Flexible Exhibit hours - Your table will be reserved for you the entire weekend, but it is your choice to use it when you please, and spend as much or as little time there as desired.

  • Tables:

●        Emory facilities are providing tables & chairs to exhibitors free of charge.  

●        Table dimensions are 6 feet x 2.5 feet.

●        You may have to share a table with another exhibitor, depending on the total number of exhibits.

●        You must bring your own tablecloth or covering, as Emory is unable to provide tablecloths and the tabletops are sturdy but not visually appealing.

ANYTHING to the walls to protect them from damage. However, feel

  • Listing of HOTEL ACCOMODATIONS close to Emory can be found on the website (
  • There are many Cafeterias & Food Courts on Emory’s campus close to the School of Medicine. The closest food venue is in the Dobbs University Center (DUC) which is behind the School of Medicine. We are requesting that people eat at those locations and not bring food or drink into the lecture and exhibit areas.
  • There will be a Printed Program available at the event for all attendees
  • This is a FREE festival. There is no registration required for people to attend. Please encourage friends, family, and social groups to attend.



We hope you plan to attend many of the speaker sessions. The best approach would be to bring at least one other person with you so that they can go to sessions which particularly relate to your good work. In that way, you can connect with many more people and organizations, and increase your odds of making valuable connections and contacts. We also are encouraging speakers and attendees who are looking for volunteer opportunities to visit the exhibit area.
