VIP Invitations to the Critical Care Exposition

VIP invitations are available for you to send to your customers, prospective customers or special guests. We hope you will give them this complimentary admission to see your display and one of the leading healthcare trade shows.

Advance Space Selection

Watch your email in April for information on the advance space selection process. Based on priority points, technical, publication and nursing apparel exhibitors will be assigned appointment times Wednesday, May 18, to select exhibit space for NTI 2017 in Houston. We need to receive a completed NTI 2017 online application on or before Wednesday, May 18.

Online Service Kit

The Online Service Kit contains information for ordering exhibitor services such as booth furnishings, lead retrieval, electrical, Internet services, audiovisual, security and more.

Mailing Labels

If you are interested in ordering the preregistration attendee list, please use the Participant Mailing Label Order Form. NTI list rentals with the names and direct mail addresses of NTI registrants who opt to receive mailings will be available in late April. Email addresses and phone numbers are not available. Please note AACN requires advance review and approval of all mailings, and we require the use of a third-party mailing service to ensure one-time use of the seeded list. If you choose to rent the preshow attendee list, you’ll receive approximately 4,000 names of NTI nurses at a cost of $125/thousand names. Exhibitors are responsible for all printing and postage costs, along with the NTI 2016 list rental fees.

Quick Facts

The Quick Facts Form has important information, including NTI exhibit days and times, move-in/move-out days and times, shipping information and more.

Media Opportunities

Members of AACN’s 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. When appropriate, we’ll help you with access to on-site media opportunities and incorporate your news into the overall media plan for the conference and exposition. Access Media Information for Exhibitors for contact information and details about NTI media efforts.
