ANNUAL AFMS SHOW

Currently, the main activity of AFMS is facilitating a measurement short course and exposition each spring. Our speakers are comprised of equipment manufacturers, industry experts, and end users who incorporate their varied experiences to discuss measurement equipment, problems, and solutions.

Based on feedback from measurement professionals, exhibitors & attendees, AFMS 2017 will be a full 2 day show.

A general schedule is available here; details on specific training, hands on & lectures will be finalized by Jan. 31, 2017.

GENERAL EXHIBITOR INFORMATION

AFMS 2017 will be a full 2 day show.  Please see schedule for specifics.

AFMS 2017 Existing Exhibitor Registration will open October 15, 2017. 

Booths that are not paid for by the payment deadline (January 31, 2017) for existing exhibitors will be released to companies on the wait list on a “first come, first serve” basis on February 20, 2017.

AFMS members & vendors that have previously exhibited at AFMS are given priority on booth rental and events. Final booth placement determination will be made by the AFMS committee based on show need.

Each booth is 8’ deep by 10’ wide and includes a company ID sign, (1) 2’x6’ covered & skirted table, (2) chairs and a wastebasket, and  5amps (500 watts) of electrical power. Additional furnishings, electrical power, etc. must be ordered directly with Clark Services.

We appreciate your efforts to distinguish AFMS from a table top show by incorporating graphics, banners, professional displays, etc.  If your exhibit is confined to tabletop items, a company graphic/backdrop is required to be displayed along the back of the booth. Individual products on table are not permitted without graphics/labels for identification.

 

Monitoring (1) session is part of your Exhibitor responsibilities. Please email [email protected] with the name of the person from your organization who will monitor a session.

 

AFMS will have door prize drawings at the end of each day of the show.

 

Vendors are encouraged, but not required to have a door prize.

If you plan to provide a door prize for the end users attending the show, please limit door prize values to a maximum value of $150.00 including taxes per vendor and have receipt at show for verification.

FIREARMS WILL NOT BE ALLOWED AS DOOR PRIZES
