Any meeting or event that involves AACR scientific meeting attendees hosted by a company or organization, regardless of exhibiting status, is considered an affiliate event and must be approved by the AACR. If you plan to hold a function during the 2024 Annual Meeting, you MUST complete the survey below. Please submit one request per event. If your event requires more than one meeting room, you must submit a separate request for each room needed. The Annual Meeting affiliate guide is also linked below, which includes rules and regulations, pricing, and other important information. Please contact AACR Affiliates at [email protected] with any questions.

Please note that Affiliate Meetings are different than Meeting Rooms.

Affiliate Meetings are any meeting or event hosted by a company or organization that involves AACR scientific meeting attendees. These meetings take place at one of the approved affiliate hotels and must be approved by the AACR. Affiliate meetings can be held by both exhibiting and non-exhibiting companies/organizations and there is a separate fee to host these types of meetings.

Meeting Rooms are built out rooms in the Sails Pavilion of the convention center ranging in size from 10’x10’-20’x20’. Meeting Rooms provide exhibitors with the ability to host staff meetings during the Exhibit Show and are a great opportunity to create a unique, private showroom or lounge for hosting clients and prospects. These meeting rooms can only be purchased by exhibiting companies/organizations and can only be purchased through the Exhibitor Dashboard on Map Your Show.


The AACR 2024 Career Fair is a great opportunity for exhibiting companies to expand their footprint at the Annual Meeting, attract top talent, and make connections with scientists at all career levels.  The Fair takes place on Saturday, April 6, 2024, from 9:00 AM – 3:00 PM. Job seekers attending the Fair will meet with employers from various industries to explore opportunities within the Cancer and Biomedical Research field!

aacr official vendors

Convention Management Resources (CMR) and CompuSystems are the official hotel and registration management providers for the AACR Annual Meeting 2024. 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. The AACR only provides the exhibitor list to 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 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 to ensure that everyone follows the rules and regulations of the meeting. Should any exhibitor witness an individual, especially a non-exhibitor, violating this policy, 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.

Walchli Tauber Group Rate Card



The AACR organizes a variety of outstanding conferences, meetings, and workshops each year to advance our understanding of cancer and to facilitate the exchange of the most cutting-edge research in the field. Attendees are invited to stretch their boundaries, form collaborations, attend sessions outside their areas of expertise, and learn how to apply exciting new concepts, tools, and techniques to their own research.

AACR Special Conferences present unique opportunities to interact with the world’s leading experts and discuss the latest findings in rapidly developing areas of cancer research. These popular conferences are relatively small (150-400 attendees) to allow ample time for discussion and networking.

The AACR also holds a variety of meetings on a recurring basis, including such collaborative programs as the San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium, the Molecular Targets and Cancer Therapeutics Conference, the International Cancer Immunotherapy Conference, and the Biennial Meeting on Advances in Malignant Lymphoma.

There are limited opportunities to exhibit at special conferences. Don’t miss this opportunity.
