Exhibitor Information

Dear Exhibitor,
 
Exhibit space is available for a contribution of $2,200. Additional space is available for $2,100 per space (100 sq feet).  

Single exhibit spaces consist of 10'x10' areas piped and draped for a free-standing booth, set up in the same location as the poster sessions and breaks. Other configurations, including islands, are available. One table per single space will be provided; extra tables, if needed, and electrical requirements, must be arranged with the exhibit setup firm. (As the Symposium nears, exhibitors will receive detailed information from the set-up firm.) Please note that the first 10'X10' exhibit space also includes free registration for two representatives from your company to staff your exhibit, and attend the scientific sessions and social events; three additional representatives per each additional booth may attend at no additional charge.

1 booth = 2 reps/attendees ($2,200)
2 booths = 5 reps/attendees ($4,300)
3 booths = 8 reps/attendees, etc. ($6,400)

ADDITIONAL exhibitor reps/attendees will be assessed a fee of $225 EACH. All registrants including additional exhibitor representative are invited to attend the scientific sessions and social events. Those attending the scientific sessions, including exhibitors, are eligible for ASCLS PACE or Florida Clinical Laboratory Personnel CE credit. Those wishing to receive AMA PRA Category 1 Creditâ„¢ MUST register at the full individual registration fee. Additional exhibitor employees beyond the complimentary booth numbers may be registered online at the registration link, and should select "Additional Exhibitor Employee." Once exhibits open on Sunday afternoon, and continuing through the close of the Exhibit Hall on Tuesday evening, all poster sessions and breaks are held in the Exhibit Hall.

Please notify us at your earliest convenience that you intend to be an exhibitor or supporter. The "Exhibit Reservation/Response Form" has been replaced by an online form. Click on the link to, complete the form online, and click on "Submit" at the bottom of the form. You will receive a copy of your submission at the "primary contact" email address you entered (we suggest you PRINT A COPY FOR YOUR RECORDS), and we will receive the completed form by email. A minimum deposit of $1,000 should follow your completed Reservation Form, and should be sent with the "Deposit/Payment Form." The Deposit form can be completed ONLINE with the exception of the signature. After you fill in the form online, print and complete as needed. Please read and  follow the instructions on the form, depending on whether you are paying by credit card or check. Payment in full is due by April 1, 2014. Companies which have committed to exhibit by October 31, 2013, and whose deposit we have received, will be listed in our brochure which is mailed to approximately 10,000 individuals. If you desire additional information, please contact us. Contributions and fees must be made payable to "The American Society for Microbiology." Please note on the check that it is for the Clinical Virology Symposium.

In 2011, for the first time, the Clinical Virology Symposium published an "Exhibit Guide." The 2014 Exhibit Guide will include a short description (provided by the exhibitors) of each exhibiting company, a map of the Exhibit Hall, and advertising. The guide will be in magazine format, and will be printed in full color. We believe this opportunity will enhance the exhibit experience, and give you, our exhibitors, another way to let virology professionals know how you can help them do a better job. We will collect some information in the online response form; requests for copy will be sent out in the first quarter of 2014. 

Many of you have expressed an interest in contributing to the Symposium by supporting speakers, travel awards, and the social activities. We appreciate the generous support we have received from a number of exhibitors since the 16th CVS, and have identified several additional support opportunities. You will find these opportunities listed below.

If you have any questions regarding exhibiting at the Symposium please do not hesitate to contact us. If I am unavailable, please contact my assistant, Sandi Manetta-Soto. You may reach her directly by phone (813-886-1612) or email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. .
