Exhibitor 1:1 Meetings

The show floor is busy. It can be tough to find times to connect with exhibitors you want to meet with. If you’re not sure a 10-minute conversation on the floor will be enough, schedule an Exhibitor 1:1. These meetings are held off-hours and will give you more serious facetime. Book meetings with participating exhibitors beginning May 1st.

Innovation Tour

Each year our exhibitors bring the latest and greatest products. This year, we’re adding an Innovation Tour, complete with perks and prizes. Year after year, attendees express that one of their favorite things about the Symposium is learning about all the new products available, and we can't what for you to see what 2019 has to offer!
