Loyalty Program


Members are rewarded “Loyalty Points” for participation and support of various MHI programs throughout a calendar year. Accumulated points between January 1, 2019 and December 31, 2019 can be redeemed for a predetermined “Rewards Package” as well as determine position at our exhibit Space Draws for our ProMat and MODEX expos.

Points accumulated in 2019 can be redeemed for benefits/rewards in the 2020 calendar year. 2020 points will also determine position at our MODEX 2022 Space Draw.

Earning Loyalty Points

MHI Member companies can accumulate loyalty points through a variety of different avenues:

Due to the cancellation of the 2020 MHI Annual Conference, rewards for the conference will be honored for the 2021 MHI Annual Conference.

  • Membership
  • Trade shows
  • Industry Groups
  • MHI Meetings & Events
  • Volunteer Leadership
  • Advertising & Sponsorships

MHI Membership
All MHI Member companies receive ten (10) one-time only initiation points for joining MHI. Additionally, each MHI member company is credited with two hundred (200) points for being a current paid member in good standing with MHI for the current and previous year.

Example:
ABC Company is a first time MHI Member in good standing (all membership dues paid in full) for 2020 they will receive ten (10) one-time only initiation points that will be added to their Loyalty Point accrual. If “ABC Company” renews membership the following year they will receive two hundred (200) points in 2021.

New MHI Member Referrals
Each MHI Member company is credited with twenty-five (25) points for referring any company that becomes a new MHI member. It is up to the current Member to ensure the referral is listed on the new Member’s MHI Membership Application.

Trade Shows
Each MHI Member company is credited with ten (10) points for each year exhibiting at the six (6) most recent expos (including upcoming expos and Space Draw), plus one (1) point for each 100 square feet of exhibit space at each included expo. Should one MHI Member company have two (2) exhibit spaces, they will receive ten (10) points, plus one (1) point for each 100 square feet of the total square footage of all booths. See example below for more clarification.

Example:
ABC Company has decided to participate at the MODEX 2022 Space Draw. ***

ABC Company’s exhibit space points would be as follows:

  • MODEX 2022: Lease submitted with payment requesting 10x30 booth = 13 pts
  • ProMat 2021: 10x20 booth = 12 pts
  • MODEX 2020: 10x20 booth = 12 pts
  • ProMat 2019: Did not exhibit = 0 pts

*** *If ABC Company chose not to participate in the MODEX 2022 Space Draw and did not submit a lease by December 31, 2020; they would receive zero Exhibit Loyalty Points for MODEX 2022. Their total Exhibit Loyalty Points in 2020 would equal 24.

Frequently Asked Questions

How are loyalty points handled after an acquisition or merger?
For Space Draw, the new parent company will have access to all its divisional company’s points earned through exhibitions. All divisions will still have access to their original and future loyalty points for our annual rewards packages that offer discounts to MHI programming and events. It is the responsibility of the acquirer to let MHI know of their purchase.

Any acquisition notifications that occur after Friday, October 23, 2020 may not be processed in time for the MODEX 2022 Space Draw.

What if I believe my company’s Loyalty Point total is incorrect?
Loyalty Points are calculated with great care and we believe they accurately reflect the status of each MHI Member company. However, if you believe your company’s point total is incorrect or there is an error please contact the MHI Membership Department at .

What happens at the end of the year to my Loyalty Points?
Point totals remain where they currently stand and the annual points earned start over at zero (0) each calendar year.

How can I check my point total?
Members can visit mhi.org/loyalty/points to check their current total. If you do not know your user credentials, please contact the MHI Membership Department at .

Rewards Package

When will I know what my rewards are?
At the beginning of the year, Membership Packets will be mailed with point totals and corresponding Rewards Packages from the previous year. This is also available under the “For Members” portion of the mhi.org website.

How do I receive my rewards?
Every January, MHI Member companies will receive a Rewards package outlining the amount of Loyalty Points they have accumulated over the past year and what they can be redeemed for.

How long do I have to use my rewards?
Each member company will receive their Rewards Package during the next calendar year and can use their points during that year.

Due to event cancellations in 2020, the rewards packages for the Annual Conference will be rolled over until 2021.

Example: Points earned in 2019 will apply to their 2020 Rewards Package that can be redeemed January 1, 2020 – December 31, 2020.

Space Draw

What happens if my company buys an additional booth, increases/reduces booth size, or buys new or additional advertising/sponsorship products?
Each company will receive full credit for any changes/additions that positively or negatively impact the point total. MHI updates each company’s Loyalty Point total quarterly as well as before each exhibit space draw.

What happens at the Space Draw if two companies tie in Loyalty Points?
If two or more companies tie in Loyalty Points, the date and time the completed lease is received by MHI will be the tie-breaker.

How are Parent Company and Divisional Company’s points handled in regards to position at the Space Draw?
The Company/Organization (parent or divisional) that has the highest total of Loyalty Points will have their total points combined with the total Exhibit Space points of any company/organization in their group to determine their position in the Space Draw. See example for clarification.

 

Is there a cutoff date for Loyalty Points to apply to the point total for Space Draw?
Yes, Loyalty Points for the following categories must be finalized and, if applicable, paid in full by Friday, October 30, 2020.
