1. Emory facilities are providing tables & chairs to exhibitors free of charge.
2. Table dimensions are 6 feet x 2.5 feet.
3. You may have to share a table with another exhibitor, depending on the total number of exhibits.
4. You must bring your own tablecloth or covering, as Emory is unable to provide tablecloths and the tabletops are sturdy but not visually appealing.
No electrical outlets at tables. While you may be lucky enough to find a table beside one of the few outlets in the exhibit area, please to not plan to have access to one at your table. If you would like, you may bring a laptop or rechargeable electronic that you may recharge during low traffic times. Electrical outlets are available at every seat in SOM rooms 110, 120, and 130, so feel free to attend presentations while charging your electronics! There are also outlets available in all of the small meeting rooms in SOM, which are available on a first come, first serve basis.
Due to the risk of balloons getting lost in the high ceilings at Emory, facilities staff has asked that we not bring any helium-filled balloons.
Emory has asked that we do not attach (tape, staple, tack, etc)
ANYTHING to the walls to protect them from damage. However, feel
free to attach anything you wish to the tables & chairs.
While the deadline has passed for making your books available through the Emory bookstore…You are welcome to sell books or other items independently at your exhibit table

ATTENDING SPEAKER PRESENTATIONS:
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.
