AALL plans popular events and feature areas to generate traffic throughout the Exhibit Hall.

AALL Member Services Pavilion & Activities Area

Always the place to be, the Pavilion is the destination for knowledge, networking, and everything AALL. AALL staff and the Executive Board assist members in maximizing their membership and conference experiences. Launched in 2016, the Activities Area features display boards about AALL committees, special interest sections, caucuses, and chapters for members looking to learn more about getting involved.

Poster Sessions

A popular draw since 2011, Poster Sessions offer attendees the opportunity to showcase their research during the conference and discuss their findings with attendees during the presentation period.

Exhibitor Showcases

The highly successful Exhibitor Showcases allow exhibitors to present their latest technologies to attendees. Redesigned this year, the Showcase sessions will now utilize meeting room space that will allow up to an hour of education and product presentation. Running throughout each exhibit day, the sessions are an important jumping-off point for attendees desiring a first look at technology from the range of exhibitors.

No-Conflict Exhibit Hall Times

Four-and-a-half hours of no-conflict Exhibit Hall time—featuring complimentary food and beverage (one reception, one lunch, and two breaks)—builds traffic and encourages interaction with exhibitors.

Complimentary Exhibit Hall Only Passes

The price of conference registration is not a barrier to visiting the Exhibit Hall; anyone may register for an Exhibit Hall only pass. Exhibitors also use these to invite local customers who may not be able to attend the entire conference.
