Notice of Meeting and Invitation to Exhibitors
We are writing to extend an invitation for you and your company to join the Michigan Association of Blood Banks for the 65th Annual Scientific Meeting to be held on September 11 and 12, 2019. The meeting and vendor displays will once again be at Schoolcraft College in Livonia, Michigan. This community college boasts an award-winning culinary arts school, as well as a new meeting center with state-of-the-art presentation equipment. This is our 15th year at Schoolcraft College and everyone enjoys the food and the facilities.
The fee for the exhibit space in lieu of corporate dues is $550.00. This fee includes one table (8ft) and one electrical outlet. Additional tables, if available, will be an additional $50.00. Additional electrical power, if needed, is available and must be requested through the coordinator. Wireless internet service is available in the exhibit area. Please note on the exhibit application if you need any other special requirements for your booth.
As an exhibitor, you can attend the annual meeting and bring as many representatives as you need. We will provide two lunches for each day of the meeting. Lunches must be reserved when you reserve your booth so that we may have a correct head count for the meals (see Exhibit Application Form). You can order additional lunches if you wish to invite other representatives to attend.
The fee for the Corporate membership is $600.00. This includes all the exhibitor benefits, in addition to receiving all member mailings and one complimentary advertisement in the on-line MABB publication “In A Different Vein.”
There are many intangible benefits of participation with the MABB. Your corporation and its products will be exposed to over 200 professionals active in the blood banking community throughout the state, including technologists, specialists, supervisors, lab managers and physicians. The MABB is one of the oldest and most prestigious state blood banking associations in the country, dedicated towards advancing high standards of administrative and technical performance through educational programs and professional resource sharing. By participating with MABB you are showing support for your customers and an interest in their educational advancement in the field of transfusion medicine.
