» DIGITAL (VIRTUAL) BOOTH ENHANCEMENT
Make the most of your online promotion – you update a digital listing through EXPOCAD which is an easy and flexible way to promote your company. Our attendees use “My Expo” to create a shopping list using an interactive floor plan to research and plan their trip to the exhibit floor. Your digital booth can offer product/service information, sales contacts, video feeds, brochures, links to your website, and more. Draw attendees to your booth before they set one foot on the show floor by using digital booth enhancements! Upgraded Digital Booth options here.

» EXHIBITOR CE SPOT – FREE
Formerly called the Pitch Lounge, we’ve not only changed the name, we’ve changed the location and the presentations too. Now, the Exhibitor CE Spot is the place where exhibitors can share their dental knowledge and Star of the North attendees can pickup some free CE Credits.
The Spot will be the place to be on Saturday, April 29 10:00 am – 1:00 pm. The Spot will be where the Table Clinics were on Friday. It is in the Cafe area up the ramp off the 100 aisle in the hall. And we’ll set it with chairs, a podium, microphone, a flat panel video screen and some speakers. Each participating company will have a 15 minute time slot to present their topic. A schedule of companies and presentation titles will be printed on a sign in the Spot and published in the Onsite Program so attendees can stop by when they are interested. These presentation opportunities with be reviewed by the Star of the North Scientific Sessions Committee who’ll select the top 10 topics. All topics MUST merit CE Credit. To put your hat in the ring or be on the Spot: complete the Exhibitor CE Spot form.
