ASHG Priority Point System for Ancillary and Exhibitor Events


Due to the limited availability of meeting space in the convention center during the lunch period Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday, commercial companies submitting an ancillary event application will be charged a fee of $5,000 per event. 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 and May 20
  • 1 point per year for having an ancillary event through ASHG for each of the previous three years (2013, 2012, and 2011) 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.
