Virtual Trade Show

Virtual Vendors may choose to have the link appear either on the SICB 2014 Annual Meeting site prior to the event (1 October 2013, 31 December 2013) or on the 2015 SICB Annual Meeting site following the event (15 January 2014, to 15 April 2014). In either case, SICB will post a company or organization logo, a 50-word description of products or services offered, and a hot link to the Virtual Vendor’s website. Fees for Virtual Trade Show participation are as follows:

  • $150 US Dollars for commercial exhibitors;
