Exhibition

We are seeking expressions of interest to exhibit at the Trade Exhibition of ComBio2020.

The exhibition and conference will be held in the brand new extension of the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre. The meeting rooms and exhibition hall in this new extension are in very close proximity to each other, which will enhance the exhibition and meeting.

The program is designed so that registrants are encouraged to visit the trade area at all times whilst not in scientific sessions. The trade exhibition bumps in on Wednesday, 30 September 2020 with a "Welcome Mixer and Opening of Trade Exhibition" function to be held that evening. The exhibition bumps out after the lunch/poster session on Friday, 2 October 2020.

Incentives to encourage registrants to stay in the exhibition hall include:

  • Lunches will be served in the exhibition hall for each day of the exhibition.
  • Morning and afternoon teas will be served in the exhibition hall on Thursday with morning tea on the Friday (as above, exhibition bumps out after the lunch/poster session on the Friday).
  • Dedicated poster sessions and "poster teasers" prior to the poster sessions will be held in the exhibition hall for each day of the exhibition.
  • We will be running a "Passport" competition – where all registrants are handed a "Passport"” when they register. They need to get their passports stamped by all exhibitors to be in the running for great prizes. This competition does encourage registrants to "cross the line" and visit your booth.
  • The conference will hire significant furniture (tables, chairs, ottomans etc)to be scattered around the exhibition hall to encourage registrants to stay in the area.
