In addition, view scientific posters in the Poster Hall representing notable studies and conclusions in this dynamic field of medicine. Network with your colleagues, meet new friends, gain new knowledge and listen to live musical entertainment in the SNMMI Booth while enjoying hors d'oeuvres and refreshments. Please stop by and thank exhibiting companies for their generous support of the SNMMI 2019 Annual Meeting.

The Exhibit/Poster Hall will be open from Saturday evening to Tuesday afternoon during the SNMMI Annual Meeting.

Hot Spot – Cash Prizes!

Up to 20 exhibitors will designate their booth as a “Hot Spot.” Attendees will have six chances to win a $300 CASH drawing by being in the right booth at the right time. There will be two drawings each day during Dedicated Exhibit Hall Hours. Show Management will call out the hot spot company name and booth number. All attendees standing in that booth when the company name is called will be eligible to win $300 cash right there on the spot.


The SNMMI Booth is one of the most sought after areas in the Exhibit Hall, and it will now be conveniently located in registration at the front of the Exhibit Hall. The SNMMI booth allows attendees to gather important information about MOC modules, purchase specialty products and books, learn more about the SNMMI 2019 Virtual Meeting, and receive copies of JNM and JNMT.

ABNM Booth

The American Board of Nuclear Medicine is the primary certifying organization for nuclear medicine in the United States. The Board serves the public through assurance of high quality patient care by establishing standards of training, initial certification, and continuing competence of physicians providing nuclear medicine diagnostic and therapeutic services. Stop by the ABNM Booth located in registration at the front of the Exhibit Hall and ask questions about your Maintenance of Certification.

Scientific Papers and Posters

Attend scientific sessions featuring oral and poster presentations by authors of accepted abstracts. Oral sessions are 90 minutes in duration and include up to 7 presentations per session with sufficient time allotted to answer questions from attendees, while poster sessions offer similar content with flexible viewing times. Investigators will be on-hand during the “Meet the Author” poster sessions to discuss their research.
