Exhibiting at IDLS2013

A successful foundation of IDLS has been the Exhibition Packages. The exhibition stands are the exhibitors’ “venues-within-the-venue” to highlight their capabilities and products, but they are also the anchor meeting places for all delegates for 3 uninterrupted days. Anyone wishing to exhibit at IDLS2013 can find more information in the Exhibitors Information area of this website or by downloading the Exhibitors Information Pack.
