Each exhibitor or visitor carries a visitor badge, the so-called badge. At first glance, it becomes clear if it is a PSI exhibitor or PSI visitor (split again into PSI Member, Non-Member, Industry customers). Visitors to PromoTex Expo and / or viscom who visit PSI will get a separate PSI Badge with the non-member identification. Furthermore, it is also possible for visitors to PromoTex Expo and viscom to complete a PSI membership after successful verification.

With their stand booking, exhibitors will also receive the dMAS scan app, which allows them to scan all visitors to their stand and document every conversation. In addition, notes can be recorded, article requests answered or digital media loaded on the visitors badge. With the scan app, exhibitors have the opportunity to simplify the follow-up of the show, e.g. by sending offers directly from the tool to the customers or the possibility to view or download lists of all contacts from the PSI. The use of the dMAS system for scanning industry customers is mandatory on the third day of the show. Here it becomes visible whether or not it is an industry customer. In the app and on the badge it is also noted which PSI distributor / consultant has invited this industry customer. In addition, exhibitors can already find the inviting PSI distributor or consultant directly on the badge of industry customers. It should be noted that exhibitors will only receive the company and personal names of the industry customer as well as the contact details of the inviting PSI distributor/consultant.

  • PSI ticket holders may visit viscom and PromoTex Expo in addition to PSI.
  • PromoTex Expo ticket holders are allowed to visit viscom in addition to PromoTex Expo.
  • viscom ticket holders are allowed to visit viscom and PromoTex Expo.
  • PromoTex Expo and viscom ticket holders are therefore not authorized to enter PSI.

Exceptions: the ticket holders of the PromoTex Expo and / or viscom can be verified in the run-up to the shows or on-site as a promotional products distributor/consultant or they are invited by a PSI distributor or consultant as an industry customer on the third day of the show.

In accordance with the PSI GTC for suppliers as well as the PSI regulations, exhibitors may generally only communicate price lists with gross price details. Due to the highly fragmented buyer target groups of the suppliers, gross price lists are basically the only meaningful way in the communication. Gross price lists must be kept and used on all days of the PSI trade show. This is all the more true when industry customers visit the stand. The exhibitors may only give their industry customers gross / industry prices. Requests for purchase prices for distributors / consultants may not be answered, as these are the responsibility of the individual contract between suppliers and distributors / consultants.

PSI members have the opportunity to buy their tickets at the online ticket shop, on-site or to redeem their manufacturer's invitation code online or on-site. Trade visitors who are not yet members of the PSI must first register themselves and then be verified in the PSI Directory. Afterwards you have the opportunity to become a PSI member or to purchase a ticket.

Industry customers may only be invited by the PSI distributors, who have already registered themselves as visitors to the PSI 2019, via an invitation code. The industry customers can then register via the separate PSI industry customer ticket shop or on-site in the separate registration area for industry customers.

Especially from the textile sector of PSI, the desire for an open trade zone has been voiced time and again, which goes beyond the borders of PSI. The new structure serves both sides.
