The 2016 ACWA Spring Conference Exhibit Hall will be located at Portola Hotel & Spa while the Monterey Convention Center is being remodeled. ACWA has worked with the hotel to design an exhibit hall that will be as large and as accessible as the previous exhibit halls at the Monterey Convention Center. Due to the size of the De Anza Ballroom, we have expanded the exhibit hall to include the De Anza Ballroom Foyer and the Portola Hotel & Spa Lobby. The Lobby of the Portola Hotel & Spa will also house the ACWA Conference Registration. The foyer and lobby booths will have lots of constant traffic. These two areas are considered high traffic areas. There will be extra security to protect those booths not located in the De Anza Ballroom at night. ACWA staff is working hard to make sure all of our exhibitors have a successful conference with plenty of opportunities to network with conference attendees.

Exhibit Booth space is assigned on a first-come, first-served basis, as complete applications and payments are received.  A confirmation e-mail with information regarding how to register booth personnel, order furniture, electricity, and internet; and reserve hotel rooms will be sent after Exhibit Space Application & Contract is received and processed.

Exhibitor Technical Presentations

Exhibitor Technical Presentations are made available to Conference exhibitors only.   
Exhibitors may request to schedule one technical presentation during the Conference. The number of slots is limited to eight and presentation assignments are based on appropriateness of content as determined by ACWA. After time slots have been filled, there will be a waiting list. Confirmed Exhibitor Technical Presentations will be listed in the Conference Program.  
ACWA does not provide a 'topic list', but requires that presentations are 'technical' in nature and relevant to the membership at large.  Presentations are typically diverse and in the past have ranged from regulatory and compliance measures, to scientific, solar, and fleet management.  
Exhibitor Technical Presentation Requests will be forwarded with Exhibitor Confirmation Information.
