Some exhibitors may be contacted by outside vendors regarding housing for the ALA Annual Conference and Midwinter Meeting. Please be aware that these companies claim to provide housing and registration services for the ALA Annual Conference/Midwinter Meeting, but are not affiliated with ALA in any way. DON'T BE MISLED!! Housing for ALA's Annual Conference and Midwinter Meeting 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.
Housing for the Annual Conference opens in January.
Housing for the Midwinter Meeting opens in October.
Some ALA exhibitors may receive communications from companies soliciting ALA attendee lists. Please note that these companies have no affiliation with ALA, and we cannot recommend purchasing a list through them.
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, which opens in January for the Annual Conference and in October for the Midwinter Meeting. For more information, call 866/600-5323, or email CompuSystems at firstname.lastname@example.org.
As an exhibitor, your listing in the official ALA Midwinter Meeting Final Program / ALA Annual Conference Program & Exhibits Directory 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 Midwinter Meeting & Exhibits, the ALA Annual Conference & Exhibition or Hall-Erickson, Inc. If you are approached by a questionable supplier, please contact email@example.com.
Be wary of any false and misleading messages sent by companies claiming to be the official provider of services for the ALA Annual Conference or Midwinter Meeting. Official service providers for services will be clearly identified in the Exhibitor Manual. 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 630/929-7925 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
