The exhibition will run for the duration of the conference with morning tea, afternoon tea and lunch served in the exhibition area. The welcome reception will also be held in the exhibition area.  Exhibition sites are located in the Marble foyer (Pod stands only) and throughout the entire Banquet Hall (mix of Pods and Standard sites).

Site Selection: You will be asked to enter your top three preferences when booking your site.  Sponsor exhibitors will have first choice of corner sites.  If a corner site is unsold by the time of the conference it will be offered to standard exhibitors in order of time of booking.

Flooring: Sites in the Marble foyer will be on polished concrete.  The Banquet Hall is made up of polished timber or blue carpet.  See floor plan for more information.

Pod booths are smaller exhibition structures better suited to those exhibitors without equipment or products to display.  Such as university exhibits.  There are limited Pod Booths available and they are marked on the exhibition floor plan in specific places were a standard booth would not fit.  The Pod sites are located at 29, 30, 31, 32, 33, 34 & 35.  Pod display packages are only available for these sites.
