Official Contractors Reminder
Interested in Exhibiting at ALA?
The ALA Exhibits Team – represented by Hall-Erickson, Inc. email@example.com – is the only official exhibit and sponsorship sales representative of the American Library Association Annual Conference & Exhibition and LibLearnX. Your company or organization may be contacted by other companies soliciting you for exhibit booth space and sponsorship opportunities. Please be aware that these companies claim to provide sales opportunities for the American Library Association events, but are not affiliated with ALA in any way. Don’t be misled! Contact firstname.lastname@example.org or visit exhibitors.ala.org/ for all things ALA exhibits.
There are some companies that organize collective exhibits of independent publishers, authors or other services within the ALA exhibits. These are independent companies or associations that do not represent ALA. ALA never invites or solicits participation in these displays. If you are solicited by an organization claiming to offer services on behalf of ALA or representing an invitation from ALA, be wary and feel free to contact the Exhibition Management office for more information at email@example.com.
Be wary of any false and misleading messages sent by companies falsely claiming to be the official provider of services for the ALA Annual Conference & Exhibition. Official service providers for services will be clearly identified in the Exhibitor Manual and by the “Official Contractor” logo. Show Management contracts out to a select group of companies the responsibility of performing the various tasks needed to set up, operate and dismantle the exhibits. These companies are considered the “Official Contractors” for the event. If you have any questions about service providers claiming an affiliation that cannot be substantiated, contact Hall-Erickson at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Note on Unauthorized List Rental
ALA exhibitors may receive communications from companies selling ALA attendee lists. Please note that these companies have no affiliation with ALA, we do not verify their lists and we cannot recommend purchasing a list through them.
Please refer to this article about fake list vendors.
ALA’s official list rental is provided through CompuSystems Lead Management. List rental and broadcast email service will be available through the Exhibitor Registration site. CompuSystems emails login credentials for Exhibitor Registration to the Company’s Main Contact.
Use the “Forgot password” link on the site if you have misplaced your password. If your email is not recognized on the registration platform, please email email@example.com. For more information email CompuSystems at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Directory Listing Warning
As an exhibitor, your listing in the official ALA Annual Conference Exhibit Directory & Exhibit Floor Activity Guide is always complimentary. Please disregard all solicitations from third-party suppliers offering directory listings. They are not affiliated with the American Library Association, the ALA Annual Conference & Exhibition or Hall-Erickson, Inc. If you are approached by a questionable supplier, please contact email@example.com.
Housing Poachers Reminder
Some exhibitors may be contacted by outside vendors regarding housing for the ALA Annual Conference & Exhibition or LibLearnX. Please be aware that these companies claim to provide housing and registration services for the ALA Annual Conference & Exhibition, but are not affiliated with ALA in any way. DON’T BE MISLED!! Housing for ALA’s Annual Conference and LibLearnX is handled exclusively by onPeak.
Please be sure to make your reservations through onPeak, ALA’s only official housing partner. While other hotel resellers may contact you offering housing for your trip, they are not endorsed by or affiliated with the show and entering into financial agreements with non-endorsed companies can have costly consequences.
If you have any questions or need any assistance, please let us know!
