Midwest LRIG 2023 Spring Conference Exhibitor Information


Thank you for registering as a vendor for the Midwest LRIG 2023 Spring Conference: Frontiers of Life Science Research & Automation at the Stowers Institute for Medical Research at 1000 E 50th Street, Kansas City, MO on April 20th.  We have an impressive speaker lineup that will help draw attendance with breaks for the attendees to walk the Technology Exhibition.


Due to capacity limitations, we are limiting the number of Exhibitors that can attend and we ask for your understanding. Please be mindful of your current level of sponsorship for vendor attendance purposes. The limitations on Exhibitors will allow more attendees to be present for the conference.


A block of hotel rooms has been reserved at the Marriott Kansas City Country Club Plaza at 4600 Mill Creek Parkway, KCMO. A bus service will run from the hotel to the venue before and after the conference. 


Your contacts for the event to help with any questions are Brooke Johnson as the Technology Exhibition Director and Clint Davis, our Technology Exhibition Deputy.  Inquiries from vendors should be directed to, and Brooke and Clint will respond accordingly.  Please allow 24-48 hours for response. 


Shipping Instructions:

Vendors can ship items up to 1 week prior to the event.  Shipments need to be delivered to Stowers no later than April 18.  Please use the following address and contact information for shipping purposes:

Equipment Requirements for Table -Top setup:

Equipment needs to be table-top size and fit on the current table provided.  If you would like to bring a free-standing instrument, you will need to purchase two tables or not have a table at all.  Please plan accordingly for this since the event is sold out of tables.


Banners can be free-standing and placed on top of the table or behind the table (if the space allows).


The official setup time is 12-4pm on the 19th. We will have a vendor reception from 4-6pm and setup cutoff at 10pm that evening.


You can breakdown any time after 4 on the 20th. The conference reception will then take place 4-6pm after.
