Tracking Miscellaneous Expenses in your Annual Events Budget

Based on user feedback, we just released new functionality to track non-event-specific miscellaneous expenses in your annual budgets. These are trade show and exhibit expenses that are incurred against your annual event budget that cannot be attributed to a single event — for example: new booth furniture, or, updated print brochures.

You can manage your miscellaneous annual expenses under the [Other / Miscellaneous Expenses] tab of the Annual Budgets page in ExhibitDay.

Trade Show Shipment Tracking

Just Released – ExhibitDay’s Shipment Tracking module.
You can now use the [Shipment] tab of your events in ExhibitDay to track all your shipments (e.g. booth furniture, swag, presentation equipment) for your trade shows and exhibits.

The information that can be tracked for each shipment

  • Shipment Description
  • Courier
  • Tracking Number
  • Pick-up / Drop-off Location
  • Destination
  • Pick-up / Drop-off Date
  • Delivery Date
  • Shipment Cost (used in calculations of actuals in the event budget)
  • Invoice (attachable)
  • Notes/Details about the shipment

Track Your Event Sponsorships

Yet Another New ExhibitDay Feature…

We just added the ability to track your event sponsorships in ExhibitDay.

Each event in your ExhibitDay workspace now has a new [Sponsorships] tab. Under the Sponsorships tab, you can enter the descriptions of all your sponsorships for the event (e.g. “Attendee Badge Sponsorship”). Additionally, you can keep notes about your sponsorships and attach sponsorship invoices.
