Exhibit Booth Options and Prices

To pick your booth, use the online diagram: Exhibit Hall Status

The exhibit hall is situated in carpeted ballroom with more than 126,000 square feet of space.  All booths will be pipe & drape and are situated around the perimeter of the exhibit hall with "low rise" pipe and drape islands in the center giving all of the displays excellent visibility to the attendees.  Companies wishing to purchase additional space (i.e., a "double" booth) may reserve adjoining (and unsold) spaces.  Electricity is available at an additional cost for "standard" display spaces and is included for Premium exhibitors (see below for details).  Non-profit organizations and academic institutions (such as universities/medical schools) may access discounted tabletop space in the foyer outside of the exhibit hall.

All breaks and the lunch period will take place in the exhibit hall which will be open throughout the conference.  In addition, we will be actively working to bring attendees to your booth.

Once again this year . . .  All attendees are invited to attend a post-conference cocktail reception immediately following the conclusion of the afternoon sessions.  Exhibiting company representatives are encouraged to attend this event as our guests to socialize with the doctors and office staff at this informal gathering.
