Vendor Cafe

Posted on September 15, 2017

The 2017 AMIA Conference is right around the corner!

The Vendor Café is scheduled for two days – Thursday, November 30th and Friday, December 1st.  Like last year, the Vendor Café will open each morning with a Conference Plenary and breakfast.  Thursday morning’s plenary will be the official opening of the Conference.  At the end of the plenary session, the Vendor Café will be officially open.  We’ll also offer a coffee service in the morning, the afternoon (on Thursday) and there will be our Café Reception on Thursday evening.

For the reception, attendees will receive a complimentary drink coupon courtesy of the Vendors. We had a good turnout at last year’s reception and hope we will again this year.  After the reception, attendees will head for Archival Screening Night.

The floor plan is in the final stages of approval. You will receive it once it is finalized.  Exhibit Booths include an 8×10 booth, a draped six foot table, and two chairs.  Please note information about your program listing in your materials.

Here’s the Vendor Cafe application.

If you are not already a sponsor, I encourage you to consider it.  AMIA’s projects and educational programs rely on our partners and sponsors.  I’ve included our sponsors packages information, but we have also developed a special Contributing Sponsor package only available to those exhibiting in the Vendor Café.

The Contributing Sponsor package includes your booth, a full registration to the conference, and other ways to increase your exposure to attendees.  :

  • One booth in the Vendor Café
  • One full registration AMIA 2017
  • Listing as a Contributing Sponsor on the conference website and in the Program
  • A 25 word profile of your company and logo on the sponsor page of the website
  • Included in Sponsor announcement emails to the attendees and membership
  • Your marketing collateral included in the AMIA 2017 conference packages

It’s a great location and a great program. We have a great room rate at our headquarters hotel – the Intercontinental New Orleans on St. Charles Street – and encourage you to book early!  Room rates are only guaranteed until October 23rd.

Remember – if you are an AMIA Institutional Member, you receive a $100 discount on your booth.
