Exhibit Regulations

HFES 2017 Annual Meeting attendees report visiting the Exhibit Hall frequently to view the exhibits and catch up with colleagues over beverages at break times. Attendees report an interest in products and services that help them in their work, including the following:

  • Books and other publications

  • Eye-tracking and motion-capture tools and systems

  • Simulators (e.g., driving)

  • Usability-testing tools

Reserve online! The online exhibit/ad/sponsorships reservation site makes it fast and easy to book your booth, tabletop, advertising, and sponsorships. Online credit card transactions are secure.

Exhibitors receive a 10% discount on advertising! To obtain the discount, reserve your exhibit booth or tabletop at the same time you sign up for your ad or registration bag insert.

Enhance your visibility by reserving an Annual Meeting Sponsorship.

Exhibitor Benefits
By displaying your products/services at the Annual Meeting, you will be able to meet with Annual Meeting attendees during exhibit hall hours and during a special Interactive Posters Reception when all posters will be presented in a single session.

As an exhibitor at the HFES Annual Meeting, you can

  • Talk to potential buyers or recommenders.

  • Receive valuable feedback about your products or services from a knowledgeable audience.

  • Gain up-to-date information on current developments in the field that might help you improve your product or service by attending meeting technical sessions. Each exhibit booth comes with one complimentary full-meeting registration.

  • Attract prospective employees. Draw attendees to your booth and collect their contact information by offering a product or service in the Exhibit Hall raffles.

  • Invite non-attendee guests to view your exhibit at no charge during the meeting. Each exhibitor receives single-day guest passes.

For visibility beyond the exhibit hall:

  • HFES is offering exhibitors discounted advertising rates in the meeting program and the HFES Bulletin, as well as registration bag inserts.

  • HFES will include your exhibit in the HFES Annual Meeting Web site listing with a link to your site and your 55-word description.

  • Your exhibit will also be included in the Annual Meeting program — both print and mobile app.
