Find the following catering documents on the ATCA Annual website under "Exhibitor Information":
1 . Standard Aramark menu selections * (PDF), including bar/alcohol options starting on pg.18.
2 . Special menu selections developed specifically for ATCA Annual Exhibitors (digital flipbook). The special menu selection includes “Break in a Box” packages for morning or afternoon breaks you wish to hold at your booth. Pricing includes everything you need, plus all taxes and fees. A la carte items have been specifically designed for our ATCA exhibitors based on our history of what they like and affordability.

Going, Going... Meeting Rooms Will Be Gone Before Long!
Only exhibitors and high-level sponsors are entitled to rent meeting room space at the Marriott Marquis Washington, D.C. (ATCA’s headquarters hotel) and on the Exhibit Hall floor at the Washington Convention Center during ATCA Annual.

Please book early to ensure you get the meeting/hospitality space you need. As ATCA Annual grows closer, space options will decrease. The 2019 ATCA Annual Meeting Room Rental Packet lists all offerings. Download the PDF now !
Let Us Know Which FAA Contracts You Are Supporting!
Beginning last year, to better understand and support you, we gathered information on our exhibitors' FAA contracts. We distributed this list within the FAA and they told us it was extremely useful. 

We'd like to offer this to our exhibitors again this year, so we need your assistance in generating this list. Please fill in the attached form to include your prime or subcontractor information and your contract's end or renewal date. Please return this form to Mindy Soranno no later than September 18, 2019.
