Can I obtain a registration receipt after the conference?

If you need a receipt for your registration fee and did not retain it upon registering, please contact Registration.

Exhibitor Registration

What are the registration options for exhibitors?

Exhibitors do not need to register their booth staff as they would have for a traditional in-person exhibition. The only staff that needs to be “registered” are those from companies listing contact information on the landing page or participating in video chat. These companies will be assigned a task in the Virtual Exhibitor Service Center to register staff for video chat participation (Champion, Spotlight, and Premium level exhibitors only). The link to the Virtual Exhibitor Service Center will be sent to you by SC20 Exhibits Management.

Other than video chat, there is no “staffing” of booths as with a traditional expo. Exhibitors who wish to participate as an attendee should register as an attendee. Registration categories include:

  • Technical Program (TP)
  • Tutorials (TUT)
  • Workshops (W)
  • Exhibits (XO)

Registering for Exhibits (XO) is at no charge and includes:

  • Awards Ceremony (Thu)
  • Birds of a Feather (Tue–Wed)
  • Exhibitor Forum (Tue–Thu)
  • Exhibits (Tue–Thu)
  • Invited Talks (Tue–Thu)
  • Job Fair
  • Keynote (Mon)
  • More Than HPC Plenary (Mon)
  • Posters Display (Tue-Thu)
