2017 Fall Research Conference Exhibit Space

APPAM will offer all organizations the opportunity to exhibit at the Hyatt Regency Chicago 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 the responsibility of the exhibitor. See below for exhibit hours; at the conclusion of the exhibit hours each day, the room will be locked.

Additional details including the exhibitor kit, move in/out schedules will be available in the coming weeks.
