The IMS2021 exhibition in Atlanta will feature approximately 200 companies from the RF and microwave industry showing off the latest product and service innovations (see Figure 1). The exhibition will take place in-person at the GWCC and online during the virtual event two weeks later. The in-person exhibition will be Tuesday and Wednesday, 8-9 June, starting at 09:30 each day closing at 17:00 and 18:00, respectively.

The virtual exhibition will take place in parallel to the technical sessions with separate halls for different categories of products so they will be easy to navigate through, depending on your products/services of interest. Newly added this year will be exhibitor sessions covering various technical topics given by industry experts. Please be sure to check out the virtual booths and exhibitor presentations to learn about new products and service offerings in our industry.

The IMS2021 committee and event management teams are doing everything they can to make IMS2021 the best event possible and are committed to presenting a conference and exhibition that addresses the health and safety considerations so essential in our current environment. The IMS2021 venue in Atlanta, the Georgia World Congress Center, (GWCC), was the first facility in the U.S. to achieve the Global BioRisk Advisory Council’s GBAC StarTM Accreditation, which recognizes facilities that implement the industry’s highest standards of cleaning for COVID-19. The organizers are working closely with the GWCC, their partners and event consultants to adhere to currently advised health and safety precautions. Special precautions are being taken from special cleaning procedures to extended spacing of booths in the exhibition hall to reduced capacity in the conference rooms to keep all in-person attendees safe.

Remember that if you register by 4 June and attend in-person, you will get the same level of registration in the virtual event at no addition cost. We hope to see as many people in-person as possible at IMS2021 but if we do not see you there, we will virtually see you two weeks later.
