Although exhibits are not a major focus of the AMEN conference, we encourage ministry-minded organizations to have a booth. The AMEN program committee attempts to provide ample time and exposure to make it advantageous for you.
Although we have never had reason to deny an exhibitor in the past, space is limited and the AMEN board of directors determines final approval of all exhibit submissions. You will be informed within 10 business days if there are any concerns with your booth or it is not approved. If, for any reason, your booth is not approved, you will receive a prompt & full refund of your registration fee.
Exhibits will be in both a portion of the Santee Ballroom, which is adjacent to the general sessions, and in the foyer outside the general session room. Some of the locations are identified as ‘premium spaces’ because all attendees entering the general sessions will pass by those booths. Therefore, AMEN is selling specific spaces this year on a first-come-first-serve basis. When you register as an exhibitor you will see a note to select your booth space. Click on that link and a diagram will appear showing available & sold spaces. Note: Only the type you have selected (premium or regular) will be able to be selected. If you want to reserve a different type, simply click ‘cancel’ which will return you to the registration form and select the alternate booth type then click on the link for the diagram again.
If you have questions please contact Rebecca Barnhurst at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Exhibitor pricing starts at $500 and $550 for AMEN Members and $600 and $650 for non-members for regular and premium booths respectively. This fee includes full registration for one person including their meals and attendance to all meetings. Exhibit assistants can register at the guest rate of $250 (which will include full conference registration & meals).
Each exhibitor will have approximately 8 feet of space, a 6’ covered table and two chairs. There is no curtain backdrop or piping separating the spaces. Please be considerate of the exhibitor next to you
Access to electricity at your booth space is included in the price. However, you will need to bring your own extension cords, etc.
Official setup time for exhibitors is noon to 3:30pm on Thursday 10/26/17 and teardown needs to be completed by 11:00am on Sunday 10/29/17.

AMEN’s mission is to restore Christ’s ministry of healing to the world. As Seventh-day Adventists we believe Sabbath is a day of worship and rest. We also believe Christ wants us to work for, and glorify Him on the Sabbath. Therefore we ask exhibitors who choose to be at their booths on Sabbath to view it as a time to forward the work of The Lord of the Sabbath. Please refrain from any commercial activity during Sabbath hours. Thank you!
The hotel and/or AMEN are not responsible for the safety of your equipment, materials, etc. at your booth. Therefore please decide what you are comfortable leaving out and what you need to take back to your room and lock up at night or during other times you may not be at your exhibit. We certainly do not anticipate any problems but want to remind you that safety is your responsibility.
