Dear Exhibitor,

Welcome to the online Exhibitor Services Manual for the MEDICAL LIBRARY ASSOCIATION EXHIBITS, May 19 - 22 at the Philadelphia Marriott in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. This website is for participating exhibitors in the MEDICAL LIBRARY ASSOCIATION EXHIBITS. Within this site, you will find everything you need to successfully participate in this exhibition. Show Management has lined up a team of industry professionals to make your exhibit experience a smooth process. Please take the time now to review this site carefully. It will save you TIME and MONEY.

If you can't find what you are looking for, try the Search function (found in the upper left menu.) If you still need assistance, email us using the "Not finding what you need?" button (lower left).

The Official Contractors / Order Forms section contains order forms for all Official Service Contractors. Show Management has contracted out to a selected group of companies the responsibility to perform the various tasks needed to set up, operate and dismantle the exhibits. It is to your advantage to choose the Official Contractors as provided in this Online Exhibitor Manual. Official Contractors maintain a presence on-site, providing trained technical staff to support your needs. Show Management does not associate with any company other than those chosen as the Official Contractor.

Important: The Philadelphia Marriott exhibit hall has recently undergone a renovation. One benefit of this renovation is more available exhibit space. As a result of this renovation, the ceiling height in the exhibit hall has been lowered to 10'6".

Due to these ceiling height limitations, Standard Exhibit Booths will be permitted to a maximum height of 8'3", and Perimeter Wall and Island Exhibit Booths will be permitted to a maximum height of 10'. Hanging signs and cross-aisle booth signage are not permitted in the Exhibit Hall. Please take this info account as you design your exhibit. For more information, review the Exhibit Guidelines and Regulations in this manual.

If you use an Independent Contractor for your exhibit set-up & tear-down, please notify Hall-Erickson, Inc. and GES Exposition Services in writing. Exhibitors must also ensure that their independent contractors submit a general liability certificate of insurance before they will be allowed to perform work on the show floor.

If you have any questions regarding the services, rules and regulations, or if you need further assistance, please contact us at 630/434-7779, email: You can always click on the "Not finding what you need?" button in the left side of this site to submit a request for assistance.

Thank you for your participation. We look forward to seeing you at the MEDICAL LIBRARY ASSOCIATION EXHIBITS!
