The ASA, CSSA and SSSA Housing Bureau will open for housing reservations on April 13, 2015.  It's best to make your reservations early, as the most affordable hotels will sell out within a few days of opening.

In the past few years, a company not associated with the Societies has been contacting exhibitors offering discounted rates.  The ASA, CSSA, and SSSA Housing Bureau is the official housing provider for the 2015 International Annual Meetings in Minneapolis, MN.  They will not contact you unless they are following up on a housing request you have submitted.  If you are contacted by any other company claiming to offer special housing deals we strongly suggest not providing credit card information to them. If you have already made a reservation and it was not with the Societies’ housing bureau, you are encouraged to cancel your reservation and rebook it through the Societies’ housing bureau. Your housing reservation is safe and secure when it is made with the Societies’ housing bureau.

Promote Your Product or Service

Get your name and products/services in front of this group by exhibiting, taking advantage of our sponsorship program, or advertising in our Annual Meetings Program App/ Book and in the pre- and post- meeting editions of CSA News.

  • A pre-conference or post-conference attendee mailing list is available complimentary to exhibitors wanting to send a promotional piece to attendees.  Email addresses are not available. Please complete the List Rental Contract and send a copy of the promotional piece to bholte@sciencesocieties.org.  The mailing list is available Oct. 16-Dec. 5 and updated weekly.        
  • Advertising in the printed Annual Meetings Program App/Book is always a great way to drive traffic to your booth. Attendees use these as guides for the event and advertisements can be placed for as little as $450.
  • A limited number of exhibitors can participate in The Passport Game. Every registered attendee will get a game piece which will be used to visit participating exhibitors to get the card validated. Once validated, the attendee drops the card at the Society Center in the exhibit hall for a chance to win prizes. Participation is just $1,000 and limited to the first 15 exhibitors.
  • Sponsor the new  Smart Phone App  ! All attendees can download the electronic app to their smart phone to help guide them through the event. The MySciMtgs app is available on smart phones (blackberry, android and iPhone), the iPad, android tablet and desktop computers. A clickable sponsor image is located on the splash page and rotates automatically. Three sponsorships are available at $2,500 each.

Combining both sponsorship and advertising along with your exhibit is the best way to get maximum exposure. As you know, multiple impressions will get a reaction from buyers. Contact Eric Welsh at 608-273-8081 or via email at ewelsh@sciencesocieties.org  for more information.
