Exhibitor housing is now open! Go to www.aacn.org/exhibitorhousing and be sure to book early. After April 10, 2017, reservations are subject to availability. Exhibitors who cancel room reservations on or after April 20, 2017 will forfeit their first night's room and tax deposit for each room canceled. If you have any questions, please call Convention Housing Management, the official AACN Housing Bureau, at 800-340-1840.
Please be aware of unauthorized email solicitations from non-official vendors offering housing options for NTI 2017 in Houston. AACN has not approved these emails or given these companies your email address. We strongly encourage you to make hotel reservations with Convention Housing Management.
ExpoEd — Education on the Exhibit Floor
NTI exhibitors can offer education on the exhibit floor through ExpoEd activities, which apply concepts and principles about patient care and clinical practice. Activities use a variety of formats — for example, live and multimedia presentations, computer-assisted self-learning and hands-on demonstrations — and must adhere to the high standards of AACN’s educational plan. ExpoEd presentations may discuss your company's equipment, products and services. Nurses can earn continuing education recognition points (CERPs) toward their AACN certification renewal for these approved educational activities on the show floor. Videotaping of ExpoEd sessions is not allowed without the prior written consent of AACN. Application information is posted at www.aacn.org/expoed. If you have questions, please contact Chelley D'Amato at 800-394-5995 ext. 269 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Sunrise Sessions — Corporate-Supported Satellite Symposia
Sunrise Sessions provide your organization with a unique opportunity to host an exclusive educational session Tuesday, May 23 or Wednesday, May 24, from 7-8:30 a.m. These popular breakfast sessions are designed and planned by a corporate sponsor, from selecting the educational topic and expert presenter to determining the size of the audience. AACN offers NTI attendees (CERPs) for Sunrise Sessions. CERPs are an AACN designation for nurses to fulfill continuing education requirements to maintain AACN certifications and are similar, but not equivalent, to a CNE or CME contact hour.
Apply before Nov. 14, 2016, to receive great benefits, including a $2,000 savings on your Sunrise Session fees, a priority time slot and greater exposure for your session by being included in NTI promotional materials. If you are interested in sponsoring a Sunrise Session and would like to discuss the benefits, please contact Susan Flynn at 800-394-5995, ext. 511 or email email@example.com.
For sponsorship opportunities please contact Randy Bauler, CEM, at 800-394-5995, ext. 366 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
