Breaks are 30 minutes and exhibitors attend breakfast, lunch, reception and breaks. Exhibitors will also have the opportunity to visit with participants who attend the Technologist course. This course draws well over 100 Sleep Technologists and allied health professionals, including Nurses and Physicians.

All supporters have signage on their tables indicating the level of support as well as signage at the registration desk and special recognition on the conference brochure.

We hope that you will take the opportunity to participate both as an exhibitor and a supporter of The Southern Sleep Society.
