Created with Sketch.
  • The Learning Hall is in Halls DE on Level 2 of the Walter E. Washington Convention Center.   
  • There will be one entrance to the Learning Hall used during the ONS Congress 2024. The entrance to the hall is labeled “MAIN ENTRANCE’ located at the bottom of the floor plan leading into Hall D. 
  • The ONS Campus is in the center of the Learning Hall and is labeled as such. 
  • Presentation theaters are located on the perimeter of the Learning Hall and are reserved for exhibitor non-CNE presentations during Learning Hall hours. 
  • Patient Advocacy booths are located at the left of Hall D marked ‘PATIENT ADVOCACY PAVILION’. To qualify as a Patient Advocacy Booth your organization must provide proof of 501(c)(3) status. Patient Advocacy organizations are those that provide resources and support for patients, survivors, and care providers. Eligibility for this rate is subject to ONS approval. All companies that qualify for this rate must select space in this pavilion. 
  • Hospital Nurse Recruitment booths are in the top left-hand side of the hall, marked ‘CAREER FAIR PAVILION’. All companies that contract at this rate must select booth space in this pavilion. 
  • Each booth square is a 10’x10’ booth and may be combined with others to form larger booths. Two booths may be combined vertically to form a 10x20, not horizontally (no end caps). 
  • All aisles are 10’ wide. When combining booths, you may not cross into the 20’ cross aisles between or to the sides of the ONS Campus.

Registration & Housing Information

Created with Sketch.

Please note: Maritz is the official housing provider for the ONS 49th Annual Congress. ONS has worked diligently with the hotels in Washington, DC, to establish room blocks for attendees and exhibitors. Improper solicitation of hotel reservations from any company or housing provider other than Maritz Global Events is not approved by ONS. Reservations made by unaffiliated organizations may appear to be for lower rates, however they may be illegitimate, have unreasonable cancellation or change penalties, or be completely non-refundable. Please be aware of and report any unauthorized solicitation to ONS. 

Exhibitor badge registration and housing are integrated into one website. Confirmed exhibitors may register for badges and reserve hotel rooms by visiting the exhibitor portal here. Once you access the website, you will be prompted to enter/search for your company name. Once you have selected the correct company name, enter your password to complete the login process. There is an option to send the password to the email we have on file if needed.

NEW this year, you will be able to register for full conference exhibitor passes through your exhibitor portal. Full conference badges are not included with the exhibit package, and you will be charged according to membership status. A full conference exhibitor badge is required to attend sessions. The Exhibitor Full Conference pass will also give you exhibitor access to the hall for move-in and move-out. 

If you have questions or need help accessing the website, registering, or booking housing, please e-mail [email protected].
