AASV Technical Tables Exhibit
The "Tech Tables" technical service promotion at the American Association of Swine Veterinarians Annual Meeting offers a premier opportunity for commercial technical representatives to exchange information and interact with swine veterinarians from around the world.
The 2017 AASV Annual Meeting will be held February 25 - 28 at the Hyatt Regency Denver in Denver, Colorado, with the exhibit taking place on Monday and Tuesday, February 27 and 28. We expect over 1000 attendees, including 600+ swine veterinarians and more than 100 veterinary students. Typically, 20-25% of AASV meeting attendees are from outside the United States, with registrants from as many as 30 countries. The primary function of the meeting is to provide continuing education to swine veterinarians. Non-veterinary attendance is limited to AASV Affiliate Members, veterinary students, invited speakers, and Technical Table representatives.
More than 80 companies participate in the AASV Technical Tables display each year. These include pharmaceutical and biological companies, equipment manufacturers, genetics and seedstock suppliers, nutritional and feed ingredient companies, technology systems providers, and industry publications. This year's exhibitors are listed here.
The 2017 Technical Tables exhibit will take place according to the following schedule:
- Receive table assignments/Set up
- Monday, February 27 7:00 am - 9:00 am
- Technical Tables exhibit open
- Monday, February 27 9:00 am - 5:00 pm
- Tuesday, February 28 8:00 am - 12:00 noon
Each participating company is provided with a 6-foot, draped table from which to distribute information and visit with the meeting registrants. As in the past, material presented on the table is limited to scientific, educational information that will best inform practitioners about each company's products and services. Booths, overhead or vertical banners, and tabletop displays are not permitted, nor is selling of product from the tables. We feel this modest approach to the commercial trade show provides a level playing field for all participants and allows the event to concentrate on education and information, in keeping with the nature of the meeting.
Given the low-key nature of the exhibit, most exhibitors do NOT require electricity or Internet service, and they are not provided. Should you require the use of electricity or Internet service, you will need to contract directly with PSAV (electricity) and/or SingleDigits (Internet) to arrange for service at your table.
Register online (credit card payment) OR submit the registration form by mail (check payment). The Tech Table registration fee of $2100 per table includes the draped table and chairs as well as meeting registration for up to 3 company representatives named on the application. Registration must be completed by October 31, 2016 to ensure the listing of your company name in the printed program booklet. Exhibiting companies will also be listed and linked on the AASV Annual Meeting website, and will be invited to supply a company logo and 50-word description for the conference mobile app.
The 3 Tech Table registrants listed on the exhibit registration form are welcome to attend any of the scientific sessions beginning Sunday noon through Tuesday, and will receive tickets for Monday's luncheon and evening awards reception and Tuesday's breakfast. In addition, Technical Table representatives may register for the pre-conference seminars on Saturday and Sunday by paying the seminar registration fee(s).
In addition to the three representatives included on the exhibit application, up to three more representatives may also register for the meeting as "Additional Tech Table Representatives" at http://ecom.aasv.org/annmtg. Any additional representatives beyond these six total are eligible to register ONLY if they meet the usual attendance criteria (i.e., must be a veterinarian, veterinary student, AASV Affiliate Member, or invited speaker).
The name badges, meal tickets, and proceedings for your representatives will be available for pickup (under their individual names) at the AASV registration desk in Denver.
