Housing Alert

NTI exhibitors are advised to only book NTI 2013 housing reservations in Boston through Convention Housing Management (CHM), the official AACN/NTI housing service, at (800) 340-1840.

In the past AACN has received reports of unofficial housing services contacting NTI exhibitors without AACN approval. AACN cannot guarantee hotel reservations offered by nonofficial, unauthorized vendors.

Please confirm your NTI 2013 hotel reservations with CHM to be sure you have confirmed housing for NTI 2013 in Boston.

Exhibitors Wishing to Earn Continuing Nursing Education (CNE) Contact Hours

The reduced NTI 2013 registration fee for exhibitor personnel seeking CNEs is $350 for AACN members and $450 for nonmembers.

The reduced fee is limited to two representatives per 100 square feet of exhibit space and is intended for those whose primary responsibility at the NTI is to staff a booth and who wish to earn CNEs at NTI educational sessions.

Please make sure you indicate on the attendee registration form that you are an exhibitor and that you qualify for the reduced exhibitor rate.

Media Opportunities

Members of AACN’s nursing community enjoy a variety of news about NTI from nursing and healthcare media. If your company plans to conduct media outreach to support your participation at NTI, your PR professionals may wish to connect with the AACN Communications team.

We’ll help you with access to on-site media opportunities and, when appropriate, incorporate your news into the overall media plan for the conference and exposition. See the Exhibitor Media Information Sheet for contact information and details about NTI media efforts.

New Promotion & Advertising Packages

NTI exhibitors can combine NTI 2013 conference support opportunities with either NTI shuttle bus advertising or CriticalCare eNewsline advertising options and enjoy savings of $4,000–$18,000.

You build your own package by choosing any two of the following: CriticalCare eNewsline electronic ads (banner or skyscraper ads), NTI shuttle bus ads (entrance side panel or back panel ads) and/or select NTI sponsorship opportunities.

Review the Promotion & Advertising Package Fact Sheet and contact Randy Bauler at (800) 394-5995, ext. 366, to explore the best package combination for you.
