Exhibitor Registration

The online portal for exhibitor registration will be available in January.

Exhibitors receive five complimentary badges per 10' x 10' booth space: two full-meeting access and three exhibit floor-only badges. Please contact Deneen if you haven't received your registration to your complimentary badges.  

Onsite exhibitor registration will be open Friday, April 26, through Wednesday, May 1, and requires a business card and government-issued identification.  

Badge information

ARVO issues exhibit-only badges only in the name of the company shown on the exhibit space application.  

Each representative of an exhibiting company must have an official ARVO exhibitor name badge to enter the exhibit area and must wear the name badge at all times while in the exhibit area. Exhibit-only name badges do not permit admission to scientific or poster sessions. If you are the First Author of an abstract accepted for presentation you must register and pay for an attendee badge. ARVO does not give complimentary badges to First Authors.

Exhibiting company attendees in excess of the allotment of five badges per 10' x 10' booth space will be required to pay $150 for exhibit-only staff or to pay full registration (scientific meeting) rate to attend the ARVO Annual Meeting.

Government-issued identification is required to pick up badges.

To facilitate the rotation of company personnel, up to two exhibit-only name badges per 10' x 10' space may be turned in at the exhibitor registration desk and new exhibit-only name badges will be issued for a fee of $25 each.

It is the responsibility of the authorized individual signing the exhibit space application to inform all company personnel of the rules and regulations contained in the Exhibit Prospectus.

Guest registration  

Exhibitors who wish to provide access to their exhibit space only for a non-registered meeting attendee on a one-time basis must apply for a pass from the exhibitor registration desk. Such passes will be provided at the sole discretion of ARVO Exhibit Management
