No advertising material used by the exhibitor may contain the sponsor's logo or meeting logo (unless given written permission from AGU and Sponsors), nor may it bear any reference to a real or implied endorsement by the sponsors.

Who should exhibit: People working in academic institutes, government agencies, consulting firms, and the commercial sector (teachers, contractors, authors, consultants, and students) who will review the latest issues and studies representing the Earth, atmospheric, oceanic, hydrologic, space, and planetary sciences and interact with meeting attendees to gather ideas and geophysical research needs in their related scientific disciplines.
