Exhibitor Registration Is Now Open

CAPCSD 2022 Annual Conference

Wednesday, April 20 - Saturday, April 23, 2022

Portland Oregon

Exhibitor/Sponsor Information

The Council of Academic Programs in Communication Sciences and Disorders (CAPCSD) is an organization representing over 325 academic programs in universities and colleges that offer undergraduate, graduate, and doctoral education in audiology, speech-language pathology, and speech-language-hearing sciences.

The program representatives are responsible for purchasing equipment, materials, and services for their programs as well as making recommendations and decisions regarding textbook selection. They are interested in the latest teaching technologies that apply to lecture, small-group, and laboratory teaching, as well as equipment to facilitate research data collection in the speech, language, and hearing sciences. Databases and other programs that track student progress, accreditation tasks, and client services are of interest as well. Approximately one-half of the attendees are responsible for providing clinical service delivery and therefore have an interest in business applications that permit more efficient and effective delivery of services in a rehabilitation environment.

We are excited to return to a face-to-face conference. As you know, we had to cancel the 2020 conference and 2021 was held virtually. After two years, we look forward to bringing CAPCSD members and conference exhibitors together again at the Portland Hilton Downtown. For the 2022 conference, CAPCSD needed to adjust our space at the hotel in an effort to right-size the event.

What is different in 2022?

  • CAPCSD anticipates a slightly smaller crowd of around 350 participants. We certainly hope for more but also realize it could be less.  Initial interest in conference registrations has been high.
  • Exhibits will be located in the foyer area outside the major meeting rooms. CAPCSD will provide security for this area since it is open to the public.
  • Exhibits will be limited to one table each so we can serve as many of our exhibitor partners as possible.
  • The booth rental system has been streamlined so it is easier for the majority of our exhibitors/sponsor partners.
    • Exhibit table rental now includes two (2) staff members meal tickets instead of one (1)
    • Companies will now select their table first and then add on any sponsor items

CAPCSD recognizes that these changes may not be ideal for some of our exhibitor partners, but the adjustments were necessary.  We hope that being back in front of your current customers and potential customers will be productive and exciting as you reconnect.

Visit the CAPCSD Annual Conference website to find information about the organization and the 2022 conference.

We are excited to have you join us in Portland.

COVID-19 Vaccination Policy

CAPCSD requires that everyone attending the Annual Conference, and all related CAPCSD events at the Hilton Portland Downtown, Portland, Oregon, April 18-23, 2022, be fully vaccinated for COVID-19. The requirement includes presenters, attendees, exhibitors, vendors, guests, and staff.

CAPCSD will not accept a negative COVID test in lieu of proof of vaccination. Participants must verify proof of vaccination through CrowdPass in advance of the conference or show their vaccination card if registering onsite. If proof of vaccination is not provided, access to the conference will not be permitted.

How to Get CrowdPass Verification

CAPCSD is using a HIPAA-compliant service called CrowdPass to verify COVID-19 vaccinations. The online process is simple, secure, and takes only a couple of minutes.

  • Make a copy of your COVID-19 vaccination card. You will need to upload a copy in CrowdPass.
  • Complete the CrowdPass verification form.
  • CrowdPass follows a two-step verification process that may take up to 12 hours. Most verifications are completed within an hour or two, but please be patient if you do not receive your confirmation until the next day.
  • When you receive your CrowdPass approval email, forward it to Michelle at

All exhibitor staff must complete their CrowdPass verification as soon as possible and no later than Wednesday, April 6th. Exhibitor staff without verification will not be allowed access to the exhibit floor or the conference.  CAPCSD will send out a link for each staff member to upload their vaccination proof in a couple of weeks.
