Booth Information for Exhibitors

Each exhibitor booth will consist of two backdrops, each 24" wide x 36" high for mounting posters or photos, etc. The abstract will be provided and will be mounted on one of these backdrop boards. The front table is 3 feet by 6 feet and will come with a table cloth. Two chairs will be provided. If you request a monitor for digital display, it will sit on the table so the aisles can be left clear. 

The Info for Exhibitors brochure contains important details, such as key deadlines, printing specs, and tips for preparing display materials and booth setup.
