Companies that have exhibited or completed the Company Review Process in the last three years will have the Exhibit Prospectus and an Application for Exhibit Space sent to them on June 13. The Prospectus will also be available online at Until then, the 2017 Exhibit Prospectus will remain online.

Eligible companies (companies that have exhibited or completed the Company Review Process within the last three years) will receive access to the online Application for Exhibit Space on June 13, along with the Exhibit Prospectus. The application for exhibit space will need to be submitted with a 50% deposit of the booth fee by August 1 to be included in the initial group of booth assignments.

If your company has never exhibited at AAOS, you must first complete the Company Review Process before you can apply to exhibit. Once you have completed this process, you do not have to complete it again each year. More information can be found here.

Provided that AAOS receives your application and 30% booth fee deposit before the August 1 deadline, it should not be a problem to reserve any common booth size. One dimension must be 10’, 20’, 50’, or 80’, etc. to keep the aisles aligned. Other sizes might be possible with special approval, but they should be requested well in advance of the August 1 deadline to ensure that we have the time and flexibility of open space to consider them.

Exhibit space assignments will begin to be made immediately after the application deadline, and will be announced by August 21.

Exhibitors must book hotel rooms through AAOS’ official housing vendor, Wyndham Jade. Reservations for exhibitors will not be available until October. Exhibitors will receive additional housing information with their space assignments on August 21.
