MRS User Facility Row

December 1-6, 2019
Location: Hynes Convention Center, Boston, Massachusetts

SSURF is partnering with the 2019 MRS Fall Meeting in Boston, December 1-6, 2019, to highlight user facilities. This partnership includes several aspects: A User Facilities Exhibit Row; Dedicated hour on the Hub Stage on user facilities; User facilities promoted in an email to over 5,000 preregistered MRS Meeting attendees; SSURF refreshment sponsorship in the User Facilities Exhibit Row; Promotion in the Meeting & Exhibit Guide and on social media. While preliminary plans are in development, we still need to finalize the topic for the Hub Stage and explore other opportunities to promote user facilities at the meeting. If you would like to participate in planning for this event, please contact Crystal Schrof at SSURF strongly encourages you to consider showcasing your user facility and its unique capabilities at a booth on User Facilities Row.
