EXHIBIT HALL INFORMATION AND OPPORTUNITIES

GENERAL INFORMATION AND BOOTH OPTIONS:

  • Are you a company that sells adaptive equipment for the blind or visually impaired?
  • Are you an agency or entity with resources or information of particular interest to ACB members?
  • Do you represent a guide dog school?
  • Do you operate a business that sells items that would be of interest to our members?
  • Are you an ACB affiliate or special interest group with items to sell?

If you answered "yes" to any of the above questions consider being a vendor at the 2017 ACB Conference and Convention at the Nugget Casino Resort in Sparks, NV

The exhibit hall will be one of the most popular places at the 2017 ACB Conference and Convention.

As an exhibitor, you will give people from across the United States and from many foreign countries the opportunity to learn about your products and services. Turn browsers into buyers as attendees give technology a trial run, check out new tutorials or crafts, or shop for products for home, school, work and play.

ACB MARKETPLACE:

  • Are you an entertainer or author with CDs or books to sell?
  • Do you sell crafts, cosmetics, toys, etc?
  • Is your affiliate looking for a fundraiser?
  • Do you have information to distribute before a specific general session?

If you answered "yes" to any of these questions, but you just can't handle the long hours in the Exhibit Hall or you will only be at the convention for one or two days, ACB's Marketplace is just for you!

Located near the ACB Café and general session, Marketplace is in one of the highest traffic areas in the conference and convention. Open before each general session begins (see schedule below), Marketplace will be filled with something new and exciting every day.

Your Marketplace "booth" will include a draped 6-foot display table and two chairs. Space is limited and tables will be assigned on a first come, first served basis. Tables are $25 each, and you may reserve space for one or two days only; specify the days you prefer when registering. Sorry, but no food items may be sold at Marketplace.

Online registration for Marketplace is not available because space is limited. To reserve your space, contact Michael Smitherman by email at exhibitors@acb.org or by phone at (601) 331-7740.  

Marketplace schedule:
Saturday, July 1: 5:30 PM - 7:00 PM
Sunday, July 2 through Thursday, July 6:  7:30 AM - 10:30 AM
