Booth Points

The APSS utilizes a point system to determine exhibit space assignments.

Points are calculated based on the amount of support contributed during the 2017 calendar year.* Support includes:

  • Exhibit and Sponsorship Fees
    (e.g. SLEEP Meeting, Sleep Medicine Trends)
  • Advertisements (e.g. Preliminary & Final Programs, Mailing List Rental, Journal SLEEP, Journal of Clinical Sleep Medicine)
  • Educational Grants, Contributions and/or Donations made to the Associated Professional Sleep Societies, LLC, American Academy of Sleep Medicine, Sleep Research Society, American Sleep Medicine Foundation or Sleep Research Society Foundation.
*To benefit from your points, please send your applications for exhibit space and sponsorships with payment by February 1, 2018.
**Exhibitors with the most points will have priority. The date of receipt of an application will be used in determining booth assignments: 1) in order to break a tie in points or 2) to determine priority of space for applications received after the deadline.

Example

ACME Sleep Supply submits their SLEEP 2018 exhibitor application and payment by February 1, 2017; they are eligible to utilize their accumulated points from 2017 towards their 2018 booth placement:

Sleep Medicine Trends 2017 Exhibit Space $2,500 (2.5 points)
SLEEP 2017 Exhibit Space $5,400 (5.4 points)
SLEEP 2017 Sponsorships $1,450 (1.45 points)
Transition Ad in the May issue of the Journal of Clinical Sleep Medicine $2,300 (2.3 points)

2017 Total Commitment for SLEEP 2018        $11,650 (11.65 points)

*Exhibitors with the most points will have priority. The date of receipt of an application will be used in determining booth assignments: 1) in order to break a tie in points or 2) to determine priority of space for applications received after the deadline.

Maximize Your Investment

Submit your SLEEP 2018 exhibitor and sponsorship applications and payment by January 17, 2018 (early-bird submission deadline) and the booth points will count towards SLEEP 2018 and SLEEP 2019. In addition, the following items will also count towards SLEEP 2018 and SLEEP 2019 booth points, if they are submitted by January 17, 2018:

  • Sleep Medicine Trends 2018 Exhibitor & Sponsorship Applications
  • 2018 Advertising Insertion Orders (Ads in the journal SLEEP and the Journal of Clinical Sleep Medicine

More often than not, booth placement towards the back of the Exhibit Hall is the result of two things:

  1. Exhibitor and sponsorship applications submitted after the early-bird deadline
  2. Low amount of booth points
Increase your points by sponsoring items at SLEEP 2018
