2021 Sponsor and Exhibitor Resource Center

Sponsor Tiles and Exhibitor Tiles on the Virtual Conference Platform

Expected to launch week of May 17

Christine Emmons will be reaching out to all sponsors and exhibitors to confirm company name and logo as you want it to be displayed on the Virtual Conference website. She will ask for the names of all individuals who will be appointed "managers" for your tile, who need access to build it and make changes as needed.

We anticipate that all sponsors and exhibitors can begin building their tiles in mid-May, and more information on accessing the back-end of the platform will be shared at that time.
