Details on how to participate will be available soon. Please note that submissions cannot exceed 50 words and no marketing copy will be considered.
The deadline for inclusion is Friday, October 4. Please see last year's press release as a sample for your submission. If you would like to participate in this opportunity but not release specific details of your announcement, we can accommodate you.
Meeting space for media briefings will be available onsite for exhibitors who have secured meetings with the media. This space will be available for pre-reservation in half hour and hour increments.
