- To better provide for the health and safety of ASHG’s attendees, exhibitors, staff, and volunteers, admittance to the Los Angeles Convention Center is restricted to guests who register in advance and meet the health and safety criteria outlined on our Health & Safety page. Anyone who has not registered for the Annual Meeting in advance will not be able to attend ASHG events held at the Los Angeles Convention Center, including speakers and guests who will only be attending specific industry events or visiting the exhibit hall. Exhibitors wishing to invite guests to visit your booth or attend your industry events at the convention center may register them using the complimentary scientific or exhibitor guest badges included with your booth rental; additional exhibitor guest badges will available for purchase through our registration portal once your allotment is used. (Pricing and more information regarding the guest registration and health verification process will be available in summer 2022.) Exhibitor badges do not permit entry into scientific sessions. All attendees, exhibitors, and guests must be registered with their own badge, and badges may not be shared, altered, or exchanged.

Exhibitor Scam Alerts
Please be aware of unofficial contractors attempting to sell to ASHG exhibitors. New deceptive tactics are always developing, so use your best judgment and reach out to email@example.com with any questions or to report suspicious contacts.
Too often, unsanctioned groups, such as Global Housing Corp or Convention Housing Services based in Henderson, Nevada, send solicitation emails and direct calls to ASHG exhibitors. They typically offer discounted hotel reservations during the ASHG Annual Meeting. Please be advised that all exhibitors and attendees must book their rooms and room blocks directly with the official hotels listed on the ASHG website. We strongly discourage any exhibitor conducting business with either company, as there have been numerous fraudulent reports.
The most common solicitation you will receive is the offer of an email list for pre-registered ASHG 2022 attendees. ASHG does not sell, rent, or share contact/lead lists of members or meeting attendees. None of these companies are legitimate, and any solicitations for ASHG mailing lists are scams and are in no way endorsed, promoted, or protected by ASHG. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for advertising and sponsorship options to reach ASHG meeting attendees.
ASHG exhibitors should be aware of any external vendors contacting them regarding an “Expo Guide” for the ASHG Annual Meeting. Many of you may be familiar with this exhibits scam, but please be on the look out for anyone soliciting for a free entry in an Expo Guide. Expo Guide is an organization based in Mexico that deceives people into signing up to their online expo directory at www.expo-guide.com before sending them an extortionate bill. View more information, including sample letters.
Please contact ASHG if you are unsure of the origin of any email regarding the 2022 Annual Meeting. Official vendors will have their contact information and official forms in the Freeman ESM.
