Exhibition, Satellite and Affiliated Events

Exhibition and Satellite applications are now OPEN

Exhibitions, Satellites, and Affiliated Events are official conference activities designed and hosted by independent commercial and non-commercial organizations.  Exhibitions and Satellites take place in the conference venue, whereas Affiliated Independent Events typically take place in another location near the venue.  Exhibitions and Satellites are tailored to for-profit companies and large-budget entities such as foundations, donors, and governments.  Community and non-profit organizations are encouraged to explore the Global Village for low and no-cost exhibiting opportunities.


Affiliated Events

Affiliated Independent Events include a number of different activities including meetings, symposiums, forums, cultural events, galas, performances, etc. These events are approved by the AIDS 2016 conference organizers, are outside the conference venue and are held at times that do not conflict with the conference programme.

Symposium: Children and HIV: Equity Now! Reaching all children in the epidemic

Hosts: The Coalition for Children Affected by AIDS and The Teresa Group
When: 15-16 July 2016
Venue: Southern Sun Elangeni and Maharani Hotel, Durban
Registration deadline: 24 June 2016
With the epidemic still negatively affecting such vast numbers of children, adolescents and families, how do we ensure that we include those most in need, those most often missed, forgotten, or excluded—those who aren’t benefitting from traditional policies, funding and programming? Visit the official symposium site for more information. 



Exhibition Booths are paid physical spaces in the Exhibit Hall.  They are typically used to showcase products, services, or the work of an organization.  Exhibit Booths cost between USD 5,000 and USD 11,000. Exhibition applications close May 3, 2016.



Satellite sessions take place in the conference center, but are fully organized and coordinated by the organization hosting the satellite. Conference organizers make satellite slots available for a fee, based on the room capacity and the time slot, and will allocate slots based on the overall conference program. The program committee will review the contents and speakers of the satellite sessions to ensure that they meet the scientific and ethical principles of the conference.  Non-commercial satellites cost between USD 5,700 and USD 18,000.  Commercial satellites can cost up to USD 80,000. Satellite applications close April 11, 2016.
