What is AUSA and Why Attend?
AUSA brings together civilians, Army active members, reserve, guard, and it is one of three key communication platforms employed by the Army. It aids in educating and informing the government and general public on key issues affecting the Army including veterans affairs, academics, civics, and Army leadership. Events include access to over 700 exhibitors, seminars and panel discussions including topics such as national security and family planning. Attendees also have the opportunity to participate in hands-on demonstrations of the latest technology and understand the services attending public service.
Exhibiting Advantages and How to Show your Brand Best at AUSA 2019
AUSA 2019 will bring over 30,000 attendees according to AUSA official website. 29% are senior level management, over 100 countries represented. The new technologies are just one small sector of the exhibitor profile. Financial planning, housing, and other services for civilians do very well at this show since the majority of attendees are nonactive military. Depending on your brand or service, we recommend certain booths over others in Washington DC.
Technology and Defense Contracting Related Exhibits
Technology and larger defense contracts, we recommend larger exhibits. The tech and defense exhibits often require demonstration space, conference room, and multiple areas of lockable storage. Our designers generally recommend a 30 x 50 exhibit for AUSA. Some of our clients include the Department of Homeland Security and Norwegian Conglomerate Naatic.
Civilian or Non Active Military Service Exhibits
If you are selling a service or looking for a sale that does not require demonstration, but attention, we recommend an exhibit that is linear or an island configuration. Linear exhibits offer places to sit and the large mural wall can project a brand platform easily. An island configuration in a 20 x 20 exhibit space offers so much flexibility, you can have a bar, two seating configurations, multiple banner stands, and overhead signage.
Exhibit Experience has delivered exhibits to AUSA dozens of times and we understand what works and what does not on the trade show floor. We guarantee that our exhibits will meet trade show and industry standards, and exceed your standards.
