Attendee Registration

The NEAA 2024 Annual Conference is open to everyone participating in or interested in learning more about the Merchant Acquiring Industry.

Attendee Defined
An attendee is defined as any person(s) or company that seeks to sell a product or service, or otherwise solicit business, for a bankcard merchant. In addition, an attendee seeks information from, or resells the products of, the registered vendors. An attendee may also be a technical support or customer support representative of a business as long as their main job is to support their merchants. Attendees can be identified by the color of their name badge.

All attendees must be registered and paid before participating in the conference. We understand there may be person(s) or company(ies) that meet both definitions. Any person(s) wearing an attendee name badge are prohibited from soliciting business from other attendees during open conference hours. Please report any violation to a Board Member immediately.

Industry Expert Defined

An Industry Expert is defined as Senior, Executive, Sales or Technical Management of an ISO, Bank, Card Processing or Issuing company, Investment firm, Financial Services company, Lending company, Marketing company, Manufacturing company, Attorneys, Regulatory and Compliance companies, Software companies, POS companies, previous Exhibitor (Vendor) who is not exhibiting at a table and others deemed not applicable as an "Attendee" per an Executive Member of the NEAA Board.  

Suitcasing by any of the above, i.e. gaining access to the event to solicit business in the aisles or other public spaces used for the conference is not permitted. This practice skirts the support of the vendor/exhibitors and sponsors who have contributed time and money to exhibit at the conference. Anyone who is observed to be acting as an exhibitor/vendor and soliciting business, booking meetings in the public spaces or handing out information on their business who is not a registered vendor will be asked to leave immediately. Any Hospitality suites and usage of Meeting Rooms must be approved prior to the event by the NEAA Executive Board.

 Any person(s) reported for violating these prohibitions will be removed from the conference and barred from attending future conferences.
