How do exhibitors register for SLAS2020?

The key contact for this event has access to SLAS2020 Exhibitor Registration user credentials. Once obtained, those credentials can be used to register booth personnel and Exhibitor Full Conference attendees via the SLAS2020 Exhibitor Registration Portal.

There is a fee for Exhibition Only registration in 2020. All exhibitor personnel attendees should be registered using your allotment of booth registrations or your allotment of complimentary personnel badges all accessible through the SLAS2020 Exhibitor Registration Portal.

How do exhibitors obtain the SLAS2020 attendee list?

Exhibitors can access the list distribution tool through the Exhibitor Registration Portal, starting in December. Each Exhibitor’s lead contact will receive information about accessing the list at that time. The Attendee List Tool helps you let registered attendees know who you are and where to find you at SLAS by sending out an HTML email promoting your company and booth location. This tool is being managed by Convention Data Services, a trusted SLAS conference partner. Questions about the attendee list? Email xpressleadpro@cdsreg.com.

  • Warning! Numerous third-party agencies attempt to sell unofficial mailing lists on behalf of professional organizations, such as SLAS. Most of these solicitations are phishing scams, looking for legitimate email addresses and cannot be contacted by their 'Reply to' email. The attendee mailing list for SLAS2020 is available for rent through Convention Data Services only. Any solicitation claiming to have the list of SLAS2020 attendees is fraudulent, as SLAS does not sell or allow download of registered attendees. Convention Data Services/XPress Leads is the SLAS exclusive partner in providing the Attendee List Service.  All official communications will include the SLAS Official Vendor Logo:

Warning about unaffiliated hotels and third-party booking agencies...

Please be aware that exhibitors often are solicited by unaffiliated hotels or third-party housing agencies to book hotel reservations. SLAS2020.org is the only official booking agency and any solicitations or communications regarding hotel bookings from non-SLAS employees should not be considered valid. When SLAS is notified of these solicitations, we immediately demand a cease and desist of such practices.

Please report any unauthorized solicitations to Colleen Campbell via email at ccampbell@slas.org immediately.
