Creating a Self Select Booth Map
We all love how easy it is to look at an airplane seat map and select our preferred seat. This works much the same way. From the Booths tab you can view your various location areas (for events that have exhibitors in more than one location) along with quantity of selected booths (progress bar). You can reorder these booths and select the Actions button to change and configure the map.
NOTE: You can optionally choose to NOT create a booth map and simply have organizations register and then assign them a booth. The booth map and location selection is an optional way to manage exhibitor placement.
Uploading a Map
Cause Machine will require you to note the venue (and optionally building and room) for your booth map file. You can manage your Venue, Building, and Rooms from the Venue tab under General event settings.
Next upload your map file (preferably a .jpg).
Selecting each Booth Location
Once you have uploaded your map you will need to select each booth individually to build your location database. This works by clicking at one corner and unselecting at the other corner. You can draw boxes and rectangles. If the booth is odd shaped then try to capture as much of the footprint as possible. Once you have selected a specific area then select the booth # and booth type. For example, you may note the booth ID number (ex: 1001) and then the booth type (ex: Entry Booth). The booth number is generated from your booth directory list and the booth type is generated from your booth type list.
