The 2016 ASM Biodefense and Emerging Diseases Research Meeting (February 8-10, Arlington, VA) will unite the individuals carrying out the research to defend against the growing threat of bioterrorism with the decision makers shaping the future biodefense research agenda, recognizing that emerging infectious diseases serve as a paradigm for handling the public threat of bioterrorism.
Magnify your exposure by exhibiting at one of the most important biodefense meetings in the country!
The ASM Biodefense Exhibits is an integral part of the scientific program and is designed with many exhibit hall attractions including: refreshment breaks, poster sessions in and around exhibits to ensure traffic flow in the exhibit area and the ASM Biodefense Welcome Reception held on the first night of exhibits, Monday, February 8, 2016 in the Exhibit Hall. New for 2016, ASM has also added a Welcome Lunch and Poster Viewing Reception in the Exhibit Hall to create more networking opportunities to enhance the overall exhibit experience.
