: 4 pts
      • Gold Sponsor: 3 pts
      • Silver Sponsor: 2pts

Ties will be addressed looking at the following criteria: Booth Preference and right of first refusal for existing booth. Then, date of paid booth space. Then, comparing each company based on the previous year. Each tied company will be compared based on participation in the expo (yes or no), and number of booths in that specific year. Review will continue going back up to five (5) years until priority is assigned.


*Points given for exhibiting or sponsoring at either MWEA or MI-AWWA annual conferences will always be a year behind (2016 support applies points to the 2018 Joint Expo booth placement). However, these points will also have a rolling five-year accumulation.
