Also known as Priority Points, SHP are used to determine the order in which exhibitors may choose spaces on the floorplan for the upcoming show.
Ten points are awarded for exhibiting, five points are awarded for being a non-exhibitor on IBC Digital and one point is earned for every £2,000 spent directly with IBC between exhibition space, meeting space and sponsorships during that calendar year.
Exhibitors will be invited to their meeting appointments in show history point order.
Before IBC2021, exhibitors earned SHP on a slightly different algorithm. These points are carried over and this new system is used for awarding points from IBC2021 onwards.
