I want to be a new exhibitor…why do I have to wait to find out if I have an exhibit?

To honor those exhibitors who have supported CCSAD in the past, we allow them the option to sign up first for the following year. When Exhibitor Registration opens, CCSAD allows the previous year’s exhibitors 45 days to sign up for an exhibit space. During that period, we ask any new exhibitors to sign up on our website to be notified when open registration begins. Exhibitors are notified from that list on a first-come, first-served basis, with preference given to new exhibitors who are Patrons.

I am on the waiting list. What are my chances of getting in?

In an average year, approximately 5 exhibit spaces are cancelled and reassigned prior to the Symposium, with the majority of cancellations occurring about 2-4 weeks prior to the show.

Will I be able to get the same exhibit space every year?

Remember that booths are sold on a first-come, first-served basis. however, as long as the exhibit space has not already been sold to another member who registered earlier than you, then the location should be yours. So register early!

Can I choose my own exhibit space?

You can choose from any available exhibit spaces.

Can I purchase an exhibit on site?

Unfortunately, no. We expect to sell out in early spring. Please add your name to those interested in exhibiting here and you will be notified as soon as a space comes available.

When is the payment deadline?

The exhibit will be held as Pending for 60 days after receipt of this contract. If payment is not received within 60 days of receipt of contract, the exhibit will be marked Available and contract will be null and void. Regardless of purchase date, all exhibits and sponsorships must be paid in full 45 days prior to the start of the event.

Where can I register for a booth and find a booth contract?

The reservation process for exhibits is available at beginning April. Detailed instructions for registering are available on the website. Once you have finished the online registration process, a contract is immediately emailed to you from our system. If you don’t receive it, please contact us and we will send you a PDF version via email.

Do I have carpet in my booth?

Yes, carpeting is included in your booth costs, as well as a draped table, and two chairs.

Where can I get electricity?

Electricity is available for an additional fee. You can include electricity during your exhibit registration on It will be available to add up to 2 weeks prior by signing in to your exhibit account and updating your choices.

I already registered my exhibit – why do I have to register again?

During exhibit registration you will be asked to list the primary contact name that will appear in the brochure, as well as a secondary contact (if applicable) who will be receiving all of the details about exhibiting and the conference. In April, you will receive an email asking to register the Exhibit Staff. Even if they are the same as the primary contact, they will still need to register as the staff for the exhibit. If staff plans to attend any of the workshops (2 complimentary registrations come with the exhibit that have full CEs) they need to select which workshops that they are going to attend. Even if they do not plan to attend any workshops, they will still need to register as staff.

Where can I send advance shipments?

The Resort & Conference Center at Hyannis will only be able to accept shipments a week before the conference begins. If you require different accommodations, please contact the shipping department at the Resort and Conference Center to make arrangements.

Where can I pick up my booth?

If you sent your materials to CCSAD through SER, your packages will be placed at your exhibit space. If you sent them to the Golf Shop in the hotel, you will need to go to the Golf Shop to sign for your packages.

Will there be someone from CCSAD there to help me?

Yes — our exhibit hall host and members of the C4 team will be there to assist. C4 conferences are the only ones to provide you with a full-time contact to address any concerns and assist with any exhibitor/ patron related issues. We can assist you with shipping issues, raffle/giveaways, questions, anything exhibitor/patron related.

  • CCSAD is a wonderful conference bringing together addiction professionals of all types in one large collaborative setting. It has become an absolute must for me each year and provides excellent quality and value for continuing medical education.

  • This event was one of the most informative learning experiences I've ever had in my 28 years of work!

  • The Cape Cod Symposium is a primary source of new information and new developments in the field of addiction. It is my most important professional development activity every year. The reputation of the conference seems to just keep getting better and better. See you in September.

  • I have gone to many conferences in my over 30 years in the addiction field and I can say I like this one the best. It was professional people with great, knowledge, insights, and experiences getting together and sharing and supporting each other. That to me is what it is all about.

  • I look forward to this conference every year. I always leave with a full tool bag and a renewed confidence in new and exciting ways to take care of those suffering from addictions!

  • CCSAD continues to be the premier training and education event for the addiction field because it does so well what others try to do, but fall short. It provides the opportunity for the frontline practitioner and administrator to experience gold standard, relevant, challenging, thought-provoking, and meaningful content, while also offering unique networking opportunities that are both fun and renewing for the spirit. One simply can't do better!
