Page 276 - ASHG 2012 Annual Meeting Program Guide

The purpose of the exhibit program is to further the education of registrants by providing an
opportunity for exhibitors to present information on products or services relevant to registrants’
professional interests. In keeping with that purpose, sale and order-taking (entering into
a contract of sale) are discouraged on the exhibit floor and other related convention areas.
Registrants are encouraged to view the exhibits in the Exhibit Hall of the Moscone Center
during the following hours:
Wednesday, November 7:
am – 4:30 pm
Thursday, November 8:
am – 4:30 pm
Friday, November 9:
am – 4:30 pm
To assist in locating specific products and services of interest, a product and service index
appears immediately after the exhibitor listings. This index is organized alphabetically by
products/services, followed by names of exhibiting companies offering the product/services
and their respective booth numbers. Booth numbers also follow the names of the exhibiting
companies below.
