Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Can exhibitors attend the sessions using our exhibitor badges?
A: Yes. There is no special badge for exhibitors. SAS2018 exhibitors will have the same type of badge as participants. We would like to have exhibitors also presenting (good scientific) presentations!

Q: Do exhibitors have same registration privileges as regular participants?
A: Yes. Exhibitors are a very important part of the community. We want them in the talks, at the lunches with participants, at the banquet.

Q: What is the cost for additional exhibitor badges and what is included?
A: The standard registration fees apply for additional registrations.  Likewise, all badges include lunches, refreshments, and also the SAS2018 Conference Banquet.  Additional registrations (beyond those listed above) should go through the standard registration process.  Additional banquet tickets (for those not registering for the conference) will be available for $90.

Q:  Do we need to register before we submit an abstract?
A: No, abstract submission  does not require registration. For abstracts to be scheduled (either for a presentation or a poster) and to appear in the SAS2018 Conference Abstract Book, registration must be completed by the advanced registration date, 2018-08-10.
