Exhibitor Resources


Exhibitor Update Newsletters

Periodic Exhibitor Update newsletters are published by Show Management as a service to exhibitors participating in upcoming Shows. The goal is to share new and important information regarding the Show and aid exhibitors in maximizing the effectiveness of their participation. Exhibitors are encouraged to thoroughly read all Exhibitor Update newsletters. An archive of these newsletters will be posted on this page.

Exhibitor Registration

Exhibitor Registration can be accessed at this link.

The primary booth contact has been sent login credentials from CompuSystems to access their Exhibitor Registration Portal. From there you can register booth staff, view complete registration details for all exhibit staff and edit existing registrants, resend confirmations, order lead retrieval and list rental services. If you have any questions or problems accessing this site, please call 708/486-0706 for Customer Service.

NOTE: Exhibitor badges are for exhibit personnel and cannot be ordered for customers or guests.


Exhibitor Housing

Exhibitors should use this link to book housing. 

If you need assistance with any housing-related issues, please contact our housing vendor onPeak at 800/584-9047 or ala@onpeak.com.

Accept no substitutes! Please be aware that there are companies that claim to provide housing and registration services for the ALA conferences that are not affiliated with ALA in any way. The chances are quite good that sometime soon you will receive a fax, e-mail transmission or phone call (if you haven't already) that offers you cut-rate housing. The author's apparent intent is to convince you that the offer is made on behalf of ALA. IT IS NOT. Many exhibitors have become the unwitting victims of these room block poachers who secure exhibitor lists from Internet Web sites and membership databases from the membership directories that associations produce.

Don't be misled! Housing for LibLearnX is handled exclusively by onPeak.

When ALA secures hotel sleeping rooms for our conferences, we do so to assure that our attendees and exhibitors are adequately accommodated. We also require hotels for meeting space for the numerous sessions offered. This involves contracting rooms and space with many hotels, however, doing so will subject us to cancellation and attrition policies.

Everyone loves a bargain. Poaching housing blocks, however, is not about better prices - it is about highly suspect ethics and service. We hope you will support ALA's efforts to thwart the efforts of room block poachers when making your housing arrangements.

Thank you for your support.
