The best way to guarantee an exhibit space at the 2017 ICEA US-China Business Matchmaking Summit is to become a sponsor. Sponsors have first priority, so if the hall becomes full, no individual exhibit tables will be sold. After September 1, if spaces are not filled, they will be made available for $750.
