  • Guidelines for Referring to AES in Advertising

    References to AES in Advertisements and Mailings

    Advertisements and direct mail outreach may include reference to the AES Annual Meeting, but it must not imply that the ad or mailer is from AES. During the review process, AES reserves the right to change language relating to the use of the American Epilepsy Society and/or to reduce the point size of the reference.

    • Neither the AES logo nor the AES 2020 Annual Meeting logo may be used in any advertisement or mailer
    • No version of “American Epilepsy Society”, “AES”, and “Annual Meeting” may appear in any URLs your company uses to support your program or product.
    • The following reference to AES is not required, but may be used in all advertising, including airport, outdoor, taxi, hotel, and various onsite advertising: AES2020 or AES 2020.
    • On materials viewed or used onsite at the convention center—including but not limited to program book ads, meeting guide, door drops, media wall ads, and room signs for scientific exhibits and satellite symposia—advertisers may use: American Epilepsy Society 2020 Annual Meeting or AES 2020 Annual Meeting.


    Messaging at the AES Annual Meeting

    Please note these requirements for your corporate and branded product messaging based on where your advertisement will appear:

    • Messaging on sponsored items and advertising inside the exhibit hall may include corporate messaging and logos and/or product messaging and logos. AES reserves the right to disallow corporate and/or product messaging and logos on items in the exhibit hall if there is a reasonable possibility that attendees may carry those items where corporate messaging might be visible in accredited education sessions.
    • Messaging on sponsored items and advertising in the convention center but outside the exhibit hall may not include product messaging and logos, with the exception of ads appearing on the AES Media Wall, which may include product messaging and logos.
    • Outdoor advertising and sponsorships (airport, taxi, shuttle buses, billboards, headquarters hotels, etc.) may include a call to action and may include product messaging and logos as part of a larger corporate message. The product messaging and logo must appear smaller than the corporate messaging and logo.
  • Housing

    Companies exhibiting at the AES Annual Meeting are expected to house
    their staff and vendor teams in the AES hotel block.

    Please see the Exhibitor Group Hotel Expectations page for details on how exhibitors can best work with AES to maximize their housing experience.
