The AFP Exhibits Team wants to make sure that exhibitors are informed and fully equipped with the resources they need for a great exhibiting experience in San Diego!

We will review helpful tips to guide exhibitors through their booth planning process including: the Exhibitor Service Kit, Exhibitor Portal, important upcoming AFP and vendor deadlines, and the check-in process for outside vendors.
