Exhibit Space Assignment

The order in which space is assigned will be based on approved sponsorship funds as of Friday, June 21, 2013, starting with the preferences of the highest Diamond Sponsor.
Booth spaces for non-sponsors will be assigned on a first-contracted/paid, first served basis following the assignment of space for all other sponsor companies. Every effort will be made to accommodate requests for booth assignments. PHA reserves the right to make changes to the floor plan of booths as may be deemed necessary at its sole discretion. Booth assignments for companies that have signed contracts and paid the exhibit fee will be communicated by Friday, June 28, 2013.
Nonprofit organizations may purchase one booth space at a 50% discount. Booth exchange is available under special conditions. If you are interested in a booth exchange, please contact Exhibitors@PHAssociation.org.
