A: The 2023 exhibitor kit is available in the exhibitor portal, under tasks. Lead retrieval information will be coming out later in September.
Q: When should I reserve my hotel room?
A: As soon as room block links are available! We always sell out of the main hotels around September. We do not recommend overbooking rooms and canceling later--we have a 30-day cancellation policy and we’ll periodically review booking lists and contact those who have booked multiple rooms to be sure they need all rooms.
Q: Are there exhibitor discounts available?
A: Unfortunately there are not any exhibitor discounts available at this time. Q: What meals are included in the booth fee?
A: Your registration fee includes the following meals. Prior attendees have requested that we add a protein item to the breakfasts--we are doing our best to affordably add that and will have more information later! “Heavy appetizers” means things like chicken skewers, quesadillas, bruschetta, etc.
- Welcome Reception - Heavy Appetizers
- Expo Hall Opening Reception - Heavy Appetizers

Q: Can I access sessions with an exhibitor badge?
A: Sessions and certain meals are only open to attendees under the Educational, Affiliate, One-Day, or Retired/Student registration types. To access conference sessions and attendee activities, an exhibitor would have to upgrade their badge from a booth staff registration to Affiliate registration.
Q: What if you cancel the event?
A: We believe we can plan to safely hold this event in November 2023. We would only cancel if the pandemic worsened and local/state/federal governments imposed stay-at-home orders. If that happens, we will make adjustments and contact all exhibitors with options.
