For the seventh year in a row, we are pleased to provide an opportunity for up to twelve (12) organizations to showcase innovative new technologies. Each organization will have 5 minutes to describe their product or service.

The Virtual Exhibit Hall will be a space where companies share information about their products and services, showcase their latest innovations, and connect with research collaborators and customers.

In 2020, we are offering several options:

  • Lunch sponsorship opportunities where you provide information about a topic of your choosing.
  • An opportunity to have a Powerpoint ad visible during breaks.

Why Virtually Exhibit?

  • Support the efforts of the Symposium to bring innovative ideas to the environmental monitoring community during this time of international crisis.
  • Develop new prospects through your individual exhibitor page.
  • Increase your visibility and contact opportunities through extended exhibit times.
  • Raise the profile of your organization and the work you do!

Exhibition Schedule: Monday, August 3, 2020 through Friday, August 21, 2020 via our Virtual Exhibit Hall.
