General Convention Questions

  • What is the SAIA Annual Convention & Exposition all about?
    • The SAIA Annual Convention & Exposition is the one of the largest gatherings of scaffold and access professionals. It features scaffold- and access-focused educational sessions and showcases the nation’s top scaffold and access exhibitors. If you are a first-time attendee, new member or haven’t attended a convention in awhile, now’s the time to come. Visit the “First Timer” section to read further details. Or, call us at 816.595.4860 – we would love to talk about the Annual Convention & Exposition with you!

  • What does my full registration fee cover?
    • The full registration fee covers all SAIA Annual Convention & Exposition educational sessions and materials, entrance to the exhibit hall, breakfasts, refreshment breaks, lunches, receptions and the President’s Gala. Day passes or individual event purchases cover only the day purchased or that event.

  • What is the cancellation policy?
    • All cancellations must be made in writing and can be mailed, faxed or emailed to the SAIA. Any cancellations received on or before June 16, 2017, will be honored, but will result in a $50 per person processing charge. There will be no refunds for cancellations received after June 17, 2017.

  • What should I wear to the meetings?
    • We want you to be comfortable while you work and learn much throughout the day, and while you relax at night. For that reason, the SAIA Annual Convention & Exposition functions are business casual, except for the President’s Gala which is cocktail attire.
