Important EDS 2024 Information

It is time to start planning for EDS 2024! We are looking forward to seeing everyone in Las Vegas May 13-17, 2024, at the Mirage. 

  1. Only Early Space Reservation for Exhibitors is currently open. If your company has had space at EDS in previous years, you should have received an invitation email from EDS Management inviting you to begin the registration process. Please contact [email protected] if you have not received that email. Note: all invoices must be paid by DECEMBER 31, 2023, in order to receive the Early Bird pricing. 
  2. Attendee Registration will open in mid-January. If you have registered to attend EDS in prior years, you will receive an invitation email from EDS Management with the passcode that you need to access the online registration system. 
  3. Mirage Hotel Reservations – the booking link to reserve sleeping rooms at the Mirage will be emailed to you by EDS Management when your registration is confirmed. For companies renting space at EDS, this is when your payment is processed. For attendees, you will receive the link when you register in January. ONLY BOOK SLEEPING ROOMS AT THE MIRAGE VIA THE LINK PROVIDED IN A COMMUNICATION FROM EDS MANAGEMENT. There are many rooming scams circulating via email, particularly ones that say that Mirage is sold out or close to selling out. EDS Management has sufficient rooms for EDS 2024 and if rooms are not booked through the official EDS Management link, EDS Management will be unable to help you if a problem arises. Please exercise caution when viewing any email referring to EDS that does not actually come from EDS Management.
