Exhibit Hall Information:

Please note that all Sponsor and Exhibitor requests must be received by December 15, 2023. Exhibit space is limited and will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis.  We typically sell out early, so don’t delay!

  • As in previous years, exhibitors will be asked and encouraged to donate goods or services to our annual raffle – All proceeds fund our student and early career professional programs. This is optional and agreement to do so will not reduce the table registration cost.
  • If you plan to ship your exhibit materials or merchandise in advance, please contact the conference center to inquire about space restrictions, timing, and charges.
  • Exhibitors are eligible for the discounted hotel rates that we have arranged for our meeting attendees.  Limited rooms are available so be sure to book early!
