ASM Exhibits, an integral and vital part of ASM's Scientific Programs, traditionally occur at each of its two annual meetings: the General Meeting in the spring and ICAAC (Interscience Conference on Antimicrobial Agents and Chemotherapy) in the fall. There are also three smaller Exhibits programs: the Biodefense and Emerging Diseases Research Meeting, the Annual Conference for Undergraduate Educators (ASMCUE), and the Annual Biomedical Research Conference for Minority Students (ABRCMS).
The floor plans for all Exhibit Halls are designed to ensure maximum traffic for exhibitors. At the General Meeting and ICAAC specifically, the floor plans include poster sessions during the lunch hours, an attendee lounge with complimentary refreshments, the very popular Publisher's Park, food courts, and various other traffic generators according to the specificities of the hall such as an educational theatre. ASM markets its Exhibits to 46,000 scientists, physicians, and other healthcare professionals throughout the year. Exhibits are promoted in various publications prior to the show, advertising is available in the Exhibit Guide and exhibitors and their booths appear on the General Meeting and ICAAC web pages.
An Exhibit Prospectus is published approximately nine months before each meeting. Detailed demographics of previous shows, a list of previous exhibitors, and information on booth rental and fees, activities and events, attendance, sponsorships, and other marketing opportunities are included.
