In order to increase traffic to the exhibit room, we will schedule other activities in the room, such as complimentary morning and afternoon beverage service each day for exhibitors and attendees. All exhibitors will also receive a complimentary listing in the annual meeting program book. Additionally, no sessions will be scheduled 1:15–3:00 pm Thursday through Saturday, and 5:00-6:00 pm Thursday, to allow meeting participants time for informal networking and visits to the exhibit room.
All spaces will be limited to draped tables with two chairs per table. Tables are 30" widex 6' long.
You may show videos in the exhibit room, but the sound must not interfere with other exhibitors. You may not play music in the exhibit room.
Hotel and shuttle reservation information will be posted on the AFS annual meeting page in early June; see https://afsnet.site-ym.com/?2014AM2. We recommend that you book your hotel rooms as soon as possible, since the conference block tends to sell out.
