About 200 O&M specialists from 30 states are planning to come to this conference, and they will be interested in your services and products related to O&M!
We are offering a variety of venues for you to reach our audience:
EXHIBITOR REGISTRATION ($250) includes:
Exhibit Table -- 12:00-6:30 PM Sunday, September 30 (set-up time 10:30-12:00):
We will have the exhibits in the same room that we'll have the opening general session and reception and/or in the large, spacious hallway just outside that room, depending on how many tables and participants we will have.
Presentation at General Session:
During our opening general session Sunday afternoon, you will have the opportunity to talk for a few minutes to tell everyone about the products and services you'll have at your table.
From evaluations of past conferences, we have found that participants really enjoy this part of the program and learning about what is available.
Time for attendees to browse exhibit:
For all but 2 1/2 hours of the time that the exhibits will be open, there are no competing sessions planned so that participants can come browse your table!
Reception 5:00-6:30 Sunday evening:
The food for the reception will be near the exhibitor tables.
Part of your registration fee includes a half-page ad in the conference program (full-page ads are available for additional $50).
Registration for one exhibitor including:
reception Sunday evening
admittance to any conference and pre-conference sessions, workshops and meals (see program schedule)
NOTE: You may have as many representatives as you want to help manage your exhibit.
If you want to provide them with registration badges to attend conference sessions, social events and meals, you will need to include an additional registration fee of $100 each.
