The Technology Exhibition offers your organization the opportunity to display innovative research, technology and services of interest to the medical aerosol community. Refreshment breaks, 'Grab and Go' lunches, and a Wine & Appetizers reception on Monday evening are organized in conjunction with the Scientific Poster Session and Technology Exhibition for additional opportunities to network with industrialists, medical professionals, regulatory agencies and academics.
The Scientific Poster Session and Technology Exhibition will be continuously accessible from 10:00 AM to 7:00 PM on Monday, April 23 and from 8:30 AM to 7:00 PM on Tuesday, April 24, while the meeting is in session. The exhibition will be the main RDD event during the following times:
- Monday, April 23, 11:30 AM–2:30 PM and 5:00–7:00 PM
- Tuesday, April 24, 11:30 AM–2:30 PM and 5:00–7:00 PM
- Exhibit tables are complimentary at RDD meetings in the United States. If you want access to electrical power at your table the cost is $250, which must be paid before we confirm your reservation and list your participation on the RDD website.
- All exhibitors must register and pay the registration fee for the conference; we do not issue reduced-rate exhibitor passes.
- Your company may also wish to consider conference sponsorship and benefit from enhanced visibility to the RDD audience. RDD 2018 Conference Sponsors have the opportunity to select their Exhibit Table location. Exhibitors who are not conference sponsors are located at the discretion of the organizers. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in conference sponsorship.
Technology Exhibition Full
The Technology Exhibition is now full and we are running a wait list. You will be added to the waiting list automatically if you request a table after we are at capacity. It is possible that companies will withdraw, fail to register one or more representatives or that slightly more space may become available to us at the conference hotel. We cannot make any promises that this will happen, but we will contact you if it does. Please use the normal Reservation Procedure (but do not make any payment for electricity). To be considered for a table, you must already be registered for the meeting.
Technology Exhibition Guidelines
Our goal is to create a sustained, intensive networking opportunity for large and small companies in a comfortable, intimate environment close to the main auditorium. To that end the following rules are strictly enforced:
- All display material must be on top of the tables we provide. No booths or displays standing on the floor.
- Monitors less than 24 inches tall (on their stand) are acceptable, but lighted displays are not.
- Please do not place anything taller than 24 inches or heavier than 40 lbs on your table.
Table Location and Size
We provide conference sponsors the opportunity to select their preferred table location before the meeting; other exhibitors are located at the organizers’ discretion. Within the constraints of the available exhibit space, we locate posters from an organization close to their exhibit table. Confirming an exhibit table early maximizes the chance your poster will be located nearby. We provide an Exhibition Floor Plan to you and all delegates so they can easily locate your table.
All tables are approximately 72 inches long, 30 inches tall and 24 inches wide. Tables have a white cover and blue skirt on three sides. We encourage you to display your company name and/or logo on a freestanding sign no taller than 24 inches or using a printed tablecloth.
A 120V electrical outlet is available at your table only when requested before the meeting. The $250 charge for electrical service must be paid before we confirm your table reservation. Visitors from outside the United States are responsible for bringing appropriate electrical adaptors.
Do not attempt to enter the exhibition area before 3:00 PM on Sunday, April 22. Set-up is encouraged on Sunday, April 22, between 3:00–7:00 PM, but for late arrivals set-up is permitted on Monday, April 23, from 7:30–9:00 AM.
After you visit the on-site registration desk, review the conference program or the floor plan in the exhibition area to find your assigned table location. Do not set up in a different location. To protect your property, hotel security will not allow access to the exhibition area from Sunday at 7:00 PM until Monday at 7:30 AM.
Displays should be removed between 7:00–9:00 PM on Tuesday, April 24. At your own risk you may remove your display on Wednesday, April 25, between 7:30 AM–9:30 AM, but please note there will be no hotel security on Tuesday night. Displays not removed before 9:30 AM Wednesday could be lost or damaged as the exhibition is dismantled.
The Small Print
The meeting organizers and the JW Marriott Starr Pass Resort expressly disclaim responsibility for loss or damage to displays, laptops and other items that you bring into the exhibition. We recommend that you take small, high value items such as laptop computers or prototype devices with you when you are not at your table or are leaving the exhibition for the evening.
Please ensure anyone shipping packages to the meeting on your behalf receives a copy of these instructions.
