Housing Lottery with an Exhibitors Badge?
Posted by bowker

I have worked with booths for close to 10 years and due to the timing of when I would receive my Exhibitor badge, I usually had to purchase my own (and get a refund later) in order to register for housing and events. This year, I've gotten it early. My question: Because I am technically not my badge's purchaser, will I be excluded from the housing market? If that's the case, I'll just buy a normal badge and get the refund as usual.

Is the badge assigned to your account i.e. if you click on your name up by the menu, does it show that you have a badge?  If so, you’re probably fine.  If not, buy a badge.  Regardless, the best answer is: contact customer service and ask them - they’ll know for sure.  Most of the rest of us (myself included) are guessing.

Hope that helps!

Quick update: I did receive confirmation from customer service that I would need to buy a separate badge to be entered into the time lottery system. My assumption is that the vendor is allowed to reserve a number of rooms based on the number of badges they have and allowing me to reserve my own using one of those badges would be double dipping with a single badge.
