For your convenience, the AANS will once again provide an online interactive exhibiting tool. This software provides real-time viewing of the exhibit floor and denotes locations of exhibiting partners. Busy attendees can pre-plan their valuable time by searching exhibitor locations by company name, booth number, or product category. In addition you now will have the ability to email the exhibiting companies' contact to set-up an appointment.

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.
