Additional Expo Only access is available to purchase/register with a $100 fee per additional expo only participant as a subsequent registration to the main registrant.

There is limited space available for exhibitors. We encourage you to register as an exhibitor as soon as possible to secure a spot at this year's event.

As an Exhibitor, you will receive two registrations - one registrant will have full access to the conference, the other will access the Expo only. Exhibitors must register for the Conference. The Exhibitor who will have access to the conference should register the secondary exhibitor by adding an additional registrant. All badges will be available for pick-up at the registration counter. For security reasons, you will be required to always wear your exhibitor badge.
