The Main Stage ("Launching Pad") will feature Keynotes & Card Brands speakers.
"Solar Stage" and "Lunar Stage" are two equally sized rooms side-by-side on Day 2.

EP3: Exhibitor Preference Point Program

MAC's EP3 will take effect on November 1, 2022.

MAC utilizes an Exhibitor Preference Point Program (EP3) to recognize exhibitor support for Level Up and other MAC programs. The cumulative number of points determines the time and date a company is given to choose exhibit space for the following year’s conference. Exhibit space is assigned in the order of priority points, and priority points are received throughout the year by completing tasks and by overall spending as indicated within this policy.
