Visit the Vendors!

We are always working to identify ways to increase traffic in the exhibit hall. With that goal in mind, AAPM/COMP will host the Visit the Vendors program again this year at the 2011 Joint AAPM/COMP Meeting. All exhibitors will be invited to participate and will have to respond YES or NO by June 15th to be included. If an exhibitor does not respond, that company will not be included.

Here’s how it works:

  • Attendees will have the opportunity to win one of three registrations for the 2012 AAPM Annual Meeting in Charlotte.
  • We produce VISIT THE VENDORS cards listing an equal number of exhibitor company names and their booth numbers on punch cards. The number of unique cards generated depends on the number of exhibitors who agreed to participate.
  • Exhibitors are listed on the cards based on the information provided on their original space application in regards to associate and competitor proximity requests.
  • A VISIT THE VENDORS card will be given to each scientific meeting registrant at Registration when individuals pick up their meeting materials.
  • Attendees are instructed to VISIT THE VENDORS listed on their specific card.
  • Participating exhibitors will be given a hole puncher in order to punch their company name on an attendee’s card.
  • It is up to you to determine how much time the attendee must spend at your booth in order to have their card punched.
  • The objective is for the attendees to VISIT THE VENDORS listed on their card AND acquire a hole punch.
  • A card must be complete in order to be eligible for the drawing.
  • Once a card is complete, the attendee will drop it in a box located at the main entrance of the Exhibit Hall.
  • The drawing and prize announcements are scheduled for Wednesday August 3, during lunch time at 12:30 PM in the Exhibit Hall – winners do not have to be present to win.

Whenever we come across a mailing that appears to have used our list, we check to see if we have sold a label to the sending company and that we have a sample on file. If we can't confirm that we sold labels for that mailing, then we start asking questions.
