6. What is the difference between the Government Poster Session and the Vendor Fair?
The purpose of the Government Poster Session is for government agencies and organizations to showcase their projects. Subcontractors may be asked to support Government Poster Sessions in the capacity of discussing the work provided on a given project. The Government Poster Session is not a marketing opportunity for private industry, and as such, no corporate marketing materials will be permitted (e.g., general services posters, flyers, logos, or other marketing or outreach media).
The Vendor Fair is offered as an opportunity for private industry to conduct marketing and outreach activities while at the conference. Companies can share projects, general services, and other company-specific information for the purpose of creating awareness about their capabilities. Corporate banners, posters, and other marketing and outreach media are encouraged and permitted.
