Space Assignment Process RSNA Exhibitor Application will be posted online beginning March 26. RSNA will make the first-round space assignments based on completed applications received by April 25. Preference will be given to preferred exhibitors. RSNA will attempt to accommodate all exhibitor requests for specific booths/corner locations; however, RSNA does not guarantee that these requests can be granted. The exhibitor is not contracting for a specific booth(s), but rather for the right to participate as an exhibitor at RSNA. Applications received after April 25 will be assigned on a first-come, first-serve basis.
Space Assignment Point SystemExhibitors earn priority points based on the company participation history. Four priority points are awarded for each year a company exhibited with RSNA, beginning in 1996, for a maximum of 76 points. For companies with the same number of priority points, the date the application/payment was received by RSNA will be used to determine space assignment priority.
First-Time ExhibitorsFirst-time applicants will be reviewed by the Technical Exhibits Committee to ensure all products and services to be exhibited are appropriate for the RSNA Technical Exhibition. First-time exhibitors will be awarded the Preferred Exhibitor status and four seniority points.
