We ask payments professionals attending TRANSACT to direct your support to the companies who officially exhibit, or sponsor TRANSACT. If a payments company comes to Atlanta the week of TRANSACT, they’re here because your nonprofit trade association, ETA, has invested in making TRANSACT a worthwhile destination for members of the industry.

“Suitcasing” and “Outboarding” are unethical business practices where industry non-exhibitors attempt to gain access to trade show attendees. Suitcasing refers to those non-exhibiting companies or persons who go to shows as an attendee but “work the aisles” to solicit business in the aisles or the lobby area. Outboarding refers to non-exhibiting companies that set-up exhibits at off-site locations (hotel hospitality suites or restaurants) at TRANSACT during set-up days or show days and encourage show attendees to leave the show floor and spend time with them.

This hurts the show and undercuts the huge investment of time, money, personnel and overall support that companies make in TRANSACT. Without their participation, TRANSACT would not be the industry hub that it is. TRANSACT exhibiting companies are encouraged to protect their investment by reporting any outboarding they witness to ETA.

ETA is a nonprofit organization. The funds from TRANSACT help us advocate on behalf our members, educate the industry, and produce world-class events.

As a reminder, Mandalay Bay has a policy to only allow TRANSACT exhibitors or sponsors to book a hotel suite or meeting room during TRANSACT. Those found violating this policy will be subject to a severe penalty. In addition, ETA monitors the housing bookings at Mandalay Bay, and if any companies go around this policy, and book outside of the TRANSACT housing block, Mandalay Bay can revoke event privileges.

Yes, media will be in attendance. If you are interested in contacting the media, please write to Scott Talbott at stalbott@electran.org and he can assist you.

All registrants will be provided with a name badge for use during the event. For security purposes, you will be required to wear your name badge at all times in ETA’s meeting space. Individuals without a visible name badge will not be permitted into the meeting’s areas.

Further, attendees may not have some other person participate in their place at any conference-related activity. Such other individuals will be required to register on their own behalf to participate.

Please note that there will be a $50 reprint badge charge for any missing badges needing replacement.

By registering, you agree not to share, transfer, sell or trade your badge. If you violate this policy, ETA may cancel your attendance and retain any payments.

The cancellation deadline for the event, including special events, is March 17, 2024. Refunds will be subject to a $100 processing fee plus $50 for each special event. No refunds will be issued after the cancellation deadline. No-shows are non-refundable. Cancellations must be made in writing to ETAReg@expotracker.net.
