Exhibition Information


Meeting Location

ISHLT2020 will be held at the Palais des Congrès de Montréal, 1001, Place Jean-Paul-Riopelle, Montréal, Quebec, H2Z 1H2 Canada.

Exhibit Location

The exhibit hall will be in Room 210DH on Level 2 of the Palais des Congrès. A preliminary floor plan is included within this prospectus. A final Exhibit Hall floor plan will be redesigned to accommodate contracted Exhibitor space requests and requirements to the extent possible.

Assignment of Space

  Applications for exhibit space must be made on the Official Exhibit Application Contract. Initial assignment of space will begin on December 13, 2019 and will be based on total support for the Society, prior participation in Society exhibitions, date of receipt of application AND payment in full, booth size requirements, booth height, and location of space requested. Assignment of space to Exhibitors whose contracts and payment are received after December 13, 2019 will be made in order of the date of receipt of the application AND payment in full. Exhibitors wishing to avoid assignment of space adjacent to that of a particular competitor should note that on their applications. Careful consideration will be given to all such requests, but accommodation of such requests is not guaranteed and can affect preferred booth assignment.


A security guard will be provided during all hours that the exhibit hall is closed. However, the safekeeping of the Exhibitor’s property is the responsibility of the Exhibitor.
