A limited amount of space is available for PLATINUM and GOLD SPONSORS to set up table-top displays. The Vaccinium Symposium will not be selling exhibitor options. If you would like to showcase your company to our audience, please be sure to sign-up as a Platinum or Gold level sponsor.

  • PLATINUM level sponsors will receive TWO 6' x 24 x 30h tables draped and skirted, and two chairs.
  • GOLD level sponsors will be receive ONE 6' x 24” x 30”h table draped and skirted, and two chairs.
  • Tables will be identified with a tent card, to easily see which table is assigned to your organization.
  • Sponsor table top displays will be set up in the Majestic Palm Foyer of the Sheraton Lake Buena Vista Resort. The Majestic Palm foyer is directly outside of the meeting room providing numerous opportunties to network with participants.
  • Table top displays are meant to serve as a forum to display informational materials so a representative does not need to always be at the table. If you want to interact with attendees, the times that would be most effective to do so are during early morning refreshments, and daily breaks.  Please refer to the agenda for break times.
  • Anyone attending the symposium must be a full registrant. If someone is just coming in just to set up the table display, and leaves, they do not need to register.
  • We expect roughly 250 people to attend the symposium if you wish to bring informational materials sufficient for all attendees.
