B2B Lounge

Distributors and Contractors from all around the world invite suppliers to B2B Lounge

The “Distributors’ and Contractors’ Lounge” was developed and supported by the distributors and contractors of some of the world’s largest Mega Projects. It will be through this Lounge that these distributors and contractors will meet with potential vendors, suppliers, and service providers seeking an opportunity to take part in road, bridge and tunnel projects all around the world.

Exhibitors and Sponsors of the Expo will have the exclusive opportunity to participate in the meetings to be held in the Distributors’ and Contractors’ Lounge. The organization of these meetings will take place one month prior to the EXPO and based on the mutual consent of the parties involved.

The Distributors’ and Contractors’ Lounge will be one of the most important platforms for companies seeking to be vendors, suppliers, and service providers for the Road, Bridge and Tunnel projects all around the world.

Exhibition Guidelines

Exhibiting in a show is a very detailed process and is compounded when planning a show in another country. The following are some helpful hints to assist with show planning.

TrailerBox Vehicle


In the United States one company/vendor known as the general service contractor is the exclusive provider of the following services at the convention center:

  • All Hanging Signs – Exhibitors or their appointed contractors are not allowed to hang/rig their own hanging signs.
  • Freight Handling – Exhibitor can hand-carry or use a two wheel under most conditions. All equipment & materials requiring a fork lift, crane or other equipment to move or assemble must be done through the general service contractor (FREEMAN).
  • Freight Storage – Exhibitors cannot store empty crates or pallets in their exhibit booth.
  • Electrical and/or Plumbing Installation/Dismantling – These services need to be provided by the general service contractor.

The general service contractor for R2T Global Expo is FREEMAN


An Exhibitor Appointed Contractor (EAC) is any company other than the designated official contractors that the exhibitor appoints to provide services such as display installation and dismantling, models, florists, photographers, audio visual firms, etc. and need access to your exhibit any time during installation, show dates or dismantling.


  • Plan to ship early – with increasing security procedures causing delays to and from the United States, it is imperative that you meet the published deadlines.
  • Exhibit Booth Materials — Consider renting an exhibit package from FREEMAN to reduce the amount of materials you ship. The rental cost could be substantially lower than shipping.
  • How to ship – select ocean freight if your schedule allows for up to six weeks transit. Choose air freight for a much shorter transit time. Small ocean freight shipments (under one cubic meter) incur several minimum charges, so air freight is sometimes less expensive than sea freight.
  • Use a professional exhibition freight forwarder – forwarders without detailed exhibition experience and without a network of exhibitions specialists can make Customs and transportation mistakes. Avoid arriving to an empty booth.
  • Labeling and Packing – Clearly label each package with your company name, the name of the show and your booth number. Large labels work best. See the exhibitor resource center for more information. Be sure that your packing materials are adequate for both the means of transport and the sensitivity of your goods. Documentation – prepare a commercial invoice in English with complete descriptions and model/serial numbers. Include a packing list with the dimensions, gross and net weights of each package shipped.
  • Insurance – acquire adequate insurance to cover your exhibit to and from the show.
  • Country of Origin – U.S. Customs requires that all goods be permanently marked with their country of origin.

If you have any questions or general inquires, please contact us.

Innovative practices and technological advancements are the keys to the continued development of the road, tunnel, & bridge sector. As such, the contractors of the world’s biggest mega projects are looking for these innovations and technological advancements that can offer them efficient, effective and proven solutions with the understanding that innovation comes from companies both big and small.

The “Live Theatre” sessions will offer companies the opportunity to both share their knowledge with the participants and also promote their featured products.

The “Live Theatre” sessions will take place in 20-minute sessions and will enable the transfer of knowledge on important projects, sectoral developments and new technologies to interested institutions, organizations and companies.
