Badge Information and Registration

All exhibitor representatives are required to wear badges while in the exhibit area. As an exhibitor, your company is entitled to four complimentary convention registrations per regular 10’ x 10’ booth purchased (or two complimentary registrations per employer booth purchased). These badges may be “swapped” among representatives as long as the exhibitor notifies the staff at the Exhibitors’ Registration Desk of the changes. Any additional representatives must pay the non-member (or member when applicable) convention registration fee.

Each exhibitor is encouraged to register representatives in advance. Exhibitors will be able to register their representatives online in advance of the meeting beginning in April 2014 as well as onsite during the APA convention. Representatives registering on site must register at the Exhibitors’ Registration Desk. The Exhibitors’ Registration Desk will be located in the APA Conference Registration Area located in halls D & E of the Walter E. Washington Convention Center.

The Exhibitor Registration Desk will be open from 8 a.m. Wednesday, Aug. 6, until 12 p.m., on Sunday, Aug. 10.

For faster access to the exhibit hall, or to receive the badge/s and a copy of the Convention Program prior to convention, we suggest that the exhibiting company’s contact register their booth staff no later than July 2. After July 2, badges, badge holders, Convention Program and Convention Program Supplement will be distributed at the Exhibitors Registration Desk.

Guest Passes

On Sunday, Aug. 10, the exhibit area will be open to exhibitors’ invited guests and authors. A limit of five guest passes per booth on Sunday, Aug. 10, may be obtained by exhibitors from the exhibitors’ registration desk. Exhibitor guest passes are valid only for distribution to exhibitors’ guests. The exhibitor’s guest must show a driver’s license and turn in a major credit card. Their major credit card will only be returned when the exhibitor guest badge issued is returned. For any exhibitor guest badge not returned, the corresponding credit card will be charged the nonmember registration fee. Exhibitors with guests attending on any other day (other than Sunday) will have to use one of their allotted complimentary registrations for the visitor or pay the registration fee.
