A comprehensive trade show and exhibition will run concurrently with the ABIC conference. The exhibition will showcase the latest development, products and technology available. Exhibiting is a must for any company within the industry to increase awareness amongst the delegates and other participants.

To increase the interaction between delegates and exhibitors, we are holding a major portion of the conference in the exhibition area. This will provide exhibitors with the opportunity to meet their goals. The Welcome Reception on Sunday evening, the Exhibitors Reception on Monday Evening, the first coffee of the day during the Continental Breakfast, the mid-morning and mid-afternoon Nutrition/Energy Breaks, and the ABIC Lunches will all be held in the exhibition area. Due to limited space, space is available on a first-come, first-serve basis.

The Exhibitor fee includes the rental of your exhibit space and features listed below including one complimentary delegate registration. The Delegate conference registration fee does not include entrance into the Gala Dinner Reception or the Gala Dinner Banquet. Tickets may be ordered for these events. Hotel guest room reservations are the responsibility of the registrant.

Additional Exhibitor Attendee Registrations can be purchased at a discounted fee. This registration is for people who will be manning the booth and are considered for access into the “Exhibition Area Only”. Additional Exhibitor Attendee Registration will include the Welcome Reception, Exhibitor’s Reception, continental breakfasts, nutrition/energy breaks and lunches during the 4-day conference. The Additional Exhibitor Attendee Registration will not include access to the plenary, concurrent sessions, Gala Dinner Reception or the Gala Dinner Banquet. Tickets may be purchased separately for the Gala Dinner Reception and Gala Dinner Banquet.

Extra tables, chairs, power, AV equipment and other items are available through the official ABIC show suppliers. Order forms and complete information on booking these items can be ordered on the order forms available in the link below.

All additional items will be at the exhibitor’s expense.

Booth exhibits must be ready by 5:00 pm on Sunday September 15, 2013. Set up will be from 12:00pm to 5:00pm. Booths must be dismantled on Wednesday September 18, 2013 by 1:30 pm.
