The exhibit hall schedule will be finalized in Spring 2018. See the exhibitor schedule below for an idea of the general overview.

Booth Inclusions & Cost

ACVO's booths are considered 'table top'. Each booth space is smaller than a typically 10x10 space, to accommodate more vendors in smaller facilities. An exhibit booth is no wider than 8' and no deeper than 6' (encroachment is NOT allowed and those in violation will be asked to dismantle their displays)

Each booth includes:

  • Attendance for two exhibitors
  • 6' table, two chairs and a small trash can
  • Daily vacuuming/trash emptied
  • Carpet, table drape, *pipe & drape
  • One copy of conference proceedings book

Tables, pipe and drape, carpet and additional chairs do not need to be purchased. Vacuuming is provided by the hotel at no additional fee to the vendor. *Pipe and drape is to be provided through a third party vendor and may vary some years.

  • Standard 8'x6' booth: $1,150
  • Prime 8'x6' booth: $1,250 (located in high traffic and high visible area)

Additional fees may include: power, internet capability, shipping/receiving (hotel box handling fee), additional exhibitor badges, and/or labor costs through drayage vendor.

Limitations

Please note that exhibit booths typically sell out by early May annually. Be sure to register early!

Attendees

Even during these financially trying times, the ACVO conference has continued to maintain and even increase attendance numbers. Over the last several years the meeting has increased to average 750-850 registered attendees. With an additional 140 technicians (AVOTS), 100 vendors and 50 registered guests, the conference typically hosts 850-900 people.

Sponsorship

When registering, please take a look at our sponsorship opportunities. All levels are available, most levels receive generous recognition both pre-conference and onsite. Review our sponsorship policy as of 2015, which gives priority placement to current sponsors and exhibitors.
