What's New This Year!
- The number of Complimentary Exhibitor Personnel Registrations received per 100 square feet rented has been increased:
- 2 Complimentary Full Registrations
- 1 Technical Exhibit Hall Only Registration
The Exhibitor Personnel Registration system will be open June 4, 2012. Exhibitors are allotted Complimentary Personnel and Technical Exhibit Hall Only Registrations based on booth size. Exhibitors may purchase additional Full Registrations or Technical Exhibits Only Registrations as necessary.
Please note: If you would like to have your personnel badges mailed to you prior to the start of the meeting, your registrations and payment must be complete by July 5. After July 5, you may still register your personnel but the badges WILL NOT be mailed – you will have to pick them up on-site. NO REFUNDS for Exhibitor Personnel Registration cancellations after July 5.
For registrations received by July 5 - the Exhibitor Contact will be mailed a company packet via UPS containing personalized envelopes for ALL exhibitor personnel. The personalized envelopes will contain the name badge, badge holder, and social function tickets.
IMPORTANT: In order to make personnel registration changes on site, a badge MUST BE EXCHANGED for the new badge generated or FULL PAYMENT will be required.
Self-Assessment Modules (SAMS) & Audience Response Units (ARU)
Compilation of two Self Assessment Modules (SAMS) per year is a requirement for the Maintenance of Certification (MOC) process as defined by the American Board of Radiology (ABR). AAPM/COMP program organizers have identified sessions in Diagnostic and Therapy Physics to be offered with audience response technology at the joint meeting in 2012.
Number of SAMs sessions is to be determined.
- These sessions will allow those who require MOC to fulfill their SAMs requirements.
- Credits for these sessions are available only to attendees who pre-register for the modules.
- No SAMs registration will be offered on-site in Charlotte.
- SAMS are available to Exhibitor Weekly (complimentary & paid) - not Hall Only.
- $10 fee for this item.
Please note that SAMs sessions are open to everyone, but only those pre-registered for the audience response technology will be eligible to receive an interactive response unit. Questions will be asked during the SAMs sessions, and participants must answer electronically in order to receive certification. There is no pass/fail. The idea is to assess knowledge gained during the session.
Please call 508-743-8511 to add SAMS & ARUS to an Exhibitor registration.
No Refunds for Exhibitor Registration cancellations after JULY 5.

The NASCAR Hall of Fame opened its doors in May 2010 with 150,000 square feet of history, 50 hands-on exhibits and nearly 1,000 artifacts. No need to be a hard-core NASCAR fan to appreciate the 31 meticulously maintained automobiles spanning seven decades, or to discover how downforce and drag impact the car and driver. The museum is adjacent to the Charlotte Convention Center; a convenient walk down a hallway from where sessions will take place.
Dinner and conversation with colleagues will take place in the Crown Ballroom, just across from the NASCAR Hall of Fame. (Menu to be posted soon.)
Please note: Each adult Night Out ticket will include 1 drink ticket, good for beer or a glass of wine. Once your ticket is used, cash will be accepted. Nonalcoholic drinks will not require a ticket.
