The AANS would like to thank our members for their continued support and interest in patronizing 2013 AANS Annual Scientific Meeting exhibitors. There is added value to the meeting experience when companies present quality products and services addressing the needs of neurosurgical professionals. The partnership is equally beneficial. Registration fees at the annual meeting would be considerably higher without the income generated from exhibitor participation. In return, exhibitors gain increased exposure to a highly targeted market. Please set aside dedicated time in New Orleans to visit with exhibitors and let them know you value the partnership.
