Why Exhibit at ACS National Meetings & Expositions?

ACS will organize two national meetings and expositions in 2016. We anticipate that each meeting will attract more than 10,000 chemists, chemical engineers, academicians, graduate and postdoctoral students, and other related professionals.

During the meeting, scientists present multidisciplinary research, hear the latest information in their areas of interest, and network with other scientists. Programming is planned by our 34 technical divisions, which cover all scientific fields, and our secretariats, which focus on multidisciplinary programming. Each meeting features more than 9,000 presentations organized into technical symposia that highlight important research advances.

Exhibiting at the ACS National Exposition

The ACS National Exposition is an integral part of each meeting and presents a unique opportunity to interact with over 12,000 scientific professionals from all chemical disciplines. Each ACS National Exposition features approximately 300 exhibiting companies in more than 450 booths. ACS membership, publications, and other staff units create a vibrant ACS booth cluster in the middle of the show floor, and attendee services, such as Internet access, laptop accessibility, prize and souvenir booths, seating, and concessions, are all additional traffic builders at each Exposition.

As an ACS exhibitor, you will interact with enthusiastic scientists who are eager to learn more about your products and services. In our aisles, you will encounter prospective customers (the people you want to meet), as well as existing clients (the people who look forward to seeing you). Our members tell us that they visit the Exposition to explore products and services that will help them to improve R&D, business, and laboratory operations and to investigate new technologies and techniques in instrumentation, laboratory equipment, software, hardware, publications, analytical, and R&D services. Exhibiting at ACS also provides your company with access to other U.S. and international suppliers of business-to-business products and services.

Exhibitor Programs for Interacting with Attendees

Only ACS exhibitors are permitted to interact with our attendees through our exclusive advertising and sponsorship program. ACS offers a wide range of exhibitor programs designed to assist you to attract and educate your target customers during our shows:

  • Meet chemists in certain specialties by participating in the meeting’s research and social components alongside ACS technical divisions and committees.
  • Attract new customer leads by ensuring that your company is visible at the show through pre-show communications, advertising in meeting programs, Info2Go literature displays, sponsorships, booth giveaways, and other promotions.
  • Further your existing relationships with your current customers through hosting workshops that emphasize new applications, customer appreciation events, private viewings of new products, advertising and sponsorships opportunities, and other networking activities.
  • Explore your competition in a non-threatening environment, and develop business-to-business contacts and valuable partner-supplier connections.
