aacr official vendors

Convention Management Resources (CMR) and CompuSystems are the official hotel and registration management providers for the AACR Annual Meeting 2023. No other hotel, registration management companies, or travel agencies are authorized to place hotel reservations or registrations for the Annual Meeting on behalf of the AACR.

The AACR evaluates and chooses vendors who offer superior service and quality products to exhibitors. Rest assured that AACR never provides AACR exhibitor lists to those other than official vendors. All official vendors must display the official vendor seal of the meeting. Please contact the exhibits team for further questions or clarification.

Soliciting Business Outside Booth

Any individual who is observed to be soliciting business in the aisles or other public spaces, or in another company’s booth, will be in violation of our Exhibit Policies. The Floor Manager will be on duty ensuring everyone is following the rules and regulations of our meeting. Should any exhibitor witness an individual, especially a non-exhibitor, committing this violation, we ask you to notify Exhibit Management immediately. Companies pay to exhibit at our meeting; and it is unfair practice for someone to conduct business without being an official exhibitor. We take this violation very seriously.


Mark your calendar! The AACR Annual Meeting 2024 will be held in San Diego, CA April 5-10. Online booth sales and a copy of the current floor plan will be available in the Exhibit Management Office, located in the Exhibit Hall. To be placed on the distribution list, please email [email protected].
