Osteopathic Association Enlists TDC to Strengthen Conference Presence

AACOM seeks greater impact and engagement with new exhibit booth presentation

Washington, DC, March 2, 2017—David Franek, president and chief creative officer of The Design Channel (TDC), has announced that the American Association of Colleges of Osteopathic Medicine (AACOM) has reached out to the agency to develop a new exhibit booth for conferences and industry events.

“We’re excited about furthering our relationship with AACOM,” Franek said. “This will be a great opportunity to create a high-impact presentation space that engages event participants and invites them to learn more about all that AACOM has to offer.” Previously, TDC developed a logo for AACOM’s annual conference as well as a suite of collateral and recruitment materials aimed at students considering a career in osteopathic medicine.

The new exhibit booth will have a maximum footprint of 20’x20’ and feature two large double-sided panels and a kiosk module. The design will also need to be versatile enough to accommodate a variety of exhibition space configurations as well as a scaled-down presentation version when necessary. Concept and messaging development will begin immediately, with final fabrication of the booth components slated to be completed in time for AACOM’s annual conference April 26–29 in Baltimore.


AACOM is a non-profit organization based in Chevy Chase, Maryland that supports colleges of osteopathic medicine across the U.S. and serves as a unifying voice for osteopathic medical education. The association fosters collaboration among member institutions and is an advocacy voice at the federal government level. It also provides centralized services to members, including data collection and analysis, and operation of the online application service (AACOMAS) for prospective students applying to osteopathic medical schools.
