Starting today, the  Exhibit Hall (Halls B-H) will be open to showcase the latest GI products and services. Here is a floorplan and complete list of exhibiting companies.

Exhibit hours are 10 a.m.–4 p.m. Sunday through Tuesday. In addition to visiting booths, take some time to participate in the activities taking place in the hall:

  • Flickr Photos: Have your photo taken with a beautiful San Diego backdrop. All photos will be uploaded to Flickr, an online photo sharing service. Visit www.flickr.com/photos/ddwmeeting/ to find your photo and share it via e-mail, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and more. The photo station is located in Hall F, near the ASGE Store.
  • Complimentary Snacks: Each afternoon at 2 p.m., DDW will provide a complimentary snack.* Visit the exhibit hall to get a different treat each day, including  tortilla chips and salsa (today), snack mix in Asian, traditional and spicy flavors (Monday) and frozen fruit bars and ice cream novelties (Tuesday).
  • Surf-n-Snack Zones: Take a break, check your e-mail, meet up with colleagues or just relax for a while at one of the four Surf-n-Snack Zones.  These dedicated areas in the exhibit hall offer free WiFi service, as well as plenty of seating in the close proximity to concession outlets in the exhibit hall. Supported by Abbott.
  • Exhibit Excursion: This year, more than 50 exhibitors will be participating in the Exhibit Excursion game. A game  card will be in your registration bag. To play, just visit with the participating exhibitors, answer a simple question and turn in your game card at the DDW Theater. Prizes this year could include eBook readers, iPads, MP3 players, or free registration and housing to DDW 2013. If you don’t play, you won’t win!
  • Bistro DDW: Located in Hall H, Bistro DDW is a premier dining option that saves time and allows attendees an opportunity to sit down to a plentiful lunch.  It provides the largest variety and best value for lunch in the convention center.  Bistro Tickets cost $24 each, are good for one lunch and can be used on any of the days that Bistro DDW is open now through Tuesday, 11:30 a.m–2 p.m. Get your lunch faster by purchasing meal tickets online when you register for DDW.
  • Product Theaters: Six companies will conduct product demonstrations beyond their booths. View the Product Theater schedule on DDW’s website, or search for presentations with MyDDW and add them to your personal itinerary.
  • ASGE Learning Center: The ASGE Learning Center provides DDW attendees with the opportunity to view endoscopic videos and interactive CD-ROMs for free, as well as attend hands-on demonstrations. The ASGE Learning Center is open now through Monday, 8 a.m.–5 p.m.
  • Satellite Symposia:  These educational programs are held before or after DDW scientific sessions and are hosted by exhibiting companies.  Some offer CME credit to participants.  These sessions are not part of the DDW program. View the Satellite Symposia schedule.

The support of exhibiting companies funds many aspects of DDW and helps keep the cost of your attendance down. Please support them by visiting their booths.

Enjoy your time at DDW!
