Exhibitor Networking Social:

Each year for the past 30 years, TSA has sponsored an exhibitor networking social held in conjunction with the annual Research Festival Exhibit. The networking event is open to all exhibitors, TSA members, NIH employees and guests. TSA, through its underwriting capabilities as a nonprofit organization, has been able to offer this event at a discounted rate to all attendees. This year, for the first time, you have the option of registering for this annual event, being held at Tommy Joe’s Bar & Grill on September 17, 2020 at 4:00 p.m., at the same time you register for booth space. Please see the application/contract for details on how to pre-register. There is an early-bird rate for signing up in advance.
