Each conference will have limited sponsor availability. Sponsorships will be awarded on a first come first serve basis. Corporate sponsors will receive premium exhibitor locations and will be assigned first.

Booth Diagram/Preferences

Due to the constantly changing COVID-19 situation, event logistics, and spacing requirements, a current booth diagram is not available.  Once we get closer to the event, we will start assigning booths for sponsors first, then in the order that registrations with payments were received.

We will do our best to accommodate you, but space will be given to sponsors first, then first come first serve. The diagram may have to be adjusted to accommodate the number of corporate sponsors.  BOOTH SPACE WILL NOT BE RESERVED UNTIL PAYMENT IS RECEIVED.
