Your HFES 2017 Annual Meeting exhibit or tabletop will be seen by hundreds of attendees, who are interested in products and services that help them in their work. Past attendees have reported visiting the Exhibit Hall multiple times and are purchasers or recommenders for a wide range of products.

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.
