View the Agenda

Scientific sessions will alternate with vendor tutorials and dedicated exhibition engagement time (well beyond your typical chat window). The event will be presented within an easy-to-navigate, interactive platform, which allows for simultaneous small group video chat or one-on-one on-demand networking all day. Invite your colleagues from around the world -- morning, afternoon, and early evening sessions will be available each day. 

Exhibition and Sponsorship Opportunities

View Sponsorship Opportunities

The SLAS event platform will provide a truly integrated exhibition experience for technology providers. No avatars or fake plants in our exhibit hall. Exhibitors: you are invited to demo a new or existing product, take questions, set up one-on-one video meetings with attendees, organize follow-up conversations or small group chat sessions after your presentation. Think of this as your new remote office with customers stopping by. No masks necessary and social distancing guidelines are guaranteed. 
Not ready to present a demo or tutorial but want to get out in front of the SLAS community? Sponsorship opportunities will also be available for a variety of platform features, paricipant giveaways and more.
