ASHG Priority Point System for Ancillary Events



Due to the limited availability of meeting space in the convention center from 12:30pm-2:30pm, Wednesday through Friday, ancillary event applications will be charged a fee of $5000 and assignment of space will be allotted based on a point system as outlined below.  First assignment is based on the highest score. 


  • 2 points for application arrival between April 1 and April 30
  • 2 points for submitting exhibit contract prior to April 4 (priority deadline for exhibiting companies)
  • 1 point for application arrival between May 1-20
  • 1 point per year for having an ancillary event through ASHG for the previous three years (2012, 2011, and 2010) for a maximum of three (3) points in this category.


The maximum score for any application is eight (8) points.


For event organizers scoring the full amount of points, placement will be decided by exhibits priority points – whichever organization has the most points will receive priority.
