2016 Fall Research Conference Exhibit Space

APPAM will offer all organizations the opportunity to exhibit at the Washington Hilton 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 access to meeting space, refreshments, a lounge area and charging areas for attendees. With its central location, 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.

The 2016 Exhibitor Kit is available here.

2016 Fall Research Conference Affiliate Receptions

Space will be available for institutions wishing to host a reception at the Washington Hilton during the conference.  APPAM will assign space for each group, based on expected attendance and order of request. Each organization will work directly with the Washington Hilton for all catering, room setup, and AV requests.  If your institution plans on holding a reception, please be aware that space will only be available on Friday, November 4th. APPAM holds its own Welcome Reception on Thursday, November 12 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 Tristanne Staudt. Space will be assigned in early August 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.  All reservation forms must be submitted by July 29, 2016

For receptions on Friday, November 4th: 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.  Receptions may not begin before 6:00 pm.  

As mentioned above, all room set up, catering, and AV orders will be placed directly through the Washington Hilton. Once space is assigned, a representative from Hilton will contact you with a request for your food and beverage order.

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.
