Booth Points

The APSS utilizes a point system to determine exhibit space assignments.

Points are calculated based on the amount of support contributed during the 2016 calendar year.* Support includes:

  • Exhibit and Sponsorship Fees
    (e.g. SLEEP Meeting, Sleep Medicine Trends)
  • Advertisements (e.g. Preliminary & Final Programs, Mailing List Rental, Journal SLEEP, Journal of Clinical Sleep Medicine)
  • Educational Grants, Contributions and/or Donations made to the Associated Professional Sleep Societies, LLC, American Academy of Sleep Medicine, Sleep Research Society, American Sleep Medicine Foundation or Sleep Research Society Foundation.

$1,000 = 1 Point

Exhibitors will earn one point for every $1,000 contributed.


To benefit from your points, please send your applications for exhibit space and sponsorships with payment by February 1, 2017. Applications received after February 1, 2017, will not be assigned booth space based on points.

Booth points are also earned by submitting your SLEEP 2017 exhibitor application and sponsorship application and payment by January 18, 2017 (the early-bird submission deadline) – PLUS the booth points will count towards SLEEP 2017 and SLEEP 2018!

The following items also count towards SLEEP 2017 and SLEEP 2018 booth points if they are submitted by the early-bird submission deadline:

  • Sleep Medicine Trends 2017 Exhibitor & Sponsorship Applications
  • 2017 Advertising Insertion Orders (Ads in the Journal SLEEP and the Journal of Clinical Sleep Medicine


ACME Sleep Supply submits their SLEEP 2017 exhibitor application and payment by February 1, 2017; they are eligible to utilize their accumulated points from 2016 towards their 2017 booth placement:

2016 Total Commitment for SLEEP 2017        $11,650 (11.65 points)

*Exhibitors with the most points will have priority. The date of receipt of an application will be used in determining booth assignments: 1) in order to break a tie in points or 2) to determine priority of space for applications received after the deadline.
