Promotional opportunities — available exclusively to exhibiting companies — are the perfect way to increase the visibility of your message, improve booth traffic and generate sales leads.
Academy polling shows that nearly 60% of survey respondents indicate that is "extremely" or "very" important for them to visit the exhibit hall. Capture their attention through pre-show mailers, on-site signage and advertising.
A listing of 2020 Promotional Opportunities will be available in the spring.
All promotional opportunities are available on a first-come basis.

Third parties are event management firms, marketing firms or other organizations hired by an exhibiting company to handle exhibit details, logistics, publicity and advertising, etc. Meeting space, promotional opportunities, etc. will not be assigned until the exhibiting company submits the signed Third Party Authorization Form, confirming authorization for a specific third party to work on its behalf. This third party arrangement will not be taken into account when granting the extension of deadlines.
If you are a third party, working on the behalf of an exhibiting company:
- Request forms will be available in the spring to have the Academy contact exhibiting companies about Third Party Authorization.
- Completed request forms should be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org or fax to 415-561-8576.
If you are an exhibiting company meeting contact:
The primary contact for the exhibiting company can submit the Third Party Authorization form in the Exhibitor Portal to authorize a company they have hired to work on their behalf.
