It has come to our attention that a company/or companies suggesting that they have an attendee list of the Institute of Navigation’s (ION) Joint Navigation Conference (JNC) is trying to sell that list. Please note that the JNC attendee list is a governmental secure list and ION does not sell nor distribute that list to anyone. It is possible that these list companies may have culled a partial list of contacts based on our online-published program and crossed referenced those with other known email lists, however these lists have not been verified or endorsed by ION.  As always, we recommend “buyer beware” when using lists obtained from any third party sources.

Register Your Staff

All exhibit personnel working your booth will be required to be registered for the full technical meeting or to purchase an Exhibit Hall Pass Registration. As part of the exhibit package, each company receives one full complimentary registration for the complete technical meeting with each 10' x 10' booth purchased.

Why We Charge for Exhibit Hall Passes

The goal of show management is to provide our exhibitors with the maximum amount of unopposed exhibit time possible, to maximize face-to-face networking between our exhibitors and their customers. We do this by offering all of our meals and refreshments in the exhibit hall – you will find morning and afternoon coffee and snacks served exclusively in the exhibit hall, as well as a daily lunch buffet.  These meal functions are included in the cost of your exhibitor pass.
