Exhibitor Information

Thank you for your interest in exhibiting, advertising, or sponsoring at WATESOL 2019! Your professional services provide a valuable resource for the attendees, and we are excited to include you in the program. Please read below for information about our conference and participating as an exhibitor, advertiser, or sponsor.

Conference Information

The Pryzbyla Center at Catholic University is located at 620 Michigan Ave NE, Washington, DC 20064. A campus map is available here. Parking will be available in a large surface parking lot next to the Pryzbyla Center for approximately $10.

We are pleased to have a new conference and exhibit space for this year’s event. The morning plenary, breakfast, and lunch will all take place in a large ballroom, with additional breakout rooms within the same space. Exhibitors will be set up directly outside the ballroom entrance for the convenience of our conference attendees. Throughout the course of the day, exhibitors can expect 200+ conference attendees to frequently pass through the Exhibitor Space -- which will maximize your table’s impact! In addition to visiting the Exhibitors before and after meals and sessions, conference attendees will be encouraged to visit Exhibitors during a dedicated afternoon time with coffee and refreshments.
