  • The Exhibitor Registration website for AAO 2024 opens on July 10.

    Review all policies and registration information in the Exhibitor Registration (PDF 185KB) section of the Exhibit Prospectus.

    The online registration process allows exhibiting companies to manage their list of representatives, making changes, additions and deletions until the close of the annual meeting.

    Each company has appointed an individual to register the company’s employees. This individual can access the link to the Exhibitor Registration website by logging into the Exhibitor Portal and selecting the Exhibitor Registration item on their Checklist.

    Exhibiting companies receive five (5) complimentary badges per 100 square feet of exhibit space purchased and can pay for two (2) additional representatives per 100 square feet.

    The exhibitor badge allows access to:

    • Free sessions
    • Symposia
    • Posters
    • Videos

    Exhibitor Representatives may not register for Skills Transfer courses.

    Registered representatives can register to attend Subspecialty Day and/or access the virtual meeting using the link(s) in their registration confirmation email.

    Representatives of commercial companies attending an educational activity may not participate in the discussion or engage in company promotion or sales activities while in the room, or outside the room where the educational activity takes place. This includes Academy educational areas in the exhibit hall.

    The Exhibitor Representative badge does not allow access to the virtual meeting or Subspecialty Day meetings.
