Important Dates

Exhibit Hall and Learning Center

This year, more than 200 companies will show case their products and services at the 2018 AANS Annual Scientific Meeting. The health care industry is rapidly changing; visit the exhibit hall to learn about new technology that is available and evaluate the most up-to-date devices and services, all in one convenient place. Registration fees at the meeting would be considerably higher without the income generated from exhibitor participation. Please set aside dedicated time to visit with exhibitors, and let them know you value their participation at the meeting.
