Exhibit Space Assignment Process

In order to ensure appropriate booth assignment, please provide your preferred booth choices. AABB reserves the right to make any modifications that may be necessary to best accommodate space requests.

Booth spaces are assigned using a priority point system and then on a first come, first served basis.

How to Receive Priority Points

  1. Exhibit in the Exhibit Hall during the AABB Annual Meeting = One point per year
  2. Book exhibitor housing = One point per year (100% of exhibitor housing must be booked through Experient, AABB's official housing provider, at the AABB-designated hotels to qualify.)
  3. Ultimate and Platinum Supporters at Annual Meeting ($50,000 and over) = One point per year
  4. Corporate Affiliate = One point per year

Payment: 50% deposits are due with the exhibit space application for application received prior to April 26, 2014. Full payment must accompany booth space applications received after April 26, 2014. Booths cannot be held or reserved without the appropriate payment. All fees must be paid in full in U.S. dollars. Failure to submit full payment by April 26, 2014 will result in forfeiture of your assigned space. Once forfeiture occurs, you will be required to resubmit your application with full payment and be reassigned exhibit space.

Ancillary Meetings

Ancillary meetings are meetings held by exhibitors and non-profit organizations. These meetings are listed as business meetings, focus groups, hospitality suites and special events, and annual meeting attendees are typically notified by invitation from the supporting company or organization. Ancillary meetings can be held only at times that do not compete with AABB programming.

Exhibitors requesting access to one room for the entire week at either the convention center or hotel meeting space, will be charged a rental fee.
