Please complete this brief form to secure your new booth space. Once your application is approved, your account will be created in our Exhibitor Portal where you can pay a deposit to hold your space and enter all information related to your booth.
We select Exhibitors based on how your organization plans to present valid science and engineering principles in a novel, fun, educational, engaging, captivating and hands-on interactive format.
