Whether learning in meeting rooms or on the exhibit floor, attendees come to the Annual Conference because they know it delivers the biggest return for their investment. With a wide range of activities, the exhibit floor has become a great place for attendees to search for new products, explore upcoming titles, hear interesting speakers, meet emerging authors and examine peer poster presentations.
