In addition to our first rate speakers and topics, there are vendors who will be looking forward to meet you in the exhibit hall, while you are taking a break from classes.

There should be some great show discounts especially since they avoided the enormous expense of having to set up exhibits.

Any vendors missing who you feel should be participating? Sometimes your mentioning it to their national sales manager goes much further than our efforts. As with anything new the more conservative executives are skittish in investing in a different approach.

Hopefully we'll have a list of show discounts as they come in. In many cases, the discounts are worth many times the price of admission !!!!!!!!!!! I bought last year 10 Amniotic membranes and saved over $1500 off the list price as an example

Unfortunately, I cannot be around to participate in the webinars. However, I would like to be able to access the virtual exhibit hall and perhaps do some business with vendors.

Is there a charge for that access?

Thanks.

To take advantage of the Exhibit Hall you can register as a student to gain access. Make every effort to visit during the two live days on 1/20/18 and 1/21/18, Some vendors will have those show discounts only for the two days. others may extend them.

Some of the vendors will be interviewed on CEwir2018Live! during the show hours.They may come up with last minute show deals.

As Paul mentioned, if you register as a student, you can get access to the exhibit hall. But remember -- we don't submit to COPE for any one registered as a student (we thought that was a fair solution to the problem, for people who are either students, or can't use these credits. Fortunately that latter group gets smaller every year as state boards are waking up to the reality of online education.)
