Housing & Travel

AIST is excited to welcome you back to Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

Housing will open 1 December 2015.

WARNING: Unauthorized Service Providers

As an exhibitor, you may be contacted by Unauthorized Service Providers — for hotel/housing, audiovisual, carpet, exhibitor directory listing, etc. — who claim to be affiliated with AIST. These solicitations may appear to provide cost savings; however, the rates listed could be misleading and, in some cases, the vendor may not be a credible supplier.

AISTech Show Management is committed to providing quality services to ensure your show experience is positive. Should you be contacted by an unauthorized service provider or have any questions, please contact Show Management.
