SPONSOR AND EXHIBITOR PROSPECTUS
CBBS ANNUAL MEETING
CBBS | California Blood Bank Society
An Invitation to Participate… In April, the California Blood Bank Society is excited to host its 64th Annual Meeting. This year’s meeting will take place at the Hyatt Regency in Santa Clara and offers you an opportunity to reach a diverse group of professionals in Transfusion Medicine. CBBS is gearing up to provide you, our industry partners, with an ultimate experience and a great opportunity to connect with current and potential customers. The CBBS Annual meeting has a reputation that attracts all levels of professionals in blood banking and transfusion services, including key decision-makers. This reputation is built upon our interactive exhibitor’s hall, educational sessions and forums that focus on current and significant topics from subject matter experts, industry workshops and the best networking experience ever! And this year we’ve added an abstracts/poster session. Our exhibit hall provides attendees with an opportunity to meet with vendors and learn about the latest products and services geared toward improving their work environment. Recognizing the impact of cost on meeting attendance, we have modified our format to include two full days: Friday April 17 and Saturday April 18; reducing overall lodging expenses. We have also strategically placed the Annual Meeting near reliable public transportation, making easier for those that simply would like to commute in, making it easier to attend. We look forward to more CBBS members and non-members taking advantage of this opportunity than ever before. This amazing venue is an excellent opportunity for you to include a little vacation time. Come early, stay late…or both…and relax with the family. We hope you will take this opportunity to ensure your products and services are highlighted to this targeted audience. Reserve your space today. Also, please consider joining us as a Silver, Gold or Bronze level exhibitor.
