NALA Exhibitor/Sponsor Information Page

Online Exhibitor Services Portal
A comprehensive online exhibitor services portal, OneView, is available from our expo company, Fern. You can access this portal starting in April to order services such as power, furnishings, storage, or shipping, etc. for your expo hall booth. If you have any questions regarding the exhibitor services portal, OneView, please contact Missy Welch mwelch@fernexpo.com.

Hotel
The Louisville Marriott Downtown is our host hotel for the NALA Conference & Expo. Exhibitors who reserve their rooms receive a special discounted rate of $189/night. Complimentary Wi-Fi is included. Nightly parking is discounted to $19/night in the attached garage, based on availability.

Please review your registration confirmation email for the link to reserve rooms at the discounted rate or email pvanstraten@nala.org for the link. Discounted room rates are available until June 17, 2024, or until the room block has been filled. After June 18, 2024, or if the room block becomes filled, NALA can no longer guarantee rates and availability. Make your reservations as soon as possible to ensure availability and secure the discounted rate.

All rooms available at the discounted rate under the room block for July 9 have been booked. However, rooms are still available at a higher rate for that night at the host hotel. We are actively working to secure overflow rooms at a discounted rate for July 9 at an alternate hotel.

The list may be used for only ONE mailing, either before or after the conference. Exhibitors may communicate with attendees through the conference app or event platform during the conference.
