ACS 248th National Meeting, San Francisco, August 10-14, 2014, Chemistry and Global Stewardship
Last chance to exhibit in the small business row in San Francisco
You can still get a small business expo booth for San Francisco at the highly-discounted rate of only $500. Normally, this offer includes a fully-furnished 10 ft. x 10 ft. standard booth, admittance badges for two booth personnel, as well as a full registration for the technical sessions. However, at this late date, the SCHB booth being offered is not furnished, so you would need to also add carpeting, chairs, and a table from the show vendor. This discounted booth at the ACS Expo is a member benefit available only to SCHB members. Now is the time to indicate your interest for the 2015 ACS Expos in Denver ( March 22-24 ) and Boston (August 16-18). Contact Anis Rahman
