Full details coming soon
All exhibitors and company representatives, including vendors entering the Exhibit Hall during exhibit and non-exhibit hours must have the appropriate badges.
If you need access to the Exhibit Hall outside of the approved times, a request must be submitted in writing to Stacey Chandler.
Exhibitors are permitted to attend the open (non-ticketed) scientific sessions, provided space is available. The scientific sessions are a separate forum from the promotional activities of the Exhibit Hall; therefore, exhibitors or company representatives attending educational sessions are expected to attend for the purposes of hearing the scientific information and not for the purposes of debate with speakers and other participants.
Although the ACR makes every attempt to accommodate all attendees, due to room size limitations, the ACR cannot guarantee a seat at any of the scientific sessions. In the event that room capacity is achieved, priority will be given to registered scientific attendees. Any attendee, including exhibitors or company representatives, displaying disruptive behavior during scientific sessions will be dismissed from the meeting.
Exhibitors interested in attending any of the ticketed sessions or receiving CME credit must register as a paid scientific attendee and purchase a ticket for the session.
Meetings and events organized by exhibitors held in conjunction with ACR Convergence are considered affiliate events. All events must be approved by the ACR. See details about ACR Convergence affiliate events.
The vendors below are the only vendors that have been approved by the ACR. This list will be updated as more vendors are contracted. If you have a question about whether a vendor is an official ACR vendor, please contact Stacey Chandler.
