Free Expo Codes – Free registration ends 3/24/2019
Vendors at the show each have their own free code. There’s a competition put on by the show for exhibitors to get at least 300 sign ups. See below in the vendor grid for some free codes. I would recommend that you register for a free one, even if you aren’t sure that you can make it to the show. The code will save you about $150 on a pass. Let us know if your booth has a code and we’ll add it to the list.
There are loads of free guest passcodes for a Free Exhibits Pass on Twitter now, but here are a few of our vendors.
- Bluefish: LV8762
- BorisFX: LV8958
- Digital Anarchy: LV4979
- Telestream: LV2889
