Exhibitors receive two (2) complimentary registrations per 100 square feet of space rented. If you have not received this email or are experiencing issues with registration, please contact ATS directly at questions@american-tradeshow.com.

AFA has negotiated a discounted block of rooms at a variety of hotels in downtown Nashville. You can view the list of hotels here

PLEASE NOTE: We are hearing that some of our exhibitors have received calls from companies claiming to be in charge of handling hotel reservations for the show. FENCETECH does not use third-party housing companies and these calls are not authorized by the AFA or FENCETECH. ALL official registration & housing communication will come directly from AFA or our registration partner ATS. If the email did not come from either of these sources, then it will not be a legitimate source of information. If you receive solicitations for housing reservations, please send an email to FENCETECH@AmericanFenceAssociation.com.
