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. SLAS2019.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.

Will complimentary wi-fi will be available at SLAS2019?

Complimentary wi-fi coverage areas include scientific session rooms, main concourses, the SLAS2019 registration area and the immediate surrounding vicinity. Due to contracted agreements in place with Convention Center providers, exhibitors must make arrangements for their own Internet requirements. See the Exhibitor Services Kit for details and forms.
