2015 Fall Research Conference Exhibit Space

APPAM will offer its institutional members the opportunity to exhibit at the Hyatt Regency Miami 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.

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.

New for 2015!  - This year we will feature various events including the New Member Reception in the exhibit hall.  For this reason, all exhibitors must be set up by Wednesday evening at 5:00 pm.
