Can exhibit staff attend educational sessions?
There is only one good: knowledge, and one evil: ignorance. In an effort to combat this evil, we've included educational session vouchers for each registered exhibiting staff. Not enough? Pop on over to our registration page (registration opens March 7, 2017) and give the gift of an All Access pass.
