Access Our Database

To better serve our exhibitors’ marketing needs, MHI is allowing access to our database on a per record basis. This is the ONLY way to access our database and is an exhibitor-exclusive benefit - we do not sell our list to anyone else. We offer use of these lists for direct mail and for email to attendees who opted to share this information with outside parties.

  • Pre-Show

  • ONE MAILING ONLY - Mailer must be pre-approved

  • 1X Use - $0.10 per record

  • Order Form

Order online by logging into the Exhibitor Portal at exhibit.mhi.org and selecting “Access Our Database” on the left and then selecting the appropriate trade show.

You can then make your list selects and see the direct mail and email count at the top of the page to manage the size of your list. Once you complete your selects, you will receive your order confirmation with payment information. Once your order and payment is received, you will receive instructions to complete your email or direct mailing.

Email Lists
All emails to the attendee list will be distributed on your behalf through MHI. Once your order is placed, MHI will work with you on the timing and execution of your email.

Postal Mail Lists
All mailing information will be sent to a mailing house, not directly to exhibitors. You can use your preferred mailing house, simply submit the List License Agreement. If you do not have a mailing house, MHI has negotiated special rates with an MHI-appointed mailing house to conduct direct mailings to the trade show attendee list. You can utilize their templates, ship pre-printed materials to them or print and mail custom printed mailings with them. To learn more go to http://mhi.pbmorders.com.

Allow four weeks from the close of the show for access to the post show list.
