We will be performing site maintenance on AAOS.org on October 28th, 2021 from 9:00 – 11 PM CST which may cause sitewide downtime. We apologize for the inconvenience.

Exhibitor Badge Registration

Online exhibitor badge registration is open and allows exhibiting companies to:

  • Add names within their company’s allotment. Exhibitor badges are complimentary if registered by August 30.
  • Make complimentary name changes/badge exchanges for badges previously submitted.
  • Review and print a list of registrants and badges picked up.

New for 2021: Exhibitors may register a maximum of four representatives for each 100 square feet of exhibit booth space. There will be no additional badges provided or sold over this allotment.

Exhibitors may select from three methods of badge distribution:

  • By mail - U.S. addresses only
  • On-site pickup by designated contact who then distributes badges to their staff.
  • On-site express badge pickup by individual booth personnel by scanning their bar code.

NOTE: Children under the age of 16 are not allowed in the exhibit hall.

Health and Safety Entry Requirements

Exhibitors from the United States must provide proof of vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test result within 72 hours of the first day of arrival at the Annual Meeting to attend. International exhibitors will only be allowed if fully vaccinated.

Save time and pre-verify your vaccination status using the simple and secure online portal powered by Safe Expo.
