Priority points are the participation and loyalty point system for TCT exhibitors. Accumulated points dictate the number of tickets entered into the lottery for more opportunities that will determine the Space Selection order for the current year's Show. Exhibitors will receive one ticket for every ten (10) points earned in the priority point process. Each ticket will be entered into a lottery on Friday, March 29, 2019. The lottery will be broadcast live.
The maximum number of priority points a company may receive is 290 priority or 29 tickets.
