2014 Fall Research Conference Exhibit Space

APPAM will offer its institutional members the opportunity to exhibit at the Albuquerque Convention Center for the Fall Research Conference. Exhibit space is limited and will be offered on a first come, first served basis. This is a great opportunity to promote your program to students, potential employees and the public policy community.

New this year, the exhibit area will be designed and managed by an exhibit hall decorating company. As such, it will be easier to order internet, electricity, order furniture and ship your booth materials to and from the conference. The exhibit area will be in very large ballroom with the posters but will also feature refreshments, a lounge area and Wi-Fi for attendees. We anticipate that the exhibit hall will be the central gathering area for all attendees attending the conference.  Exhibitors will also be able to submit their preferences for their booth space using the Exhibit Hall Floor Plan.

The fee for reserving the exhibit space includes one (1) registration for exhibit personnel. You may register up to three additional personnel at the rate of $250 each. All exhibit personnel must be registered for the conference to gain access to the exhibit space.

Each pipe and draped space will come equipped with a 6’ skirted table, two chairs, a waste basket and an ID sign. The space does not need to be staffed during exhibit hours but the safety and security of the items displayed are your responsibility. See below for exhibit hours; at the conclusion of the exhibit hours each day, the room will be locked.

2014 Fall Research Conference Affiliate Receptions

The 2014 APPAM Fall Research Conference will be held Thursday through Saturday, November 6–8 at the Hyatt Regency Hotel and Albuquerque Convention Center. If you have any questions about any of the above information, please contact Jocelyn Mason, 202.496.0130 ext. 203.

If your institution intends to host a reception or meeting during the conference and would like to utilize space in the Hyatt or Albuquerque Convention Center, please be aware the process for reserving this space has changed. APPAM will arrange all room set up, catering, and AV orders with the hotel and convention center and will assign space for each group, based on expected attendance and order of request. If your institution plans on holding a reception, please be aware that space will only be available on Friday, November 7. APPAM holds its own Welcome Reception on Thursday, November 6 and will not assign any space opposite that event.  

IMPORTANT To reserve space for an affiliate reception, please fill out this form and return to Jocelyn Mason. Space will be assigned and communicated to you for marketing purposes. Should the size of your event change, APPAM reserves the right to reassign your event to a room that is closer to expected attendance, based on final RSVP numbers.

For receptions on Friday, November 7: The APPAM Presidential Address is on Friday from 5:00–6:00 pm and is followed by the Presidential Reception from 6:15–7:45 pm. These events will be held at the Albuquerque Convention Center. We will assign space for affiliate receptions at the Hyatt Hotel first, unless otherwise requested. Receptions CANNOT begin before 6:00 pm.  

As mentioned above, all room set up, catering, and AV orders will be placed through APPAM. You will be sent menus with a request for your food and beverage order once you room has been assigned. All food and beverage, and AV orders must be submitted directly to APPAM by September 15. All billing will be handled by APPAM.

You will receive a cost estimate for your reception after your food and beverage order has been placed. We require a credit card number when the order is placed. An estimate of charges will be sent to you; you will then be expected to provide payment by check or credit card by October 30. The provided credit card will be charged for the estimated charges by October 30, if you do not pay the estimated charge by check. If your final bill is higher than the prepaid charges because of onsite additions or higher than anticipated bar charges, we will bill you after the event. If the additional charges are not paid by Friday, November 21st, the provided credit card will be charged for the difference.  

APPAM will print an announcement of your reception for free in the final conference program book, as long as you grant permission on the provided form. This is a service we offer only for APPAM institutional members.  

If you have any questions about any of the above information, please contact Jocelyn Mason, 202.496.0130 ext. 203.
