EXHIBITOR BOOTH CAMP

It’s never too early to gear up for a great event! Exhibitor Booth Camp is one of the best ways to prepare—especially with all of the new features and brand-enhancing opportunities planned for the 2020 expansion. There is quite literally more ground to cover than ever before, so attending has never been more critical to your success. After you get your booth assignment, you’ll have two opportunities to attend this year’s sessions: June 16 in Chicago and June 18 in Las Vegas. Make plans to attend in one of the locations to learn how to maximize your presence at AAPEX with visibility-boosting tools before, during, and after the event.

*Please note, we will be in touch on any changes to the event.

Check out this video of last year’s Exhibitor Booth Camp for inspiration and an in-depth look at the changes for 2020.
