Presentations

Sponsor Sessions are due December 16, 2022. NO EXCEPTIONS.

All Exhibitor Presenters must either (1) use one of those included with your company's sponsorship or (2) purchase registration. Exhibitor Presenters must be registered for the event in order to present on-site. Exhibitor Presenters DO NOT receive complimentary registrations unless they've purchase an "add-on" session, which includes a full conference registration.

Companies have two different ways that they can present at Alliance 2023:

  1. Co-Present a Session with a Client

    A client that is a HEUG/PSUG member may submit a session proposal for consideration that includes your company as a co-presenter. No costs are associated with this type of presentation; however, your client must be the primary presenter, and they are responsible for submitting the proposal. If the session is accepted, your client's primary presenter will be informed, and the primary presenter who is a HEUG/PSUG member will receive a discounted registration (Exhibitor co-presenters must be a sponsor or exhibitor at Alliance plus register for the conference).

  2. Be a Sponsor at Alliance 2023

    Platinum Sponsors receive two (2) full presentations. Major Sponsors receive one (1) full presentation. All sponsors can purchase additional Sponsored Sessions.


Registration & Housing

All Exhibitor Presenters and Solution Center Representatives from your company must either (1) use one of those included with your company's sponsorship or (2) purchase registration.

To register for the event you use your company code, which consists of your company name and 23 at the end.
For example, if my company name is Google, my code would be 'Google23'.
The registration system will use all comps with codes first. If you would like to purchase additional passes use your company name without the 23 at the end which will default to the prevailing sponsor rate.

Registration Allocations*:

  • Premier - 10 Passes
  • Platinum - 8 Passes
  • Major - 4 Passes
  • Exhibitor - 2 Passes

*Confirm your sponsorship level with our Exhibitor List.

Make sure to purchase your registrations ahead of time. Any registration purchased on-site will receive a $250 on-site processing fee.
