Location: Team Expo Space -  Cobo Center - Level 1 - Room 140

Teams will be able to print their badges at the Experient Kiosks in the Cobo Center. The main contact listed on the Experient website should receive an email containing a bar code one week prior to the event. The main contact can scan the barcode in the email or search for their team by team number/name.

After receiving your team’s badges, please proceed to the Expo Space (located in Room 140) and head to the team registration table to check-in your team and receive your assigned expo space, team gift, and detailed information about the event. Please make sure that team members are accompanied by an adult.
Team Expo Space
Your team will be assigned one table 6’ x 2.5’ (183 cm x 76 cm) with a small area to hang items behind and in front of your table. This will be your team’s space at the World Festival Expo.

You may decorate your space in a fun way to showcase your country, state, project, and unique team identity. We encourage you to be creative, but please consider the following limitations and restrictions:

  • For safety reasons, your decorations must remain within this space.
  • Power will not be provided at your team’s expo space. Teams will not have access to electrical outlets during the event. All teams should charge electronics prior to arrival and bring all electronics with them at the end of each day.
