Registration Information
To register for ADS, follow these instructions:

  1. Choose ADS/HDAW or ADS Only: The ADS Convention is being co-located with HDAW. All ADS members are encouraged to register for both ADS and HDAW.

    Please note that ADS and HDAW registrations are separate. To register for HDAW, click here. To exhibit at HDAW, click here. Only ADS members who are in good standing as of October 31, 2019 receive discounted HDAW registration rates. Certain HDAW conditions apply.

    Members may choose to attend ADS only but those registering for both get savings of $450-$905/ADS registration. ADS will verify members who register for the discounted ADS Convention/HDAW combo rate. If an ADS member registers for the discounted rate but does not register with HDAW, ADS will charge the difference between the combo rate and the Convention only rate or cancel the registration without refund.

  2. Pick Your ADS Registration Category: This year, there are two ADS registration categories: Service/Distributor Category or Supplier Category. Those categories are mapped to your member type.

    Service/Distributor Category: Service Members, Replacement Parts Distributor Members, Technical Training Members, Associate Members, Honorary Members.

    Supplier Category: Allied Equipment Manufacturer and Distributor Members, Manufacturer Members, Diesel Engine and Vehicle Manufacturer Members and Replacement Parts Manufacturer Members
