APIC 2018’s exhibit hall is dedicated to infection prevention, showcasing innovative products and services from more than 270 companies.

Why Exhibit?

Exhibit at APIC 2018 to access more than 2,500 infection prevention professionals with buying power. APIC provides exclusive exhibit hall hours offering uninterrupted networking time. Workshops and educational sessions are not scheduled during these times, eliminating any competition to the exhibit hall. APIC has condensed exhibit hours to keep traffic high and the need for additional exhibit staff low. Collect quality leads from dedicated infection prevention and control professionals who are passionate about learning and improving their facilities with your products. APIC provides complimentary lunch in the hall for attendees so they don’t have to leave the convention center. This allows them to maximize their time spent with exhibitors.

For your convenience and to keep costs lower, APIC uses a housing service for its attendees and exhibitors. Please do not contact the hotels directly. Hotels cannot make reservations in the APIC block; reservations must be made through the housing service. Special APIC 2018 rate deadlines are individualized per hotel. Please refer to the housing chart. The APIC Housing Bureau is accessible through the APIC website: www.apic.org/ac2018.

The APIC 2018 Meet Minneapolis Housing Department is part of Meet Minneapolis (Minneapolis’s convention and visitors bureau). It is the ONLY official housing service for the APIC Annual Conference and is handling all hotel reservations for the conference. Any communications coming from Meet Minneapolis Housing Bureau will be from @minneapolis.org or identified as APIC 2018—Minneapolis Housing Bureau.

Please do not give your credit card information or make reservations with any other housing service, housing company, or convention housing appearing to represent Meet Minneapolis, the Minneapolis Housing Bureau, APIC, and/or the APIC 2018—Minneapolis Housing Bureau.

These companies, frequently based out of Las Vegas and going by names such as Exposition Housing, Expo Housing Group, Convention Housing, etc., appear to offer lower rates for hotel rooms and are a SCAM. We are not able to verify the authenticity of such companies, and will not be able to provide resolution to issues related to such reservations.
