Exhibitor tutorials are an important part of the SLAS2016 program and a great way to connect with SLAS2016 attendees. These sessions are held at the San Diego Convention Center and space is booked directly through SLAS. Fees below do not include food/beverage. Once space is confirmed food/beverage orders can be arranged with the facility directly.

Exhibitor tutorials are available in 45-minute, 75-minute, or 120-minute time slots. A limited number of tutorial slots are available, and exhibitors may only request up to two tutorial slots. If additional slots are requested, requests will be put on a waiting list until November 1, 2015. After this date exhibitors will be allowed to secure additional tutorial time slots in the order in which the forms have been received based on room availability.

Exhibitors have the option to upgrade their tutorial to include video recording, produced by Biocompare.
