The organizers have designed a plan for the exhibition floor in order to maximize the exhibitor’s exposure to the delegates by having the poster sessions surrounding the exhibits as well as having the coffee service, lounges, food service areas and the internet café within Hall 1. Moreover, going from the registration area to some of the lecture rooms will be possible via the exhibition area.

An Exhibition and Sponsorship Prospectus has been issued. It contains details of the exhibition floor map with provisional stand location and a contract form. Exhibitors who book a booth early are more likely to get the location they want. However, exhibitors are welcome to suggest modification of stand areas to their specific requirements (i.e. deviations from the standard 3m x 3m booth to 3m x 6m, 9m x 9m, etc.). For detailed information on the exhibition and a contract form, see the Exhibition and Sponsorship Prospectus. The contract form is also available as a single page PDF file. Click here to import and print it. Once filled out, it should be mailed to The Herlitz Company.
