The Trade Show also begins Monday morning and runs through Tuesday evening and will feature over 130 exhibitors. The trade show hours and technical programs hours never overlap, so all attendees and exhibitors can enjoy the entire show. A buffet lunch will be served both days on the show floor along with another buffet during both evening receptions. The buffet food is included in the registration. New in 2017 also is attendees will be able to buy drink tickets in advance for the evening receptions on the show floor.
