For Exhibitors and Sponsors

Don’t miss the chance to meet your customers and reach out to new ones from across the biological research spectrum—all under one roof.

Participating Communities

TAGC includes researchers from the C. elegans, Drosophila, mammalian, Xenopus, yeast, zebrafish, and population, evolutionary, and quantitative genetics research communities—along with those researching humans, plants, and agricultural species. We anticipate attendance of nearly 4,000 scientists. Historically, 82% of attendees either make recommendations or have full decision-making authority on purchasing for their lab.

Topics covered at the conference will include new technology, genomics, cell biology, development, gene regulation, disease models, neuroscience, education, and more.

Why Exhibit?

Why Exhibit at The Allied Genetics Conference?

  • Interact with attendees that have significant purchasing power for their labs.
  • Access the genetics research community in one location at one time.
  • Showcase your products/services through hands-on demonstrations and in-depth discussions on how you can support their research.
  • Recruit scientists from multiple biological research communities who are interested in new career options.
  • Expand your network through workshops, discussions, and social events that make it easy to interact meaningfully with attendees and representatives of key scientific organizations.
  • Influence a wide range of researchers of all career stages and trajectories, including students, postdocs, new faculty, and jobseekers.
  • Show support of current customers who may be giving a talk, presenting a poster, or hosting a workshop.
  • Reach new audiences from communities that tend to be early adopters of new technologies.

Attendee Demographics

As a new meeting in 2016, over 3,000 researchers attended and 91% said they would attend this meeting again. For 2020, we expect attendance to be over 4,000.

In 2016:

  • 3,015 scientific attendees registered
  • 2,182 abstracts were submitted
  • 98% visited the exhibits and posters

Our attendees constitute a highly-educated global market of scientific researchers in the field of genetics.

The attendees work at colleges and universities, government and private research institutes, laboratories, medical schools, corporate and industrial settings, and other institutions.

Our communities are known as early adopters (and developers) of new technology — they are always searching for new and improved methodological tools and resources.
