Beware of Attendee List Scammers

Unofficial marketing firms have contacted MRS members, potential MRS Meeting attendees and exhibitors about marketing opportunities and MRS mailing list rentals, including Spring and Fall Meeting registration lists. MRS takes privacy issues very seriously and does not share information about our members, meeting attendees, exhibitors, vendors, or affiliates. These companies are not affiliated with MRS. Note that only the MRS website and official MRS marketing documents linked in this newsletter will have official contacts for and information about renting mailing lists or ordering pre- and post-event customized email blasts. Valid MRS emails will include “Email ID Text”@mrs.org or MRS@HEIExpo.com.

Do not reply to emails from "exposolutionz.com" or other parties claiming to sell MRS attendee lists.

Exhibit Hall Guest Registration 

Invite your customers and prospects to attend the exhibit held in conjunction with the 2023 MRS Fall Meeting for free! Share this link for Exhibit Hall Only Registration.  

Please note: Badges are required to enter the Exhibit Hall. An Exhibit Hall-Only badge will only provide you access to the Exhibit Hall during exhibit hours.

Exhibitor Manual

The Exhibitor Manual is available at this link. Note: If you have not previously logged in to Freeman Online, you will need to set up a username and password.

The Exhibitor Manual is your resource for the successful implementation of your exhibits plan.

Official Contractors maintain a presence on-site, providing trained technical staff to support your needs.

Included in the manual are the rules and regulations, shipping and handling instructions, rental display options, labor services, and order forms for every service available to exhibitors during the 2023 MRS Fall Meeting & Exhibit. Please direct any questions to Freeman Exhibitor Support.

Housing Reminder

Visit this page to reserve your preferred Boston hotel. Book before November 3 to guarantee the MRS discounted rate!

PLEASE NOTE: Unofficial housing bureaus, including CBS International Travel and Global Housing, have contacted exhibitors and potential attendees and/or created websites with housing options. These companies are not affiliated with the 2023 MRS Fall Meeting. Only the MRS website will have official housing for the Meeting.

MRS receives meeting space at a greatly discounted rate as a result of contracting a large block of sleeping rooms at the official meeting hotels. In order to keep meeting costs as low as possible and minimize the financial risk to MRS, we encourage you to utilize official MRS housing while you are attending an MRS meeting.

Top 6 Reasons to Book Housing Within the Official MRS Block:
  1. Official hotels are MRS endorsed.
  2. Greater networking opportunities exist in hotels within the block.
  3. Friendly booking terms: No Change Fees; No FULL pre-payment.
  4. Guaranteed rates if booked prior to the deadline and/or block is full.
  5. Attendees have an excellent chance of getting into their first-choice hotel if booked early.
  6. Future housing and registration fees will stay low by booking at the official hotels.
