FGS invites its members to set up tables in its 2016 Conference Society Showcase.  In addition to regular Exhibit Hall booths, Society Showcase tables are gathered in one area of the Exhibit Hall for the great price of $30. Handouts may be offered, but no sales are permitted. 

All Society Showcase participants will be featured in conference promotional material, especially the Onsite Conference Guide and the Conference Voice blog.

Don't know if your society is a member? Search the FGS Member Network on the FGS website to find out. If your society or organization wishes to participate in Society Showcase but is not a member of FGS, join FGS today! 

Conference details are available on the FGS Voice blog. In the meantime, if you have a question, please contact the Society Showcase Coordinator.
