Please ship all literature and/or donations prior to May 13, 2013.

Program advertising is also available. Every registered attendee receives a printed program that includes the daily schedule of events and presentation abstracts.

Please include your company’s advertisement layout by April 12, 2013.


Additional Sponsorship Opportunities (Available to attending and non-attending exhibitors)

Morning and Afternoon Breaks:
Exhibitors wishing to sponsor breaks, which include snacks and refreshments, will be given individual recognition for their sponsorship. This will include recognition in the seminar program, verbally, and by having your logo displayed in the break area indicating your sponsorship. Each full day of technical presentations includes a morning and afternoon break. Please include your company’s logo for inclusion on display items by April 12, 2013.

Poster Session:
The Poster Session is an evening technical session that also acts as a casual, but interactive, “meet and greet” opportunity. Exhibitors wishing to sponsor the Poster Session will be given recognition for their contribution in the seminar program, verbally, and by having your logo displayed during the Poster Session. This year we will have refreshments available in the Exhibitor’s areas during this event, therefore bringing more potential business your way. Please include your company’s logo for inclusion on display items by April 12, 2013.

Promotional Gifts, Donations, and/or Door Prizes:
Any exhibitor who wishes to donate items to be given away or raffled at the Training Seminar will receive written and/or verbal recognition for their contributions. These items are always a big hit with seminar attendees and it is a fantastic way to showcase your company or new products. Donated items can include raffle or door prize items or sponsorship of the seminar program or name badges. Please ship any items you wish to donate by May 13, 2013 or contact the exhibitor committee to make other sponsorship arrangements.
