BOOTH SETUP & STAFFING
Please be sure to have your space set up before the Welcome Reception, held in the exhibit hall this year on Wednesday, October 6 at 6:30 p.m.

While we prefer that you stay in the exhibit hall through the end of the show on Saturday at 4:00 p.m., we will not penalize you if you decide to leave earlier. If you choose to leave sooner, please make sure it is no earlier than 1:00 p.m. on Saturday. When possible, the same applies to staffing your booth during the meeting’s daily show hours.

While we have relaxed the rules this year, knowing many of you could not send as large a continent as in past years, your presence is highly valued and appreciated!

2022 BMES ANNUAL MEETING
BMES will be revamping the sponsor and exhibitor program next year. This will include a points system for booth space selection. We are also beginning discussions on next year’s meeting format, so a prospectus will not be available until January 2022. Staff plans to be fully transparent in this process and will be in touch in the New Year.


Thank you again, and we are looking forward to being with you this week!
Please note: because of the truly hybrid nature of this year’s event, we can’t honor any late or on-site registrations.
