Good Afternoon,

Below are updates for this September's Specialty & Agro Chemicals America show (September 4-5, Charleston, SC), as well as the 2020 Specialty & Custom Chemicals America show returning to Fort Worth, TX, next February 10-12.

Registration Rate Deadline: August 23

Exhibitor staff and attendees all pay the same flat badge rate of $425 through August 23 ($455 after), and this registration fee is reinvested into multiple catering and networking functions over the course of the show. Aside from the typical business value offered by the exhibits and conference program, our event provides additional networking opportunities around catered breakfasts, lunches, and open bar & hors d'oeuvres receptions (attendees are on their own for dinners).

**Beware of Scams Selling You Lists, Rooms, Exhibitor Services

This year we have seen a lot more scammers trying to sell services to our Charleston show attendees.  Be aware that we do not partner with any hotel booking agency (see hotel info section below), nor do we publish or sell the show attendee list email addresses.  Plus, you do not need to buy the attendee list since we already provide access to it through the show networking portal (see link above).

The only official show vendors you should trust are:

  • PRX Expo (Danielle), who handle our exhibition setup and exhibitor materials shipping and handling (see Exhibitor Manual link below).
  • ExpoTrac Registration, who handle all exhibit space and individual badge registrations, and from whom you receive show confirmation emails and receipts (
