Exhibit space is available for a contribution of $2,100. Additional space is available for $2,000 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' X 10' 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 ($2,100)
2 booths = 5 reps/attendees ($4,100)
3 booths = 8 reps/attendees, etc. ($6,100)
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 ACCME Category 1 credit 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.
In 2011, for the first time, the Clinical Virology Symposium published an "Exhibit Guide." The 2013 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 new 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 2013. 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.
