One of the most exciting areas at FGS conferences is the large exhibit hall featuring the latest software, books, maps, databases, and gadgets on the market for genealogists and family historians, as well as information about genealogical organizations. Door prizes, demos, presentations, special activities, and networking opportunities add to the reasons the exhibit hall is a constant hub of activity.

The grand opening is scheduled for Thursday morning immediately following the Keynote Session. Attendees will gather for a catered lunch in the exhibit hall on Friday and a special Exhibit Hall Only event on Saturday morning.
