We are excited to extend these opportunities to you. Additional information on each program can be found below along with other important meeting information.

Upgrade your Exhibitor Listing

The exhibitor list is now posted with all of our premium exhibitor listing being featured at the top. You can view the listing here.

 

Those companies with premium listing will also be featured on our Mobile App (available in October). We've also added a new feature this year -- Exhibitor SnapShot. This feature will pull your listing banner image into an online slide show for attendees to view as a mini-billboard of your company's information.

 

You should have received your log in and password to begin updating your listing. If you have not, please contact us.

 

If you haven't signed up for a premium exhibitor listing, you still can! Full details on the program can be found here.

Exhibitor Product Theater Space Still Available!

Located in the South Building, Hall A, booth 3314 this unique opportunity provides exhibitors the ability to give attendees a chance to discover more of what their company has to offer. 

 

New for 2013:

  • Theater will be enclosed creating an intimate environment
  • Host will be available to assist with lead retrievals
  • Beverage service for attendees will be available 

In addition, presentations will be streamed live through the RSNA 2013 Virtual Meeting and will be recorded for on-demand viewing, enabling more exposure to potential customers who can shop and learn on their own time.

New Exhibit Booth Wi-Fi Guidelines 

As wireless usage has grown substantially, it has become increasingly difficult for wireless networks to operate consistently in a densely populated air space. We recommend that any device or connection within your booth be wired whenever possible, especially if being used to showcase or demo a product or service. Wireless networks may be unreliable, so to ensure the best possible wireless experience for everyone, we ask that you follow these recommendations:

  • Your wireless access point(s) must have adjustable power settings, set as low as possible
  • Set the channel to auto. RSNAnet staff may ask you to change, if necessary
  • Use one of the following wireless protocols: 802.11a/g/n. It is recommended to operate in the 5GHz band whenever possible due to limited availability in the 2.4 GHz band
  • Mount your equipment within your space as low as possible
  • Any directional antennas should be pointed into your space as to not interfere with surrounding areas 

RSNAnet staff will perform periodic checks on the exhibit floors to check for signal strength and channel usage. If any onsite changes are necessary, RSNAnet staff will contact you directly to discuss any required changes. If you have any questions on these new guidelines, please contact Joe Toman at 630-590-7714 or jtoman@rsna.org

Mobile Connect: Call for Presentations

Once again, RSNA will be coordinating a Mobile Connect area within the RSNA Services area in the Lakeside Center. This casual area, open environment will be available to attendees to learn how to maximize their smartphone and tablet in today's mobile world.

 

Mobile Connect will consist of two areas including a platform for one-on-one assistance with their device and presentation area highlighting applications for business and personal use. Exhibitor sessions will be the focus of Mobile Connect Theater on Monday and Wednesday.

 

Look for an email in early August, announcing a Call for Presentation.

 

If you have any questions on this program, please contact John Jaworski at 630-571-7855 or jjaworski@rsna.org
